Sticky Buns

Sticky Buns
  • 1 ½ C flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ¼ C shortening
  • ½ C milk
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ¼ C margarine
  • 2 Tbsp water
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles course meal. Add milk then knead 10-15 times. Roll out to ½ inch thick and cut with drinking glass.

Combine brown sugar, margarine, and water in round microwavable pan. Microwave for ½ - 1 minute or until margarine melts.

Leave mixture in pan and stir. Place biscuits on top of mixtures. Cook in microwave at 70% (important!! They WILL burn at 100%) for 4-5 minutes. Let set for 2 minutes.

*Also good to do is roll out dough thinly and sprinkle cinnamon and put slice almonds and/or raisons (any nut, dried fruit, or seasoning would work). Roll into a log and then slice so they are more like cinnamon rolls.

We are going to need a bit of a translation on these instructions. Our microwave isn't that fancy. What does "70%" mean on your average microwave that only does cook time?

I don't know if your microwave has this, but on mine I can set the power level. 70% would be the same as 7 which would also be about medium-high on others. (Defrost is usually a power level of 2 or 3). Hope this helps.
