Mini Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns

Well, do I have a yummy, pop able little treat for your mouth today!

When I do go to a diner or bakery for breakfast {which is like....never} one of my favorite heart attack inducing foods to get is a big, giant 'ol sticky bun.  Dripping with caramel and pecans, it is like heaven on a plate.

Anyone ever attend the Sunday brunch at the popular restaurant chain Granite City?  If so, they bring a huge plate of these rolls complimentary to your table right when you sit down.  I could live on those rolls at that brunch alone!  {Their cheesy hash browns are killer there too}.

Anyway, I love a sticky bun.  Did that come across yet?  And guess what.....these only have 6 ingredients! There is no FUSS with these rolls - super simple.

Mini Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns

1 pkg. Pillsbury crescent rolls
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 stick of unsalted, softened butter, plus 2 T. 

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Lightly grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan.
3.  In a bowl combine brown sugar, pecans and 1/2 stick of softened butter.
4.  Place 1 T. of mixture into the bottom of the muffin tin and press down.
5.  Lightly flour a flat kitchen surface and roll out crescent rolls, pinching seams together.
6.  Lightly dab with remaining 2 T. of butter and generously sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
7.  Roll up the crescent rolls {horizontally} and slice into 1/2 slices.
8.  Press sliced crescent rolls on top of the brown sugar/pecan mixture.
9.  Bake for 12 minutes.
10.  Invert rolls using a fork onto a plate and serve warm.
11.  Keep extras in a air tight container, will stay fresh for 2-3 days.

Oh my gosh I want to make another pan of these right now!

But watch out they are deadly.  Its easy to pop a few in your mouth without realizing it!

Maybe a good Thanksgiving morning snack?

    Love how easy these are! Pecan rolls are one of my favorites too.

  2. Hells yes - totally making these for Thanksgiving!! I love that they are bite sized, but I can see how you could pop a dozen of these in your mouth without even realizing it!

  3. I know, right? They are addicting, but Thanksgiving day would be a good day to make them - as there are NO calories that day.
