They were both so great, we decided to include both recipes in the blog. They are delicious, but even better, they're
easy! Because they are made with puff pastry, they only take about 30 minutes to make. For the first kind, we put a butter mixture that turned into syrup in the pan when we baked them. For the second kind, we made a caramel sauce that we poured over the top after they were done baking. The caramel sauce was great and you can also use it with ice cream, pretzels, brownies, pancakes, waffles, and much, MUCH more!
For the Sticky Buns
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 sheets of Puff Pastry
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Roll out the sheets of puff pastry on a lightly floured counter. Brush the pastry with the melted butter and sprinkle with the brown sugar and the cinnamon. Roll it into a log lengthwise and cut it in half. Cut the halves into thirds. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If you are making the kind with caramel sauce, put the pastry pieces in a muffin tin, bake for about 15 minutes and then pour the cooled caramel sauce over them. Then sprinkle with the pecans. If you are using the butter sauce, put about a tablespoon of the chopped pecans on the bottom of the cupcake pan. Then put a spoonful of the butter mixture over the pecans. Then put the sticky buns over the butter mixture and pecans. When it comes out of the oven, the butter will turn into a sauce. Yum!
12 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
1/2 Light Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans
In an electric mixer, mix the butter and the brown sugar. Make sure the butter is room temperature so it will mix smoothly. Put about a tablespoon of the chopped pecans on the bottom of the cupcake pan. Then put a spoonful of the butter sugar mixture over the pecans. Then put the sticky buns over the butter mixture and pecans. Yum!
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
In a medium saucepan melt the butter over a medium flame. Whisk in the brown sugar and stir it until it starts to bubble. Reduce the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients. Let it cool until it is at room temperature.
