Pecan Sticky Buns from ABM Sweet Dough
Today's review is a recipe of Pecan Sticky Buns from an ABM sweet dough recipe, from With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart.
First, this isn't like my sweet dough recipe; it uses water and powdered milk. Mine uses half water, half milk (and 've been known to use half-and-half instead of skim milk... :D) I used this recipe, but added approximately 1-1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. I just like that extra richness in the dough.
Second, it was too dry. I ended up adding almost 1/4 extra cup of water to the bread machine during the mixing process. It came out perfectly, but I really had to watch it for the first part, to make sure I'd added enough/not too much water.
It made a really pretty dough. The other components came together well, but I was really unsure about the filling; it's ALL dry. There's nothing to keep it sticking to the dough. And sure enough, even though I patted it in before I rolled and cut it, it almost all fell out when I cut them. So, I dumped it all on the top (which became the bottom) of the rolls.
They came out of the pans quite easily. I like the fact that it made two separate pans; eight rolls at one time is more than enough for our household. I put the second one in the freezer; I'll let you know how it thaws, but I expect it to be as good as fresh.
This is a YES, PLEASE for my husband! :D He really liked them, thought they had a lot of flavor. I still think there's something lacking, but I'm not sure WHAT. However, since he's the one that will eat them... :D
When I do these again, I'll use what is basically my own recipe now, with the tweaks I added. If you try them, do let me know what you think!
Have a wonderful week! Be BLESSED!
