Pumpkin Butter Sticky Buns

Pumpkin Butter Sticky Buns


Makes about 8 buns 

1 sheet puff pastry

1/4 cup pumpkin butter (I used Trader Joe's brand)

1 tablespoon cinnamon chips (optional)

1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1/4 cup brown sugar, lightly packed

1/2 tablespoon Earth balance or butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Unfold thawed puff pastry dough and roll into an approximately 12 x 10" rectangle. Spread pumpkin butter over the dough, leaving a 1" border on the long sides. Sprinkle with cinnamon chips - be more liberal if you like! Roll up, lengthwise. Cut crosswise into 8 pieces.

Divide the walnuts, brown sugar, and butter between 8 muffin cups in a muffin tin. Place the dough rolls on top. Bake 25-30 minutes until puffed and completely cooked through. Cook these a few minutes longer than you think they need, or the center will not be cooked enough. Let cook 5 minutes and then remove from muffin tin. Serve warm.
