TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie
Pecan Sticky Buns
Not too much to say…except for WOW!
I love these gooey, flakey, buttery, sweet and nutty sticky buns. The recipe was easy and straightforward. Yes, it looks a bit daunting, but it is more about scheduling/timing. It’s helpful to block out at least half a day for the rolling, chilling, filling, chilling, slicing, rising, baking.
I made the dough on Friday night, and even made a mistake when I got distracted. I added all the butter in with the flour at the mixing stage. It worked out completely fine though.
One recommendation, make sure you really adhere to the chilling times. When I went to roll my dough for the second time to sprinkle on the cinnamon-sugar-pecan filling, it started springing back on me. It was a warm day and so I would have benefitted from chilling it a bit longer to get it nice and cold.
The brioche dough has a nice sweetness to it. The dough itself is not super sweet, which works well since more sugar is added in the filling and topping.
