Secret Recipe!

By request I have decided to let everyone know the secret recipe for the Sticky Buns that my family makes for Thanksgiving.

-1 frozen bread dough (found in the frozen section at the grocery store)
-Light Brown Sugar
-1 Stick of Margerine or Butter
-Nuts (Walnuts or Pecans)
1. Defrost bread dough and let it rise.
2. Roll out bread dough on a floured surface. This takes a while and a lot of muscle, but you can do it! Make sure the dough is pretty flat and kind of a rectangle shape.

3. In a sauce pan melt the stick of butter, once it is melted you can add about half a cup of brown sugar, a few shakes of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. I never measure but basically you want the mixture to be goopy.
4. Sprinkle the bread dough with cinnamon and nutmeg then pour almost all of the butter and brown sugar mixture onto the flat dough.
5. Roll the dough into a tube, make sure the butter doesn't spill out!
6. In a 9x9 glass pan spread chopped nuts on the bottom of the pan. Or if you don't want to use nuts you should just spray the pan with Pam.
7. Cut the tube into 1.5 inch sections and lay the sections into the pan. Be sure to spread them out so they aren't touching. Then you can pour the rest of the butter/brown sugar mix on top of them.

8. Cover the buns with a dish towel and let them rise for about 15 minutes. (If the oven is on I usually put them on top of the stove so the heat will help them rise)
9. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes or until the edges are golden.
10. Once the pan has cooled a little flip the buns over onto a nice plate and enjoy!!!!

I made a frosting for these ones, that isn't in the family recipe but Charlie and Lizzie wanted frosting so I made it. The frosting was made with half a stick of melted margarine, some milk, vanilla and confectioner sugar, just stir in those ingredients until you get the right consistency.
I hope you all enjoy my recipe and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I have added this to the "Sew-N-Tell over on Amy's Blog which for this week has been converted into a "Bake/Cook-N-Tell". I'm looking forward to finding some new delicious recipies for next year or for Christmas, alhough I will probably make Charlie cook them!**
