This is by far the favorite recipe that my mother-in-law would make for all of us for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren loved this dessert after her wonderful holiday meals. She would take the Pecan Roll out of her freezer before our holiday meal to allow it to thaw, so that it would be easier to cut for serving. After our meal, Phillip would cut the entire Pecan Roll into slices. The rest of the evening, there was constant little and big hands reaching for a slice!
3 sleeves of Nabisco Honey Maid Graham Crackers, crushed
1 - 14 oz. 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 in 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 usually make two logs. Wrap log in aluminum foil and place in the 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 a time.
