Pecan Roll has been a Herring family favorite for as long as I can remember! All of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren called Phillip's Mother, Memaw. Memaw made Pecan Roll several times a year and it was always a treat for all of us. Something so simple tastes so good. I always divide the mixture into two Pecan Rolls. We keep one and we give one to our son, Brent, and his family. This is also a recipe that is always a part of our holidays.
1 box or 3 sleeves of Nabisco Honey Maid Honey Grahams
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
1 cup chopped pecans
Place one sleeve of Graham crackers in a gallon zip-loc bag. Use a rolling pin to crush the graham crackers. Repeat with the other two sleeves of Graham crackers. Pour crushed Graham crackers into a large bowl. Add Eagle Brand Milk and chopped pecans. Use your hands to mix well. After mixing well, shape mixture into a log. You will need to work with the mixture until you get the size and shape that you want. I always make two logs. Wrap log in aluminum foil and place in freezer.
Remove the Pecan Roll from the freezer at least 30 min. before you wish to serve it. It will be easier to slice. Phillip usually slices the entire Pecan Roll the first time that we serve it. He places the leftovers into a container that can go into the freezer and we can then remove one piece at the time.
