Leave Me Alone…..

…..while I dig into these Sticky Buns! They are so incredibly sticky and tasty I want to sit down with my paper, cup of coffee and enjoy. You can always substitute prepared cinnamon rolls in a tube for this recipe if desired. Simply follow the recipe and you, too, will be saying the same thing to everyone “Leave Me alone!”.

Apple Cranberry Sticky Buns
Makes 12 Sticky Buns

1 recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cups*
1 1/2 c. diced apple
1 1/2 c. dried cranberries
1 1/2 c. chopped nuts of your choice
2 c. brown sugar

Heavily spray a 12- cup muffin tin(or of course two 5-cup tins) with nonstick cooking spray. Evenly divide the brown sugar into cups and then evenly spread the chopped apples, cranberries and chopped nuts on top of the brown sugar. Push one cinnamon roll into each muffin cup, slightly pushing down into the cups so that the dough meets the sugar/fruit mixture. Bake 25-30 minutes, or until browned on top. immediately remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes. Invert onto a large serving plate or platter and enjoy while hot and sticky,.

Want a great sweet sauce for these buns? Mix together 2 c. pureed pumpkin in a saucepan with 1 c. apple cider and 1 teaspoon lemon or lime juice. Whisk well and heat over medium heat until hot. Remove and enjoy.
