Maple Pecan Sticky Buns

This is the time of year those of us who have home-made maple syrup are looking for new things to try. It's getting close enough to the sugaring season that we're willing to use a jar on a new recipe.

Here's one for Maple Pecan Sticky Buns from Maple Syrup World:

Yields 12 sticky buns

For the sticky part:
10 Tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup

For the buns:
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 400° F.

Cream the "sticky part" ingredients together; divide evenly into 12 muffin tin cups.

On a lightly floured surface, unfold the puff pastry, with folds going left to right. In a small bowl, combine butter and maple syrup. With a pastry brush, brush mixture onto puff pastry, leave a small 1/2 inch border all the way around. Evenly sprinkle on brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. From the bottom up, gently roll up the puff pastry. Slice into 12 small rolls.

Place one roll into each muffin cup, on top of the butter mixture. Bake for 30 minutes, until browned. Allow to cool for a few minutes and then invent sticky buns onto the parchment paper.

Allow to cool for an additional 10 minutes.
