Pecan Honey Sticky Buns
This week for Tuesdays with Dorie, we got another rewind, where you can make a recipe that you missed or remake something that you really liked the first time. This is only the second rewind that I’ve had since joining Tuesdays with Dorie. For the first rewind, I made Brioche Raisin Snails, which is made with brioche dough. I used half of the brioche dough for the raisin snails and the other half for this recipe: Pecan Honey Sticky Buns. Check out the Tuesdays with Dorie site to see what the other TWD bakers decided to make this week.
This recipe was selected back in May 2008 by Madam Chow’s Kitchen. She has the recipe posted and you can see it on her blog. I hadn’t made cinnamon rolls since probably junior high, so I was excited to make these. They do take a bit of time, but with the holidays there are more lazy days. You can make the dough and then add the cinnamon sugar and roll them up and freeze it for when you need it. I did that and it turned out perfectly. I took the dough out of the freezer the night before I wanted to bake them and then shaped them in the morning.
These aren’t quite as quick as scones to bake, because they still have to rise for nearly two hours once you put the sticky bun topping in the pan and slice the rolls. I made these when we had guests over and it worked out great since they get up later than my husband and I usually do. They were so beautiful when they came out the pan, gooey and sticky and oh so good. We all enjoyed them a lot. These are a bit more effort but they are certainly worth it for a special occasion.
