APPLE CRANBERRY PECAN STICKY BUNS
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 2 loaves frozen white bread dough thawed
- 1 cup diced apples
- 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
- 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Sprinkle pecans over bottom of a greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Cut each loaf of thawed bread dough into approximately 18 pieces; place half the dough over the pecans. Top with apples and cranberries.
In medium saucepan over medium heat, melt brown sugar, butter, corn syrup and cinnamon, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and baking soda. Cool slightly. Pour over bread dough in pan.
Top with remaining pieces of dough. Cover and let rise until doubled in size (about 1½-2 hours).
Bake in a preheated 350°F oven 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; carefully turn over onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Serve warm.
