Print Recipe


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter , room temperature (170 grams)
  • 1/3 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (70 grams)
  • 1/2 cup pecans , chopped (57 grams)
  • 1 package frozen puff pastry , thawed (2 sheets)


  • 2 tablespoons butter , melted and cooled
  • 2/3 cup packed light or dark brown sugar (140 grams)
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Generously grease a regular muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • With an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy, 2-3 minutes. Divide evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Top with pecans.
  • On a lightly floured surface, unfold one thawed pastry sheet. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup of the brown sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cinnamon, leaving a 1 inch border around the edges.
  • Gently roll up puff pastry perpendicular to the seams where it was folded. Cut into 6 equal pieces. Place in muffin cups, pressing down gently on the butter mixture and pecans.
  • Repeat with second sheet of puff pastry.
  • Place muffin pan on a sheet pan (to catch overflowing caramel, do not skip this step!) and bake until puffed and golden, about 25-30 minutes. Let cool in the pan 5 minutes, then turn out onto a plate. Use a spoon to scoop out any pecans and caramel leftover in the pan and put on top of sticky buns.
  • Sticky buns are best consumed the day they are baked.
