I love creating old and new traditions with the family on Christmas morning. One such tradition that started about 5 years ago was serving Pecan Sticky Buns. Christmas morning is the only day that I make them and I love it when out of the blue the kids think of them and ask me to make them. I know that this is one of the things that they look forward to all year long. We have other traditions, but I always think that no matter how old you are, the emotions, love and memories shared over a delicious holiday meal are cherished forever.
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tubes (17.3 oz each) large refrigerated biscuits
Preheat oven to 375°F
In a saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved.
Mix the pecans into the mixture.
Spoon into a greased 13“x 9”x 2″ baking pan or a larger glass Pyrex pie plate works well too.
In a shallow bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar.
Cut each biscuit in half, dip in the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place cut side down into the brown sugar mixture in the pan.
Repeat until the biscuits tightly fill the pan. There may be one or two left over.
Bake at 375°F for approximately 40 minutes or until golden brown. If the edges begin to brown prematurely before the center rolls are done cooking, just cover the edges with aluminum foil and allow the center to remain uncovered to cook and turn golden brown. Check to see if they are done cooking gently with a fork.
Invert onto a serving platter and serve when warm.
