what you need
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 pkg. dry active yeast
  • 1 cup very warm milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup pecan halves
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
make it
Mix 2 cups flour, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, salt and yeast in large bowl. Add warm milk, 1/3 cup butter and egg. Beat on low speed 1 minute. Scraping bowl frequently, stir in remaining flour.

Turn onto floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl and turn dough upside down being sure to have dough greased on both sides. Cover and let rise till double in size. Dough is ready if indention remains when touched.

Heat 1 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup butter to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add dark corn syrup. Pour into the bottom of a 9x13 cake pan. Sprinkle with the pecan halves.

Punch down dough and roll out a 15x10 rectangle. Spread with 3 Tbsp. butter. Mix chopped pecans, 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar, 3 Tbsp. brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the buttered dough. Roll up tightly. Pinch edges of dough to seal. Cut 16 1" slices. Place slightly apart and let rise for about 30 min.

Bake at 350°F 30 min or till golden brown. When done, invert onto another plate. I invert mine onto a cookie sheet.
This recipe has been handed down from my Grandmother who loved trying new recipes, and each time I make these it takes me back to my childhood and walking into Grandmas house and smelling these wonderful sticky buns baking.

Here's a little tip when cutting the dough into slices, instead of using a knife, take a long strand of sewing thread and loop it under and over the dough and pull. The thread cuts through the dough cleanly and evenly without deforming the cut.
