Blend 30 seconds with mixer on low speed, scraping sides and bottom of bowl. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in remaining 3 Cups flour. (Dough should remain soft and slightly sticky) Knead 5 minutes, or about 200 turns on a lightly floured board.
  2. Divide dough in half and roll each half into a 12x7 inch rectangle.
  3. Spread each half with 1 Tablespoon soft butter and sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoons cinnamon. Roll up halves, beginning at wide side.
  4. Seal well by pinching the seams. Cut each roll into 12 slices. Coat two 9 inch round cake pans with 1/4 cup melted butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup chopped pecans in each pan. Place 12 dough slices in each pan, leaving a small space between slices. Let rise until doubled. Bake in a preheated 375 F oven for about 30 minutes. Invert pans onto serving plates.
