Philadelphia Sticky Buns

Philadelphia Sticky Buns created by Rose M.

I've had this recipe clipped from a magazine forever. It's probably from a late 70's or 80's McCalls, I think. Anyway I'm putting it here for safekeeping. The sticky buns are a bit of work, but the end result is well worth the effort! Rising time is not included in prep time.

    This is a recipe that I've had in my collection of McCall's Cooking School recipe cards for many years. I've made these buns several times. I just hauled it out again last week to enter cinnamon buns in the county fair - I won second prize! This is a very easy recipe, nice light, airy bun with a great amount of flavour - the outside buns get crispy but the inside buns are very soft all the way around. They reheat well in the microwave. I usually sub pecans for raisins and occasionally frost with cream cheese frosting.
