Nice (Sticky) Buns

I love my dad.  My dad loves Sticky Buns.  My dad has been searching for a good sticky bun for like 20 years.  Ever since our hometown bakery, The Sticky Bun Shop, closed.   They were a full-service bakery, not just a place for buns.  They made the best birthday sheet cakes ever and it was where I tasted my first flaky, crispy pigs’ ear aka elephant ear aka giant Palmier.

So imagine my excitement when this Bon Appétit crossed my desk.

OMG.  So I set aside a weekend, planning for more time than necessary just to be sure and dove head first into making the most amazing Sticky Buns I have ever tasted.  Was it the milk in the dough, the butter?  So much butter!  The orange zest I folded into the caramel goo?  <—Highly recommended.  All of that combined to make a recipe well worth the time.  I doubled the recipe, individually cut and wrapped each bun once they were cooled and froze them so that my mom and dad could pop one out whenever a craving struck.  Enjoy the photos and click on the mag above for the recipe straight from Bon Ap.
