If you like sticky buns, like to cook, and live in a cold climate, I suggest you purchase the cookbook, "More Best Recipes" from the editors of Cook's Illustrated.
This is a huge book (790 pages) and is selling for $15.98 on Amazon. What a deal!
These recipes have been tested and retested and I always feel secure when cooking from this book.
There is a whole lot of cooking and reading to be done from this book.
I was up early this morning. It was chilly outside and I had all the ingredients I needed
to make these sticky buns including pecans that my daughter brought me from her recent trip to Alabama.
I'm not sure why, but I love to make bread products in the winter months
and get great satisfaction from kneading the dough, watching it rise, and smelling the yeast.
This recipe is quite long because it includes:
the dough, the caramel glaze, the cinnamon-sugar filling, and the pecan topping, and for that reason I encourage you to purchase the book.
It is not difficult to make, but it does take some time.
Included in the recipe are instructions for "overnight" sticky buns, so you may serve fresh sticky buns for a special breakfast.
These can also be warmed in the microwave to go with an impromptu cup of coffee.
Also... if you have some leftover, this is the yummiest thing to do with them:
Our oldest daughter worked in the diner at Penn State while she was a student and they were known for their "grilled stickies".
Just slice each bun vertically in 3 or 4 slices and then sauté on each side in melted butter until warm and toasted. Trust me... these are "to die for"!
