These are great when you want homemade goodies but don't have the time to make them. I sometimes use flaked coconut instead of the pecans for a different taste!

I LOVED this recipe the first time I tried it, but I've made it even easier... I don't see the need to dip each individual ball. I mixed all ingredients for the "goo" including the butter and corn syrup, then I formed all the balls and gently folded them into the goo, just until coated, dumped into the pan, DONE! It's just as good! Try it! Read More

These were quick and yummy but...we all sat down to eat them while they were warm and then as they started to cool hardened caramel literally started forming between our teeth as we chewed! Not sure why this happened I've made sticky buns and monkey breads plenty of times before and never had this problem. Will stick with other recipes. Read More

My family goes GAH-GAH over these sticky buns. When my children know I'm baking these, they run to get their friends. My husband doesn't want to share! I have to double the recipe and bake in a bundt pan. It really looks impressive too when turned out on a plate. It looks like you spent hours on it, but it is sooooo easy.(DON'T try tripling it though. It won't get baked through without the outside getting way too dark.)I also increase the cinnamon by 1/2 tsp, the margarine by 1 Tbsp, the brown sugar by 2 Tbsp, and the pecans by 1/4 cup. Otherwise, the topping is too scant for our taste. If you use the extra large biscuits, you'll need to cut them into thirds, and I wouldn't recommend using the large biscuits for both cans (when doubling). It's just too much dough. For my oven, I have to reduce the heat to 415-425 so the outside doesn't over bake before the inside is done. This is a favorite we'll be baking for many years to come! Read More

I lowered my oven temp. to 425 and baked about 12 minutes. The buns were both soft on the outside and inside. Delicious! Read More

Quick easy and very awesome recipe! I cooked mine at 425 for the same time and they came out really soft. I discovered though that they come out so much BETTER if you cook then in a smaller glass baking dish. Stuff 'em in there and they'll come out perfect. In a metal cake pan they were a bit on the crispy side. I made a simple powdered sugar and milk icing for them. Super yummy! Read More

I used two cans of biscuits in a round pan. These were fast and delicious. I drizzled with maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Mine turned out pretty good. The outer biscuts did get a little too brown making them really hard but the center was nice and gooey. We used to eat monkey bread when I was younger and this was a quick version. Thanks for sharing. Read More
