“A friend of mine gave me this recipe. I am not sure where I she got it from but these sticky buns are delicious and very simple. The refrigerated biscuits really cut back alot of time. I have posted some pictures to demonstrate the forming of the buns. I always sprinkle a couple of extra pecans on top of the buns before baking just because I like the little extra crunch.”
