Puff Pastry Sticky Buns

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup (70 grams) light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (57 grams) pecans, chopped
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry (2 sheets), thawed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 2/3 cup (140 grams) light or dark brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously grease a regular muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
With an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy, 2-3 minutes. Divide evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Top with pecans.
On a lightly floured surface, unfold one thawed pastry sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of the brown sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon, leaving a 1 inch border around the edges.
Gently roll up puff pastry perpendicular to the seams where it was folded. Cut into 6 equal pieces. Place in muffin cups, pressing down gently on the butter mixture and pecans.
Repeat with second sheet of puff pastry.
Place muffin pan on a sheet pan (to catch overflowing caramel, do not skip this step!) and bake until puffed and golden, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool in the pan 5 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Use a spoon to scoop out any pecans and caramel leftover in the pan and put on top of sticky buns.
Sticky buns are best consumed the day they are baked.
