sticky bun recipe from Vista Verde Ranch

The snow falling outside is wonderful to play in, but also makes us want to come inside and curl up in front of the fire with a yummy treat. Well, here is a great option for that yummy treat, and a ranch favorite! This recipe makes approximately 2 dozen rolls

 

Ingredients:

Danish dough, one sheet, 17” x 25”

1 pound unsalted butter, whipped

1 Tblsp. Ground cinnamon

8 Tblsp. Granulated sugar

1 cup pecans, chopped

1 cup maple syrup

8 ounces melted butter

 

Method:

  1. If the dough is frozen, allow it to warm slightly, but not too much, if too soft it will be difficult to roll, if too frozen, it will crack!
  2. Whip the butter in a mixer with a paddle attachment until very soft and spreadable. Spread the butter evenly over the entire surface of the dough with a spatula.
  3. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and sprinkle over the entire surface of the dough.
  4. Tightly roll the dough evenly into a log. Wrap the dough first in plastic wrap and then in foil. Refrigerate overnight to set up.
