Sticky Buns

I made sticky buns for Cudjoe and I for breakfast yesterday morning.  They were YUMMY!  
I  was lazing around one day this past week recovering not just from Christmas week but the whole month of December, and I watched an episode of the Barefoot Contessa where she made sticky buns, something she sold at her Barefoot Contessa store.   I had everything I needed to make them except for raisins, but I had Craisins!

What you will need:

1 1/2 sticks of butter, room temperature
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of pecans, chopped

1 Package  (2 sheets of Puff Pastry), defrosted
2 Tablespoons of melted butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
Craisins or Raisins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with parchment paper and place a 12 cup muffin pan on top of parchment paper.

Beat together 1 1/2 cups of butter and 1/3 cup of brown sugar with an electric mixer.  Place one tablespoon of butter and brown sugar mixture into each muffin cup and sprinkle with chopped pecans.

Place a sheet of Puff Pastry on a floured wood cutting board.  Brush pastry with melted butter.  Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of brown sugar, some cinnamon and some craisins.  I did not measure the cinnamon or craisins.  I just "eyeballed" it.  Roll the Puff Pastry tightly jelly roll style.  Cut into six pieces and place on top of brown sugar mixture in the muffin tin and press down a little bit.  Repeat this process one more time.  Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes and then dump onto your parchment paper and let cool.   (Mine did not dump out without help.  I had to use a spoon to help them along.)  (When I make these again, I will use Raisins instead of Craisins.) 

Serve to family and friends!
