Although I have given up bread until at least Christmas, I can still spoil my husband with these amazing sticky buns. This special treat follows a candlelit dinner I made last night, with Cranberry Brown Sugar Glazed Pork with Whipped Sweet Potatoes. Yes, I went all out! Recently, I’ve just realized that I don’t thank my husband enough for all he does for our little family, and for making it possible for me to stay home and raise Oliver. Super thankful and blessed!

The way to my husbands heart, is through sweet breads. Haha! But really, no joke. This recipe is amazing, and one I’ve kept with me since I made is in culinary school. I think this recipe would be great for Christmas morning/afternoon. It is so delicious and flaky. Best sticky bun recipe!
