Cinnamon Sweet Stick-y Buns

Who can resist a good food pun? Especially when it's an adorable, easy-to-make sticky bun — on a stick!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 1 can refrigerated crescent dough
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare a mini muffin tin by spraying it with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup softened butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and pecans. Spoon a tablespoon of this mixture into 16 of the muffin tin cups.
  3. Unroll crescent dough. Pinch together seams, and roll out until about 1/4 inch thick. Spread remaining butter over surface. Combine remaining brown sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over surface of buttered dough.
  4. Roll the dough up from one long end to the other. Cut into 16 pieces, approximately 1/4 inch thick.
  5. Place one sliced roll into each muffin tin cup. Place in oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes, then place a pan on the top of the tin and flip over to allow sugar-pecan mixture to coat the top.
  7. Gently insert a wooden stick into the base of each bun to create 'Stick-y Buns'. Enjoy!
