OH SWEET HEAVENS.
My little sister, Anna, made these sticky buns for us while we visited her family over New Year's. And, let me tell you - these are hands down THE BEST sticky buns I've ever had.
When I woke up in the morning and saw this beautiful pan of piping hot, cinnamon-y, gooey sticky buns on the counter, I was certain that Anna had slaved for an hour after we went to bed - and then again that morning. When I told her that, she laughed and said, "Uh, yeah. Took me about 5 minutes last night."
Did you get that? 5 minutes!
Now, Anna is just as accomplished as I am in the kitchen. And, both of us - we LOVE easy recipes. But, they gotta be good. Really good. Or we just don't serve 'em to each other. It's just our sisterly rule.
These sticky buns. They're as easy as boiling water. And, they're out of this world.
Or, as my dear friend, Emily, would say - they're "Cry for your Momma" good!
