Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour, for work surface
  • 1 recipe Quick Basic Pizza Dough, or 2 pounds store-bought pizza dough, thawed if frozen
  • 1 cup plus 6 tablespoons unsalted butter (2 3/4 sticks), room temperature
  • 1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

Cook's Note

Folding butter into the dough creates a flaky, rich result. This recipe works well with store-bought dough, but it's exceptional with homemade.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    On a floured work surface, roll dough to a 10-by-18-inch rectangle. Dot upper two-thirds of dough with 1 cup butter and fold dough like a letter. Roll dough to a 10-by-18-inch rectangle. Refrigerate on a baking sheet until firm, 1 hour (or up to 1 day).

  2. Step 2

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine sugar, pecans, and salt. Leaving a 1/2-inch border, dot dough with 6 tablespoons butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture. Starting at a long end, roll up dough like a jelly roll. Cut crosswise into 12 pieces. Place each piece, cut side down, into two jumbo muffin pans or a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

  3. Step 3

    Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes, rotating pans halfway through. Immediately invert buns onto a serving platter or baking sheet. Serve warm.

    Delicious! Have made this twice, had leftover pizza dough both times and I have been so pleased. The second time I used a hefty dose of cinnamon.. great results. Shoot, forgot the raisins though!

    I"m crazy about this recipe...here's one thing that's super important. Make sure the butter is room temp...it's a totally different picture if it isn't...I've made these a couple of times and made the mistake of using cold butter, thinking "hey it's pastry"...but I was wrong and it didin't work...enjoy!

    I made this recipes this morning and it was the worst mess. I followed the entire thing to the letter and I didn;t have glaze like the picture and it wasn't sweet at all. As a matter of fact it didn't taste good at all
