TWD/BwJ: Pecan Sticky Buns

It's been awhile since I've made either a brioche or a laminated dough.  This recipe, our second May selection for Baking with Julia, contained both techniques.   Really, this is very easy.  It just requires patience and time.   And the results are ever so delicious.

I used just half the finished dough to make these pecan rolls; I'll use the other half for another recipe in the future.  


While some bakers had issues with their mixers, I had none.   I used my sturdy, rock-solid KA, aka Silver Sage, who didn't disappoint, no moving; no over-heating.

The final result was a flaky, buttery, cinnamon-nut roll that was worth every minute of effort and every stick of butter.   

Thanks to this week's hostesses -- Lynn of Eat Drink Man Woman Dogs Cat and Nicole of Cookies on Friday.  

To see other results and read the comments, head over to the Tuesdays with Dorie website.

Beautiful. I opted out this week, but wish I could sample a tiny taste of one. Another day ;).

Looks delicious. I didn't have any problems with my mixer, though it was by hand.
The result is terrific so that made up for the trouble.

You wouldn't have a pan of those I could serve my Dad & sis in the morning would you ;-) These look delightful.

Very lovely!
My mixer held up to this one as well. She's a trusty one.
