Stickies Pastry


Preheat oven to 400º

Biscuit dough:
1 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 T. shortening
1/3 cup milk (a little more if needed)

Mix together dry ingredients in medium bowl. Cut in shortening. Add milk, mix just until dough is moistened, adding a bit more if too dry. Roll out into a thin rectangle, about 14X10 inches.

1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 T. cinnamon

·  Spread butter over dough. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll up like a jelly roll, then slice the dough into 1/2" thick slices. (Don't worry the melted butter may start to spill out)

·   Place cut rolls face up in a greased pie pan. 

·  Brush additional melted butter (2 tablespoons) to outside and tops of rolls so they brown evenly.

·   Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. 

·   Let sit for a few minutes--this will allow butter, sugar and milk to thicken around stickies. Serve warm for best flavor.
