Sticky Bun Topping

  • ¾ cup (150g) brown sugar
  • ½ cup (1 stick, 113g) unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup (54.5g) coarsely chopped pecans


  • 2 tubes (8-count each) crescent rolls
  • ½ cup (1 stick, 113g) butter, softened
  • ½ cup (100g) brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Sticky Bun Topping

  • In a bowl, combine the melted butter and brown sugar. Pour it into the prepared baking dish, spreading it out evenly.
  • Top the butter and brown sugar with the chopped pecans.


  • Working on a clean work surface, roll out both tubes of dough. Combine the sheets of dough so that no seams are seen.
  • Spread the butter evenly over the dough.
  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix well.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the top of the dough.
  • Working on the long edge, roll the dough into a log. Slice into 12 equal-sized pieces. Nestle each piece into the sticky topping in the pan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Flip the baked rolls onto a large cookie sheet or sheet pan.
  • Serve warm.
