  • Dough:
  • 1 -ounce sugar
  • 1 .6 ounces butter, plus 12 ounces for folding process
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Pinch baking powder
  • 1/2 -ounce dry yeast
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1 .1 pounds all-purpose flour

  • 3 ounces honey
  • Splash vanilla extract
  • Pecans
  • Cinnamon Powder
  • Sugar
  • Golden Raisins
  • For the dough: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Cream together the sugar and 1.6 ounces of butter. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Roll dough out flat into a rectangle. Top dough with 1/3 of the remaining butter. Fold the dough over the butter and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove the dough, fold again with 1/3 of the butter, and refrigerate for 1 more hour. Repeat folding process 1 more time, using the last 1/3 of the butter.

  • For the filling: Cream the butter. Add the sugar and vegetable shortening and mix together. Add the honey and vanilla and mix well.

  • To assemble: Put enough filling into each cup of a muffin pan so that it covers the bottom. Sprinkle some pecans over the filling in each cup.

  • Flatten out a piece of dough. Egg wash the surface of the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon powder, sugar, golden raisins and pecans, to taste. Roll the dough into a log and then cut into 1-inch pieces. Place 1 piece into each muffin cup. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Place the muffin pan on a cookie sheet and flip over. Sticky buns should come out with a rounded caramelized pecan top.
