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:


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


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

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.
