Cinnamon Sticky Buns

For a generous batch of gooey cinnamon buns in a hurry, Jean Edwards of Indianapolis, Indiana says that it doesn't get much easier than this sticky bun recipe. "I enjoy giving these sweet treats to friends for a 'just because' gift," she notes. "They reheat in the microwave very well."

    Delicious! I have made these a few times and my family eats them right aways! I wasn't sure how to cut the biscuits so I rolled each biscuit into an oval, folded it down longways in half, and then rolled it so it looks like a cinnamon roll.

    So simple yet so good. Hubby and I have made these many many times and will continue to do so. Try adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream to warm buns.

    I ripped the page out of the magazine that this recipe was on over 15 years ago and make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. Everyone absolutely loves it!!! Even tastes great the next day. I always make two huge pans just so there's leftovers.

    I tried this recipe last night, I substituted a few things that I don't have in my kitchen, Used walnuts instead of pecans, 1/3 C brown sugar, 1/3 C dark karo syrup and used 2 large tube of cinnamon rolls instead of biscuits cause I don't have it and omited sugar and cinnamon altogether. It turned up wonderful by 10 Am this morning it's all but a memory, my kids loved it

    These are a must for holiday mornings and especially Father's Day because they're my husband's favorite. Super-easy; I've never felt a need to make them from scratch now that I have this recipe!

    This is one of the quickest cinnamon roll recipes I've ever made and very delicious. Will use the sauce for the sticky buns for other recipes.
