My Mom has taken to pulling recipes out of anything she finds for me. Many of them come from an insert in our local newspaper, it is called Relish and can be accessed on line at Relish.com. We find many interesting and yummy recipes from this insert and on line. I have loved making sweet rolls and when Mom handed me this torn out recipes I was taken in. A sticky bun that doesn't take yeast but looks so very good. I had spent the day several weeks ago baking several batches of muffins for work and since I was in the kitchen I figured I should try them out. This recipe was quite simple and I wouldn't hesitate to make it again or play with the filling. It was really good and we had them finished by breakfast. They were definitely worth the try!!
