Barefoot Contessa Sticky Buns Round 2
I am a little late in posting my Barefoot Bloggers recipe. I have had a secret obsession with reading a new series lately. Melissa at Made By Melissa chose Ina's Easy Sticky Buns from her Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics cookbook (page 240). I was excited to try these sticky buns. They were one of the first recipes that I made out of the new cookbook. It is our tradition to have cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning after presents. I made these and failed miserably. When Melissa chose this recipe I was ready for round 2. I halved the recipe and still they came out a little different then I had imagined. I cut the cooking time down to 25 minutes and yet they were on the verge of being overdone when I got them out of the oven. I also tasted too much butter. I don't know if it was a problem with the puff pastry or the melted butter mixture in the bottom of the pan. The kids did enjoy them warm from the oven but I won't try these for the third time. I should have reduced the amount of butter in the recipe and taken them out of the oven at 22 minutes. The flavour was great but they were just a little too crispy on the outside and buttery on the inside.
