Cranberry Sticky Buns

The aroma of fresh bread baking reminds me of my childhood and the wonderful cinnamon rolls Mom used to make. This recipe is a variation of those treats with the seasonal additions of cranberries.

  • Makes
    1-1/2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • TOPPING:
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine 2 cups flour and yeast. In a saucepan, heat sugar, butter, salt and milk to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Add eggs; beat on high for 3 minutes. Beat in remaining flour. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • In a saucepan, combine the first four topping ingredients; cook and stir over low heat until brown sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Stir in walnuts. Spread into two greased 9-in. square baking pans; set aside.
  • Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll each portion into an 18x6-in. rectangle; brush with butter. Combine filling ingredients; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut each roll into nine slices; place cut side down over topping and flatten slightly. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
