I was given the Kreativ Blogger Award! Overnight Sticky Buns
Jacey over at One Man's Trash is My Treasure gave me an award! It is the Kreativ Blogger Award. I love the comment she gave about my blog! Here's what she said - "I never knew it was possible to gain 10 lbs just by reading a blog...but this girl makes it possible! Her blog looks so yummy I'm surprised my computer screen doesn't have bite marks in it ha ha! Go check out her yummy recipes!"

"7 Things You Never Knew and Probably Never Even Considered Wanting To Know" about me.
1. I have this insane desire to run up mountain trails, even in the snow and rain. I've found it's my favorite way to start the day.
2. I'm a morning person. I don't like to stay up real late, I'd rather get up at 4:30 in the morning and get things done.
3. I'm like Jacey, I never watch anything that's not recorded on my DVR, I hate commercials too.
4. I just had a toenail fall off from running a marathon in August. It's o.k. though, because the new one has already grown in under it.
5. I actually like loading and unloading my dishwasher. I never use to, it's a new thing for me.
6. I lost over 200 pounds a few years ago by diet and exercise.
7. I'm afraid of heights, and things moving under my feet, like roller skates, and skateboards.

I found this recipe in a Country Woman's Christmas Book and decided to give it a try. I've made lots of cinnamon rolls, but I've never made sticky buns. I love this recipe, because you do all the work the day or night before, then just let them rise for 30 minutes in the morning, and bake them for 20-25 minutes. They turned out wonderful with a great gooey caramel on the bottom.
Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway, it ends tomorrow at 3pm. You can find the rules here!
There's a great contest at Just for Me and You for a gift certificate to Tabeez!
Overnight Sticky Buns
5 1/2 to 6 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon cinnamon
In a mixer fitted with a bread hook, combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, yeast and salt. In a saucepan, heat milk, water and 3 tablespoons butter to 120-130 degrees. Add to the flour mixture. Beat on low speed for 2 minutes; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Kneed for 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the 1/2 cup butter, brown sugar and corn syrup. Cook and stir over medium low heat until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Pour into two 9x13 pans that have been greased.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Punch dough down. Divide in half. Roll each half out on a floured surface to within 1/2 inch thick. Spread with 1/4 cup of melted butter and half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll up like a jellyroll and cut with dental floss. Place in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator overnight.
Next morning, remove rolls from the refrigerator and let rise for 30-45 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees 20-25 minutes. Invert rolls onto a serving platter.
