Maple Pecan Sticky Buns

1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped Pecans
1 loaf of thawed bread dough
3 tbsp. butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Pour melted butter into the bottom of a 13-by-9-inch baking pan. Drizzle evenly with maple syrup, then sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans; set aside. Roll out dough into a 12-by-16-inch rectangle. Spread softened butter over the surface. Stir together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over butter. Roll up dough (starting with the short side) and pinch seams to seal. Cut dough into 9 slices and place in prepared pan. Cover and let stand in a warm place for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 350F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then invert rolls onto a serving platter.
