From package combine flour mixture, yeast and 2 Tablespoons sugar; mix thoroughly. Add water, 2 Tablespoons butter and egg; stir until dough pulls away from sides of bowl. Turn onto lightly floured surface; knead about 5 times or until smooth. If needed, sprinkle with additional flour to reduce stickiness. Cover dough; let rest 5 minutes. Heat honey, 4 Tablespoons butter and brown sugar until melted; mix thoroughly. Spoon evenly into 13x9x2-inch baking pan; sprinkle with pecans. Roll dough to 12×10-inch rectangle; melt remaining 2 Tablespoons butter and spread over dough. Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough. Roll up along 12-inch side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 1-inch slices; place in pan cut-side down. Cover; let rise in warm place about 25 minutes or until doubled. Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Immediately invert onto heat-proof serving plate. Let pan remain 2 to 3 minutes to allow honey to drizzle over rolls.
