Homemade Sticky Buns (Recipe)
Ooey, gooey, goodness...the stickier, the better!
Basically sticky buns are much the same as cinnamon rolls, except just ooeyer & gooeyer! Some relish the cinnamon twist while others take on their on special spin. Sticky buns are delicious dessert or breakfast pastries made with leavened dough. Traditional sticky bun recipes call for a glazed topping with pecans, maple syrup or honey, cinnamon, and butter. An all-time favorite...the honey bun!

Then, fry the store bought variety! Yum!
