Warning…there is nothing healthy about these sticky buns. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I don’t drink that much. Well, I may have an occasional cocktail here and there and I have bottles of wine and liquor in my house that I use for cooking 90% of the time. In any case, I don’t drink that often. Especially not dark liquor. Gross! If you ever hear or see me shooting Jack or Makers Mark, then I have hit rock bottom somewhere in my life and I am simply trying to get drunk. Personally, I am a Vodka chick. My favorite drink is Grey Goose and cranberry juice. Simple, classy, and subtle in taste and appearance but will create room for you to have a good time. Kind of like me. Well, minus the good time part. I mean, I’m not boring. I’m pretty fun to hang out with. I just mean…..oh forget it. Let’s get back to these sticky buns.
Although I do not enjoy drinking straight bourbon, I do enjoy baking and cooking with it. You ever notice how sweet, deep, and woodsey it smells? Yea I know it doesn’t smell great. In fact, it might make you gag and burn your nose hairs a bit, but if you get past that it smells really good. If you use it in baked goods, like these sticky buns, it gives a nice depth of flavor and even compliments the brown sugar and pecans. As you look at the list of ingredients, you can tell that there is nothing remotely healthy about these buns. In fact, these buns may stick to the ones you already have. But they are so worth it.
