Recipe of the week - Week 1
The first in a weekly segment, this weeks Recipe of the Week (ROTW) is
Easy Peasy (but no one has to know) Sticky Buns
Here is what you need
A Muffin Pan (12 compartments)
1 Can Refrigerator Biscuits (no need to get all fancy, the regular ol 10 in a tube ones are perfect)
1/4 C Dark Brown Sugar (Lt works also, but dark makes them ooey gooeyier)
1/4 C Chopped Pecans (optional)
1/2 stick (1/4 C) margarine or butter
There is no precise measuring here. I use about a teaspoon of brown sugar and pecans per muffin and there are 16 t in a 1/4 C. So, you really don't even need to get out those measuring cups.
Preheat the oven to 350
Slice the banana thin (not paper thin, just thin) You will need twenty slices
Place about a teaspoon of brown sugar in 10 muffin compartments
Now place two slices of banana in each of those muffin compartments
Now place a pat of butter in each compartment. Again with the measuring, just get some butter in there. You can easily get 10 pats of butter from that 1/2 stick.
Add on about a teaspoon of pecans. People, I am scooping from the containers here. No method to this madness.
On top of the ingredients place one biscuit dough disc. Press lightly just to get it "set". You don't need to fill the compartment or worry about the dough touching the sides. Heck, if you are feeling crazy just plop the dough in there and go about your business.
Place in preheated oven and bake 8-10 until biscuits are a light golden brown
Invert muffin pan onto a cookie sheet. The buns will fall right out and the goo will ooze down the sides a little. Serve em up!
