The Rosie Show Sticky Buns

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by LuuvBunny

I got this recipe from the Rosie O'Donnell Show when it was on the air. I've had the recipe for a few years but am just now getting around to making them and I'm glad I did! They are fantastic. I wasn't sure how the dough would turn out because when I was kneading it the butter did not seem to incorporate very well. I think I may melt the butter next time I make these. Anyway, the dough turned out fine after all. These are very tasty and sticky!
