Caramel Pecan Biscuits

Sticky buns or rolls are a perennial favorite in our household…but they take so long to make! It is no fun at all to have to wake up hours before your family or guests just to make breakfast! This recipe has the same great flavor of sticky buns…but is made in a fraction of the time.

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
3 cups self rising flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and heavily grease a 13 X 9 inch pan. Combine the brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a small heavy pan. Cook over medium heat until the mixture is melted and smooth, stirring constantly. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and sprinkle with the pecans. In a large bowl whisk together the flour and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl or measuring cup mix the milk and vanilla together. Pour over the flour mixture and blend just until the ingredients are moistened. Over mixing will cause the biscuits to toughen. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead lightly 4 times. Over kneading will also cause the dough to toughen, so just knead gently. Pat the dough out to a circle that is about 3/4 inch thick. Cut out 18 biscuits with a 2 inch cutter. Carefully arrange the biscuits over the caramel mixture in the pan. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let sit in the pan for about 5 minutes. Invert onto a large platter or baking sheet. Cut and serve hot, or serve at room temperature.

Makes 18 biscuits.
