This weeks TWD recipe was Pecan Honey Sticky Buns. I decided to make them for the the morning after our friends' annual bocce tournament. Due to time constraints I have to keep this post super short, but here are some thoughts on this recipe.
1. I would marry these sticky buns if I could.
2. I think my friends would marry me if I promised to make sticky buns for them daily till death do we part.
3. Move over Salt & Vinegar potato chips, Dorie's sticky buns are my latest hangover cure! Don't worry coffee, you're irreplacable.
I had a lot of fun making these, but even more fun sharing them with my friends this morning. Thanks to Mike and LT for hosting yet another amazing party. Congrats to LT for finishing her first half marathon by 10:30, playing bocce by noon and staying up till just before midnight. You are my hero :)
Here are pictures of the sticky buns from start to finish:

At this point, I froze the dough and then took it out the day before I baked it off.
