I've recycled this blog because I think that this is such a perfect Christmas morning breakfast (and because I've had several requests for the recipe). It is still a family favorite, and one that the Cheynes will be enjoying Sunday morning! I pray you all have a blessed and merry Christmas!
I am so excited to share this unbelievably delicious (and unbelievably simple) recipe that is an absolute Cheyne Family favorite! We make these sticky buns often, and my kids love to help make them almost as much as they love to eat them. I have simplified my recipe even further since I first began making these, so I will give you both options.
*This is the original recipe.
2 cans of Grands biscuits (or 3 cans of regular sized biscuits)
1 1/2 sticks of butter
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
2 T water
1-2 cups of chopped pecans (depending upon preference)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. Place cinnamon and sugar in large Zip-Lock bag and mix well. Tear biscuits into bite-sized pieces and place into bag. Toss until pieces are evenly coated. In bottom of a bunt pan, sprinkle about 1/3 of pecans. Then place about 1/2 of biscuits on top. Sprinkle next 1/3 of pecans on top of biscuits and then rest of biscuits followed by last of pecans. Place butter in saucepan over med-high heat. When butter is completely melted, add brown sugar and stir frequently until sugar melts. Stir in water and continue stirring until smooth and about the consistency of syrup. Pour over top of biscuits and pecans and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let cool about 10 minutes, place serving dish or large plate over top of pan, flip over and carefully lift pan off. Voila!...yummy, gooey deliciousness!
*You can skip a step by substituting canned cinnamon rolls for biscuits. Simply tear the cinnamon rolls into pieces and place them in the pan. You don't have to toss these into cinnamon and sugar!
Hope your family enjoys these as much as mine does!
