Pecan Caramel Sticky Rolls
Most of you know already that I make my own bread every week. The great thing about my bread recipe is that it's so versatile and I love making many different things with it. One of my favorites is to split some off and make cinnamon rolls, or the ultimate: Sticky Rolls.
Sticky rolls are created by creating a "smear" of butter, cinnamon and sugar that's placed on the bottom of the pan before the rolls go in. Then as they cook, the sugar is melted into a wonderful caramel sauce that cooks into the bottom of the rolls. After you bake them you flip the pan upside down so that the caramel ends up on top and runs down over the rolls. Sound amazing? Yeah, they are.
Typically I'll sprinkle pecans in the smear as well as chop them up throughout the roll, but from now on I've got an even better idea! Artisana sent me some of their nut butters and one of them was a Pecan butter. I decided to spread this on the inside of the roll with some cinnamon and sugar before rolling it up. The great thing was that it spread the pecan flavor all throughout the roll which made it even more amazing than usual.
I've also got an opportunity for you to win some of these great Artisana Nut Butters for yourself. I absolutely loved the single serve squeeze packets. They are so easy to use and I keep them in my desk for a quick snack. I also used some of the Coconut butter to make these awesome Coconut and Lemon Curd cupcakes! The Pecan Butter is organic and made with raw Pecans and Cashews and you're going to have a hard time not just eating it out of the jar before you can use it in this recipe.
The whole Virtual Potluck team is using Artisana nut butters this week so be sure to go check them all out for some other great recipes!
