Recipe of the Month

Sticky Bun Breakfast Ring

Okay, confession time.  I have a serious addiction.  I can't get enough of Pinterest!  I had been trying to ween myself off the computer and actually do something productive with my free time.  But now, thanks to my sister, I've discovered the wonderful world of seeing crafts and food that other people (want to) do.  So now I just spend hours looking at pictures of projects instead of actually doing them.  But tonight, no more!  I was browsing the many recipes people have posted and I wanted to actually try something.  Seriously, Pinterest makes me so hungry!  So I heated up the oven and made this Sticky Bun Breakfast Ring or "Ring of Delish." as I call it.  It took less than 30 minutes for this to get in my belly!  I honestly couldn't wait until morning to make this.  Like I said, totally addicted!  Oh, and here's another confession, I'm super lazy in the kitchen.  If there's a shortcut, I'm going to take it.  This is definitely my kind of recipe.  Preheat the oven at 375 and now here's what you'll need:

3 Tbls melted butter
1/4 cup maple syrup (I used my Mapeline syrup) but any will do

Mix these two together and set aside.  Now combine

1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, or walnuts)

Take a bundt pan and spray it down with cooking spray.  Then pour half of the syrup mixture around the bottom of the pan.  Then sprinkle half of the sugar mix around the pan as well.  Then here comes the shortcut:

2 tubes of refrigerator buttermilk biscuits

Take the biscuit dough rounds and line them up in a tight ring around the bundt with edges overlapping.  Pour the rest of the syrup and sugar on top.  Pop in the oven for 20 minutes or until brown on top and cooked all the way through.  Take it out and let it set for about a minute before inverting it on a large plate or platter.  Slice yourself a piece now because (like me!) you won't be able to wait until breakfast!
