I have to admit I have been playing ketchup for a few weeks now trying to find the time to get all my newest recipes posted for you all. So don’t be alarmed if you see a bit of Christmas greenery in one of the pictures here. I really am not that far ahead of myself. This recipe is bringing up the rear on the ones I haven’t had time to post. The holidays of course, are always a very busy time for me. And I just don’t know where January went!!!And here it is February already and we are in the midst of the season of amore. Well for a taste you will love, look no further.

I made these on a whim after buying some dough sheets in the can from Pillsbury when they were on sale. I was remembering a sticky buns recipe I had made some years ago for the ABM that I liked. But really, I needed something that put together a little more quickly than bread dough from scratch. I had the idea that the dough would be lovely for sticky buns and thought to do them that way. The flavor is a bit like bear claws and the flaky dough is almost as delicate as Danish pastry. They are absolutely nom nom.
I do hope you try them!

One thing about these is that because they are indeed sticky, and the dough is delicate, once you invert the pan and get them out, if you aren’t eating them immediately, you might want to put them on a buttered plate or waxed paper or nonstick foil because the topping gets stickier and stickier as it cools. So keep it in mind. Not that should last long at your kitchen table.

  1. Anything with that level of caramel and pecans is clearly going to be a winner. They wouldn’t last long enough to need that buttered plate in our house trust me!
