Inexpensive Sticky Buns Recipe!

As a child my husband's grandmother always made her version of sticky buns on Christmas morning. In honor of her and my husband's tradition I have decided to carry it into our family. I got the recipe yesterday and just had to share this way to easy inexpensive recipe with you!

Sticky Buns: Serves 3-4
  • 1/3 C. brown sugar (1 bag costs .99 at Aldi so I will guess on the high side that 1/3c. costs roughly .15 cents)
  • 3 tbsp. butter (use margarine to make this cheaper, 1 stick costs maybe .15 cents so 3 tbsp. is roughly .05 cents)
  • 1/3 c. chopped pecans (1 1/2 c. bag=2.50 at Aldi so 1/3 c. costs around .65 cents)
  • 1tbsp. water (maybe a pennie?:)
  • 1 can of SMALL refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (.33 cents at Aldi)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (pennies)
In a microwaveable bunt pan (or round pan with something in the middle to create a bunt pan) combine brown sugar, water and butter. Microwave uncovered for 1 minute or until melted. Stir in nuts and cinnamon. Cut each biscuit into quarters and add to mixture- try to coat them all evenly. Microwave uncovered for 2 1/2 minutes or until biscuits are no longer doughy. Let it stand 2 minutes and then turn over onto a round plate and serve.

All together this delicious Christmas morning breakfast will cost about $1.15 to make or .28 cents to .38 cents a serving!
