I never thought this would happen to me, but I have a recipe question.
My family has cinnamon/sticky buns (I don’t know what the technical term for them is) every year for Christmas breakfast and I thought this year it would be nice to make them instead of buying them (for reference, we usually get pecan rolls from Seven Stars bakery in Providence if that means anything to you).
I am a proficient but not particularly skilled baker so I would prefer nothing too complicated, although I am willing to experiment (hence my asking in September); to be honest, I’d like something that is just complicated enough to be impressive (maybe involving yeast or something; my mother will be very impressed if I use yeast) but not so complicated that I can screw it up. Ideally I’d be able to get the preparation done the night before, leave the rolls in the fridge overnight and bake them in the morning so that they are hot and fresh from the oven, but if that’s not a possibility that’s totally fine, feel free to correct any sticky-roll related misconceptions that I might have.
In general, I think I’d like them very warm and soft and gooey on the inside but a little crispier on the outside and with a delicious glaze of some variety, and I prefer no nuts but nuts are okay if they are required for deliciousness. If you could please give me your absolute best, tastiest recipes for cinnamon/sticky buns I would be very grateful. Thank you so much for your help!
