QUICK STICKY BUNS by Kitchen Kneads
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tbsp. Cinnamon
6 tbsp. melted butter (don’t substitute)
Topping: 1/4 cup Butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 6 tbsp. corn syrup
6 cups flour
2 tbsp. yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 cup softened butter
1 3/4 cup hot tap water
Mix sugar and cinnamon of filling and set aside. Mix yeast with 1/4 cup warm water and some of the sugar. Set aside to dissolve. Mix remaining sugar with 3 cups flour and salt. Add softened butter and hot water. Mix well. Add egg and yeast mixture and beat for three minutes. Add rest of flour and beat for 2 minutes at medium speed. Dough should be well mixed. Add a few tablespoons of additional flour if dough is too sticky. Knead by hand for a minute. Cut dough in half.
With each piece, roll dough into 16x12 inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter (leaving one long end unbuttered). Sprinkle with sugar filling (leaving one long end un-sugared). Along long side, begin rolling in a spiral. Pinch so it won’t come unrolled. Cut into 2 1/2 inch pieces. Place cut side up into greased 9x13 inch pan (staggered). Cover with clean dishcloth and let rise for 20-30 minutes. While preheating oven, place cookie sheet inside. Then place buns directly on the cookie sheet. The extra heat will help them to rise fast. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes until well browned; when pressed on side, it is firm. Remove from pan and place on tray.
Make topping by melting butter. Add brown sugar and corn syrup and heat until barely boiling. Pour over buns.
Scald milk. Stir in sugar, salt and butter. Cool to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in warm water, then add milk mixture, eggs and 2 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough flour to make soft dough.

A man inserted an ‘ad’ in the classifieds: “Wife wanted”. Next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: “You can have mine.”
