Guest Feature: Puff Pastry Sticky Buns

“I really don’t think I need buns of steel. I’d be happy with buns of cinnamon.” Ellen DeGeneres. We all have mornings like this, when the mood strikes for something homemade, sweet, and cinnamon.

On the occasional lazy Sunday morning, there’s nothing like fresh baked bread swirled with cinnamon and brown sugar. The trouble with a homemade cinnamon bun however, is that it requires time and preparation…maybe even more prep than your other buns, the steel ones. But before you abandon your sticky bun craving, there is a quick fix to the problem. It’s frozen Puff Pastry. Puff Pastry Sticky Buns are a cheeky little alternative when you don’t have the time to prepare the dough.

While traditional sticky buns require several hours, sometimes a whole day of prep, Puff Pastry Sticky Buns can be assembled and baked in about 30 minutes, with very little planning.
It’s simple. Set the butter out on your countertop to soften overnight, and transfer a box of frozen pastry from the freezer to the fridge. In the morning, your favorite little honey buns will be eager to help you assemble the ingredients. A sprinkle of brown sugar and cinnamon, and you’ll be ready to roll!
