Caramel Pecan Sticky Buns (Redbook)


  • 1/2 cup(s) dark-brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) honey
  • 1/2 cup(s) pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1 can(s) (16 1/3-ounce) reduced-fat buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/4 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon(s) melted butter
  • 1/3 cup(s) confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoon(s) low-fat milk

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small saucepan, heat brown sugar, butter, honey, and 1 tablespoon water over medium heat, until mixture is smooth. Pour into a 9-inch-round cake pan. Sprinkle pecans over mixture, then place biscuits on top of pecans in pan.
  2. In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and cinnamon. Brush each biscuit with melted butter; sprinkle with ­cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake 20 minutes or until tops of biscuits are browned. Remove from oven and immediately invert onto a wire rack (with foil underneath to catch drips); let cool slightly.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together glaze ingredients and drizzle over buns. Serve warm.
