Recipe: Sticky Buns
Sometimes you just need a gooey, sticky, delicious breakfast. My parents recently tried this recipe from the "Carolina Country" magazine and told me that I needed to share it with you. While I generally post recipes that I have tried myself or made up, I'm willing to make exceptions...especially when the pictures look so good. Reading over the recipe it is great because you use pre-made biscuits which would be a huge timesaver over making your own dough. I know some of you crazy people like raisins in with your sticky buns, so if you want to add them I will try and denote in the recipe where you should sprinkle them.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tubes (17.3 ounces each ) large refrigerated biscuits
In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter: cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the pecans. Spoon into a greased 13 X 9 X 2 inch baking pan (Sprinkle in the raisins if desired). In a shallow bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. cut each biscuit in half ( I cut into 1/4s); dip in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place, cut side down, over brown sugar mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown. Invert onto a serving plate; serve warm.
Yield 12 - 16 servings
