YAY! National Sticky Bun Day!!


This is a fun and easy recipe that my 6th graders use in class. So if they can do it, your kids can and for you....it's easy peasy when you get a hankering for "sumpin' schickie"!


Let's get started by preheating your oven to 400 degrees.....First, I highly suggest you get some of these new non-stick glass dishes... awesome!

Put in your dish 2 Tbsp. of butter, melt in microwave for about 30 sec.


Add 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar and 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon.


Next, add a 1/4 cup of maple syrup or dark brown corn syrup, BUT first spray your measuring cup with some nonstick cooking spray...


LOOK, it all slides right out!


Stir all together


So it looks like this....


I love nuts on my stickies! About 1/4 cup of your favorite nut or whatever you have on hand.



Arrange your 10 canned biscuits in your dish. It's okay if they don't fit or expect them to be roomy. Squish them in there!


Bake in your preheated 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden...


Now for the tricky part. Place your plate on top of your baked buns, with a potholder in each hand quickly invert them onto your plate. It helps if the plate/platter is basically the same shape as your baking pan.


OH MAN, look at that stickie goodness!!!



.....and so fluffy on the inside....








TA-DA! That is some food styling mastery! hahahaha. Well I am getting better but I do notice this....pictures are always better during the day....at night....certain sites...ahem.....reject my night pictures, even though I 'fix' them on 'picnik'.....oh well. Sometimes that makes me sad....K-man always reassures me..."don't let those idiots make you feel bad about something like a picture, everything tastes great honey!" Awwwwwww.

Anyway....here's the recipe....
