Pecan Honey Stickey Buns
Today's Tuesdays with Dorie selection is from Madam Chow!

This recipe uses 1/2 a brioche dough. Because a batch uses three sticks of butter...Brioche is simply a butter-delivery device! The butter took forever to mix in and I felt my dough wasn't as smooth or satiny as it should be. I've never used the dough hook before on the KitchenAid and was lucky to find it!

This recipe was a labor. Not necessarily a labor of love, but a labor. It was my fault because I didn't start earlier in the weekend...I was up til close to midnight with the dough, and then up at 4:00 am so I can shape the dough and let it rise before baking. Bad timing on my part...

These look wonderful! I had some second thoughts about all that butter, but then I got over it!

I just love seeing photos of the process, the rulers and measuring tapes, random bits of flour and sugar, baking sheets covered with Silpat or sheets of baking paper, it's great to see how my fellow bakers work.

Your buns look fabulous, btw, your pictures are excellent!
