I've made sticky buns now for two Christmas mornings past. Does an action performed two times make it tradition?
The first time I attempted them, I used Martha Stewart's sticky bun recipe from her Baking Handbook. The second time (this year) I made them using Alton Brown's Overnight Cinnamon Rolls Recipe.
Alton's accompanying video helped visually simplify the seemingly complicated recipe steps.
I got up super early Christmas morning to pop them in the oven and the smell was straight-up outrageous. After they cooled, I draped them in cream cheese icing and ate three whole ones with some delicious organic coffee. What a way to relish the warm glow of the tree topped by that crazy, pulsating, plastic, Las Vegas star (RIP).
I can't wait to make these for Daniel.
P.s. Alton's buns are much more memorable than Martha's.
