1 1/4 c. water
3 c. flour
2 T. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 T. butter (softened)
1 envelope active dry yeast

Sticky Sauce:
1/2 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1 c. broken pecan pieces

1/3 c. butter (softened)
1 T. cinnamon

Add all dough ingredients into a bread machine in the order listed above and blend on the manual cycle.

While dough is blending in the bread machine, prepare the sticky sauce by warming butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Pour sauce into a greased 9" x 13" pan and sprinkle with pecans. Set aside.

Once manual cycle is complete, punch down dough (it will be sticky) and roll into a 16" x 10" rectangle. Spread with softened butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll up jelly roll style and pinch seams together. Slice into 1 1/2" pieces and place on top of sticky sauce.

Cover with waxed paper and let rise until double in size (about one hour). Bake at 375 F for 20 - 25 minutes. Cool for only 2 or 3 minutes; invert pan onto serving platter so nuts and sticky sauce are on top. Pour some coffee and read the paper! Enjoy!!
