For Monday, February 21st, 2011
Since 1968, it is celebrated on the third Monday in February
President's Day is a day set aside to honor all of the U.S. presidents. We often think of two great presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln when we celebrate this holiday as it falls by design between their birthdays. But more and more of us, look at this day as a tribute to each and every person who has ever served in the office as President of the United States of America. It is a national holiday, although most businesses and industry do not recognize it as a paid holiday.
Microwave caramels and milk in microwavable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until caramels are completely melted, stirring after each minute. Pour into well-greased 8-inch round cake pan; sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the pecans.
Unroll crescent roll dough; separate into 2 rectangles. Press perforations in each rectangle together to seal.
Mix remaining 1/4 cup pecans, sugar, cinnamon and raisins; sprinkle over dough rectangles. Roll up each rectangle, jelly-roll fashion, beginning at one of the short ends. Cut each roll crosswise into slices. Place, cut sides down, in prepared pan. (Sprinkle with any remaining sugar mixture.)
Bake 17 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately invert pan onto serving plate; remove pan. Spread any remaining caramel over buns. Cool slightly.
