Mix the ingredients using a hand or stand mixer.

Now remove the mixing blade, and replace it with the dough hooks.

Turn on to a low speed ( between 1-3), and slowly start adding in the flour. Add about 1/4 cup at a time.

Once the dough has form, remove it from the bowl, and set it to the side.

Lightly oil the bowl, then place the dough back into the bowl, and cover with a clean towel.

Put the dough in a warm place, and let rest for 1 1/2 hours.

Next, punch the middle of the dough ( to remove air).

Flatten the dough.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

Mix until well combined, then slather on top of the dough.

Lightly butter a baking dish, then add in the rolls.

Bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and let cool.

In a medium-size bowl combine 2 tbsp butter, and 2 oz of cream cheese.

Mix well, then add in 2 tsp vanilla extract, and 3 tbsp milk.

Add in the powdered sugar, and mix until creamy.

Sprinkle the pecans onto the rolls, then drizzle on the icing, and caramel.

Serve & enjoy!!
