Cranberry-Pistachio Sticky Buns Recipe

Cranberry-Pistachio Sticky Buns Recipe

Looking for a fantastic brunch item? Then try these ooey-gooey good sticky buns. They use frozen yeast roll dough and couldn't be simpler to make. The buns rise overnight in the refrigerator, so you just need to bake them the next morning.—Athena Russell, Florence, South Carolina
