Super easy to make, the kiddos got purples at the county fair with these buns, also has a cinnamon roll version. Found this recipe on a 'easy to bake, easy to make' card.

I made these for the family's Valentines Day breakfast and let me say they go GREAT with your coffee! when I made my first dough ball it didn't rise double size but probably once in size. but when i put them over the hot water they blew up and in the oven more. they were definitely a family pleaser. :)

- 1 (2 1/2 ounce) package fast-rising active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup warm water (120*-130*F)
- 6 tablespoons soft butter, divided

Directions See How It's Made
- Grease a 13x9 baking pan and spread pecans and maple syrup evenly over the bottom.
- Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt in large bowl. Stir in water, 2 Tbsp butter and egg. Beat until smooth; gradually stir in remaining flour until soft dough forms. Place in greased bowl and cover with greased plastic wrap to prevent sticking; let rise until doubled, about 30 minute.
- On lightly floured surface, roll dough to 15x12 rectangle. Spread with remaining butter. Mix brown sugar with cinnamon; sprinkle over surface. Starting with a short side, roll up tightly.
- Cut into 12 slices; place cut side down in prepared pan. Cover with greased plastic wrap; place on wire rack set over stove while oven preheats to 375*F. Let rise until buns double, 30-45 minutes. Uncover buns and bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Cool for 1 minute. Loosen edges; invert onto serving plate, serve warm.
- For cinnamon rolls, omit syrup and pecans; glaze with a mixture of 1 1/2 c powdered sugar, 2-3 Tbsp milk and 1 tsp vanilla.
