Sticky Buns

 I came  across sticky buns earlier this week while browsing a blog. They looked really good. I didn't have all the ingredients for that particular recipe, so I used my cinammon roll recipe for the dough, and I used a topping recipe I found on They turned out pretty darn good for being my first attempt.

Sticky Buns
Sweet Dough Recipe click here

3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
4 Tblsp. unsalted butter
3 Tblsp. honey
1 Tblsp. light corn syrup
1 1/2 coarse chopped pecans (I used walnuts)

Make your dough according to directions, and set aside to rise.

 Combine all your topping ingredients except the nuts, in a sauce pot and heat just until melted, take off heat. Pour your sauce into a 9x13 baking pan and coat the bottom evenly. Sprinkle your nuts over the sauce. Set aside. 
 Take your dough after it has risen properly, and using your hands shape it into a rectangle on top of your floured counter.

 Roll out into a 15x9 rectangle.

 Spread the butter covering the dough, sprinkle the sugar, then the cinammon.

 Roll into a log.

 Cut into 12 slices.

 Place your rolls into your baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled in size about 1 hour.

 Take your rolls and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

 Remove your rolls from the oven using oven mitts.

Immediately invert your rolls onto a platter or tray, being carefull not to touch the syrup, its burning hot!

Note: Do not let your rolls cool before you invert them onto a tray, they will stick and not be able to come loose as easily.
