Sunday Morning Sticky Rolls




Hey there everyone, as you can tell my post are not frequent since vacation. I started my 4 yr. old in preschool and I am becoming adjusted to a new schedule. I love writing and cooking about food....I will get back in the swing of things..I promise.
NOW! Lets talk about these amazing sticky buns. You will never guess where I found this recipe! Are you guessing? Out of a novel!!! Yep!! Crazy, I know. I am reading a book called Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult. (She is the auther of My Sisters Keeper) The book is wonderful and one of the characters is a Pastry Chef. She has recipes throughout the book that I can't wait to try. These sticky rolls turned out incredible.




The Recipe for The Sunday Morning Sticky Rolls:




Dough:

3 1/4 cp. AP flour
1/3 cp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 packages of dry yeast
1 cp. of heated milk
1 egg
1/3 stick of butter, soft

CARAMEL:


1 stick of unsalted butter
3/4 cp. of brown sugar
1/4 cp. light corn syrup


3/4 cp. Pecans

2 TB butter, soft



FILLING:
1/2 cp. chopped Pecans
2 TB sugar
2 TB b. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon



1. I added all the ingredients for the dough in my food processor and processed until it formed a ball. I removed it and kneaded for 5 minutes. Set in greased bowl for 1 1/2 hours

2. While I waited. I made the caramel. I added the butter and brown sugar and brought it to a boil. I continued to stir. I removed it from the burner when it began a rapid boil. I added the corn syrup. Then, poured it into a 9x13 pan. Sprinkile the whole pecans on top of the caramel sauce.


3. When the dough was ready I punched it down. I rolled it out into a 15 by 10 inches. I smeared the butter all over and then sprinkled with the filling. I rolled it like a jelly roll. Cut it into 8 equal slices. Refridge for 12 hours. (I make the night before)


4. In the morning through it in the oven...35 minutes on 350.


THESE ARE INCREDIBLE!!!

  14. Every time I come over here, those pork sandwiches hit me where the hunger pains are, and then you put these delicious sticky buns up here...is this what you get when you get up for school at your house? I am willing to go back for someone to cook these for me...we ate cereal when I was growing up :)
