Jo Ellen's Sticky Buns

 This recipe comes from a friend from Racine, WI.  We were in a stitching group together back 20-25 years ago.  I haven't made these in a long time.  It is a fun recipe since it uses ice cream.  This recipe is quick, easy and tasty.

1 stick butter

1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar

Melt butter and add ice cream to the melted butter.  Stir in the sugars and the chopped nuts.  Put in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. 

Cut the cinnamon rolls into quarters, or if using the dough, cut into small pieces and roll into balls.  Roll in cinnamon and sugar.(Beth put the balls and cinnamon and sugar in a Ziploc and shook)

Place the dough on top of the butter mixture.  Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes.  Let stand for 5 minutes and then flip out onto a jelly roll pan and enjoy!
