Grandma Dyck


2 pkg yeast
tsp sugar
cup warm water
4 5 cups flour
cup sugar
1 tsp salt
cup milk
cup water
cup margarine or butter
2 eggs (at room temp)

cup butter or margarine
1⅓ cups brown sugar
2 tbsp corn syrup
1 cups chopped pecans

Cinnamon mixture:
cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

Dissolve sugar in warm water, sprinkle yeast over top. Let stand about 10 min. until foamy.

Combine milk, water, butter in a saucepan. Heat over low heat until warm and butter is almost melted. Cool to lukewarm. Beat eggs slightly, add to milk mixture. Put in large bowl. Add about 1 cup of flour, sugar, salt and yeast mixture. Beat well for a few minutes. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough. Turn onto lightly floured board. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 6 minutes. Place in greased bowl, grease top of dough. Cover, let rise in warm place for about 1 hour until doubled. Punch down and divide into two equal parts.

While dough is rising prepare two cookie sheets about 15 X 10. Melt cup butter or margarine in saucepan. Add 1⅓ cups brown sugar and 2 tbsp corn syrup. Bring to a boil and immediately pour into pans, spreading it around. Sprinkle with 1 cups chopped pecans. Roll out the dough into a 12 inch square. Brush with melted butter. Combine cup brown sugar with 2 tsp cinnamon. Sprinkle of the mixture over the middle third of the square of dough. Fold one side of dough over the centre third. Sprinkle with another of cinnamon mixture. Fold remaining third of dough over top. Cut into twelve 1-inch pieces.

Hold the end of each strip, twist in opposite direction twice. Seal ends firmly. Place in 1 prepared pan. Repeat with remaining half of dough. Cover, let rise in warm place until doubled, about to 1 hour. Bake at 400 for about 15 min. or until done. Invert onto plates or wire racks to cool. Scrape sauce left in pans and put on the bottom of the buns.
