I saw this recipe in a magazine and adapted it a bit and it came out ooey and gooey and delicious. It’s definitely fun food. I used pareve caramel sauce (it works but not as good as the real deal!) and pizza dough and it came out great.

1 (12 ounces) bottle caramel sauce, I used the no sugar pareve version and it worked
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 stick (1/4 pound) unsalted butter or margarine, melted
3 (7.5 ounces) packages refrigerated biscuit dough or pizza dough

Preheat oven to 350°F. Thoroughly grease a 10-inch tube pan.

Spread 1/3 cup caramel in pan. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup pecans. In a shallow dish, mix sugar and nutmeg. Pour butter or margarine into another shallow dish.

Unroll one package biscuit dough. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces ( alternatively, break off golf ball size pieces of pizza dough and continue) Roll each piece in melted butter and then in sugar mixture. Drop each into pan, covering bottom. Drizzle with 1/3 cup caramel and sprinkle with 1/3 cup pecans. Repeat, layering remaining dough, caramel and nuts, ending with 1/3 cup caramel.

Bake until top is golden brown and a bit crisp, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately turn out onto a large serving plate. There won’t be a piece left!
