It took thirty-two hours and five sticks of butter (yes, you read that right), but these beautiful Pecan Sticky Buns are finally ready to devour.
I’ve made these before, via Dorie’s ‘Baking’, albeit with slight differences. Both recipes are time-consuming and incredibly loaded with calories, but the end result is gorgeous and something akin to perfection. Flaky layers of brioche enfold a sugary, cinnamon filling studded with chopped pecans. Drizzled on top is a caramelized brown sugar syrup, dotted with pecan halves. Truly special, these sticky buns make for a perfect breakfast when paired with a steaming cup of coffee, or even as a dessert table addition. They’re also appreciated when gifted to a certain sweet next-door neighbor.
