  1. Cream 1/3 cup butter or margarine and brown sugar together in a small bowl.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together flour, white sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in 1/4 cup butter or margarine until crumbly. Make a well in center, and pour in milk. Stir to make a soft dough.
  3. Knead dough 8 to 10 times. Pat or roll out on a lightly floured surface to a 9 or 10 inch square. Spread with brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle with nuts. Roll up as for jelly roll, and pinch edge to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Place into a greased 8 inch square pan.
  4. Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 15 to 20 minutes. Invert over tray while hot, and serve.

this recipe was a waste of time. the ingredients' proportions were all wrong and it turned out like sugar soup with a blob of jelly-like "dough" plopped in the middle. i was so frustrated doing the terrible recipe.

This is absolutely amazing and so easy! It's almost sinful to get such great tasting buns without the added effort of yeast and rising time. Instead of walnuts, I used Skor toffee bits and added a simple glaze to the top when still warm. We couldn't keep our hands off of them. Whoever made these before and said they were a globby mess probably didn't bake them long enough or they prefer the hard rolls. These are definitely the gooiest! Wonderful!!

Very delicious and easy! ..... overall the dough came out perfect,a little salty, and the texture was great. I put each bun into an individual cupcake pan with melted butter on the bottom...... this came out wonderfully, added with a scoop of Ice cream on top! Everyone enjoyed it. I will be making this again,for sure!

Very easy and delicious. The only thing I would change is cutting back a little on the salt. They had a salty aftertaste.

Tasted like a dry, bland biscuit with sugar on it.

This recipe is a bit inaccurate. I followed it exactly and wound up with a batter instead of a dough. I added nearly a cup of flour extra and it still wasn't enough. I would recommend using 3 cups flour, plus extra to make the dough workable as necessary, before kneading and rolling out.
