Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Dessert #Bread: PHILADELPHIA STICKY BUNS from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is PHILADELPHIA STICKY BUNS!

A good sticky bun is hard to beat, which is a good thing because this recipe does take a bit of prep. So worth it though! If you want to impress your family or the book club, give this sticky bun a try. Just plan ahead of time so it’s coming out of the oven warm and sticky and ready to eat.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
