Sticky Fingers

As a mother that does not live around family or friends nearby, things can get really creative around my house when my husband and kids get a sweet tooth craving because my mother and grandma are the bakers in my family.

Since we can't just jump in the car for a visit, I've had to play with my food a little bit.

This is one of my success stories, very simple, warm, cozy -- sweet desserts I want to share with my fellow sweet-toothed friends out there.

Warning! Very sticky fingers and happiness are definite side effects!


Tools:

1 Bundt Pan


Ingredients:

2 to 3 cans of biscuits (small preferably)

3 sticks of butter (must be butter)

cinnamon

sugar

2 cups of halved pecans or walnuts

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Take ½ stick of softened butter and grease the entire inside of the Bundt pan with it.

Open biscuits and cut each one into quarters.

Mix butter, cinnamon, and sugar to your taste. The mixture should be the consistency of gravy.

Put a layer of nuts in the pan first. Next, pour in a first layer of cinnamon mixture, then throw in a layer of quartered biscuits.

Drizzle another round of cinnamon/sugar sauce, and another layer of nuts. Repeat the layers till you have 2-3 layers in the pan. Cover the last layers with nuts and sauce mix. Now put in the oven for 13-15 minutes at 375 degrees.

When finished, let stand for just enough time to grab a plate to flip it onto and immediately begin pulling apart this ooey-gooey, sweet, sticky, warm and delicious satisfaction.

P.S. You will need lots of napkins – and be patient when no one uses the napkins but instead licks every last bit of sticky goodness off their fingers.

I hope you enjoy this experimental success the way we have now for years.

Bon Appetit!
