Reviewed easy sticky buns

7 hours ago on FoodNetwork.com

I wouldn't call these "buns" at all. The sugar/butter was a tasty caramel that we couldn't enjoy since it was stuck to the bottom of the pan. As others noted, the sugar burned before the pastry cooked through. What we were able to scrape out of the pan was OK but will not make this mess again.

I made these for Thanksgiving last week and they were a HUGE hit! I have been unsuccessful the past few years at making homemade yeast rolls that aren't dry as a desert. This recipe was very very easy to whip up and they turned out perfect! The little pat of butter in the middle made a light little pillow inside--yummy!

I saw this episode on Cooking Channel earlier this week and it sounded great. I was wanting to try a new cut of meat to serve the fam. First of all, I thought the flavor was very good. I like a thicker sauce typically but it was very tasty and the kids and husband agreed. I used chuck short ribs because that's what was on sale. It went togeth"

These are great! What a great alternative to roasting or boiling. I used a specialty "honey gold" potato that was on sale (about golf ball size). I don't have a dutch oven so used a heavy saucepan and made sure to keep lid on and shake it every 5 minutes or so. Took about 25 minutes and they were delish! Potatoes and butter and parsley--yum!

Delicious!! Even after a huge Christmas dinner, this still was the hit of the table. I had to sub with cream instead of whole milk but it just made it even better. Fabulous!

Oh my!! This cake was incredible--rich, creamy and not TOO sweet. I only had 2 problems. Being the only cook in the country without a food processor, the crust was a little bit of a pain (chopping the nuts and chips up but I made it work with a mini-chopper.

Tried this for Thanksgiving and it was a good pie. "Sweating" the apples and minimal sugar intrigued me. I went to a local "Cook's Station" store & got the bird for $4 and RIGHT next to it happen to be a 2 in' quich pan for $22. Skipped the grains b/c knew kids wouldn't go for it. Found tapico flour for $2 @ whole foods. Presentation was great--will...

I read all 27 reviews and decided to do the 3 egg/3 yeast pack alternative. I added extra 1/2 c flour and dough was SUPER wet which made me nervous. But they still acted just as it was supposed to and looked beautifully golden brown out of the oven. The taste and texture was great! Just what I wanted. But I certainly regretted adding that extra...
