This is a Sunday staple at the Twede Home. We look forward to having them every week. Are they a dessert or simply a side roll? It's still up in the air. Regardless of what it's classified as, its so good we all devour them.
They take next to no time to put together. You just dump tons of sugar and butter onto pre-made roll dough and then let it raise. The wait for them to raise and then bake is what takes the longest! When it bakes the sugar and butter form a sort of caramel that coat each role. Everyone will think you've spent hours working on these.
So here's the recipe to these Unreal Sticky Buns:
1/2 cup pecan halves
1 small package *COOK AND SERVE* butterscotch pudding
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter (melted)
12 Texas Rhodes Rolls
Spray a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray, then dump pecans into bottom. Next add the 12 rolls on top. Then sprinkle the brown sugar, cinnamon, and dry pudding powder over the rolls. Lastly, drizzle butter over the top of all of this then cover with plastic wrap. Let the rolls raise until they are about doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. Turn over onto a sturdy plate and enjoy!
Alisa's notes: I add more pecans than just the half cup. When the rolls are done they get glazed with all the sugar and they are the best part. So I don't skimp on those. Also MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT USE INSTANT PUDDING. It will ruin the rolls and make the glaze goopy and your rolls chewy. It needs to be the Cook and Serve type unless you want gross rolls and an angry family.
Here's a video of how I put it all together!
