Sticky Buns II
I made these initially as a Christmas gift for my boss and told her I'd never make them again - I'm not one for rolling dough. But they were far too good, so a couple days later I made another batch. I would call them more like cinnamon rolls than sticky buns, which doesn't matter to me because they are so good. The only problems I had with the first batch was I didn't use a muffin tin, but a 9x9 pan and the buns fell apart too easily. The first batch also seemed to be a little under done at the 25 minute time, so I extended it two minutes for the second batch. They came out perfect! I used a muffin tin the second time and they were perfectly shaped, plus it seemed less messy to clean up. The key thing for this recipe is flour - when kneading add flour, and be sure you have flour on your rolling surface, hands, and rolling pin. I have never altered the amount of milk added like some other reviewers, I just add enough flour to make the dough more dough-like and less sticky. These disappear quickly in my house, even with people who traditional "claim" they don't like sticky buns/cinnamon rolls. I also definitely recommend eating them right after they cool down from baking since they seem to taste the best right then. I made them once with pecans and a vanilla icing - extremely good and more like a sticky bun. If I didn't hate all the flour mess I get when making these, I would have some in the house everyday.

Nana's Apple Crisp
Very, VERY good! I took another reviewer’s advice and put the second tablespoon of cinnamon directly on the apples, but I don’t think it would really matter. I also sprinkled extra cinnamon on top because I like a lot of cinnamon with my apple desserts. The first time I made this I used golden delicious apples since they were the ones I had in the refrigerator and like the best. I used more than the called for 6 apples since they were a little small. The second time I used Granny Smith apples. It wasn’t quite as good as the first batch, but only because the apples are a little more tart. Still, it was excellent. Great with a cold glass of milk.
