Jen of Not Microwave Safe chose Sticky Buns aka Cinnamon Rolls! After reading the recipe three times -- these are also OVERNIGHT Sticky Buns!
The first and last time I tried a yeast recipe, I totally flopped.... and wouldn't you know it, it was an SMS recipe (the bee stings). This time around, I didnt cut the recipe in half. I also left the dough out for the first rise OVERNIGHT (the recipe says the dough will rise after about 2 hours..... uh.... my a$$!). Anyway, Friday night I made the dough and left it out. When I woke up on Saturday morning, I ran to check on the dough. It rose!!! I was thrilled. I punched it down and then rolled it out. I HATE rolling dough. It never works for me. And this time was no exception. This dough was extremely sticky... no matter how much more flour i used to "dust." Eventually I got it to work, but it wasn't a nice rectangle like it was suppose to be. I'm not sure what shape it was... more like an oval. (Sorry, I was too frustrated at this time, so there are no photos of the dough rising or after it was rolled.)
Enough blabbering, already! Right? Here are the photos:
Out of the oven, sticky sauce STILL boiling!
Cooling & soaking up the sticky, buttery sauce. As you can see my rolling and cutting yielded some funky-shaped rolls.
I didnt think there was enough sugar so i added more!
After all that... i totally forgot about the almonds! I love nuts, too, but these were fine just the way they were. If you have a sweet tooth and want a total sugar high, MAKE THESE! These are over the top! The sticky sauce was unbelievable... i think i'm going to make the sauce and use it as an ice cream topping or something. These were amazing! Even though this was time consuming, I'd make these again — hubs cannot wait -- he totally loved these. Thanks, Jen... this was a great choice!
