  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 1/2 lb. Danish dough (note: I use a Basic Sweet Roll Dough recipe from the Food Network).

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together brown sugar and butter until smooth. On low-medium speed, mix in the honey, corn syrup, and vanilla.

Using a vegetable spray, coat a cake pan. Spread the brown sugar mix and nuts on the bottom of the cake pan.

Roll dough out on a floured surfact to 1/4 inch thickness. Spread more brown sugar mixture on top of dough. Cut into 1 inch strips and roll them up and place them in the cake pan. Allow the rolls to proof for about 15 minutes.

Bake in oven for approximately 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the buns to rest for 5 – 10 minutes.

Turn out onto serving plate. Top with more brown sugar mixture and more nuts as desired.
