TWD Pecan Honey Sticky Buns

Posted by BAKE-EN at 5:34 AM
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.

Here are the beautiful results:

Better make sure polygamy is legal with buns, because I'm sure that I married them the other day when I took the first bite of the center. Love your pics!

I think my sons would happily exist on these buns alone (as long as I picked the nuts off!). Patrick inhaled 2 and then tried to move on to mine.
Great step by step photos.

they turned out soo good. great job. i like the idea of having those fine buns for a hangover cure. goes so much better with copy, if i do say so myself. :)

I always thought that the best hangover cure was a good Irish breakfast - something greasy and carb loaded. Maybe I'll have to prepare some of these before I plan on getting drunk next time...or maybe even make them in the drunk state? That could be more...interesting.

Wow, giving up salt & vinegar chips for these! They are good!
