Sticky Cinnamon Pecan Scrolls

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Hope your day will be filled with surprises and sweet gestures. :)

To kick start this day, I thought something sweet will be appropriate.Years and years ago, there was a bakery in Singapore that specializes in baked scrolls. I can't even remember the name of it. What I did remember was the lovely sweet scent spilling out of the tiny shop in a shopping center near my parents' apartment. Alas, the bakery closed its door not long after, perhaps reflecting how fickle-minded Asians' tastebuds were at that time.

When I was learning how to bake, I thought to myself that scrolls were way too hard. 'Too many steps, too much work, too many ingredients, too fattening, no one to share with me, too sweet' were just some of my excuses. Yes, I can be a whiner at times.

Imagine my surprise when I noticed this fabulous recipe that Jaden shared with her readers. Sticky Pecan Cinnamon Scroll is a winner. It was easy and a definite crowd pleaser. Do you remember my Hazelnut Nutella Challah? The cinnamon scroll was based on the master dough recipe.

I love the nutty sweet scent coming out of the oven. I squealed in delight when I removed it from the oven and it turned out to be a sweet gem. In total, the master dough yielded 1 hazelnut nutella challah and 2 batches of Sticky Pecan Cinnamon Scroll. I brought the 2nd batch to a friend's place and I received positive feedback throughout the evening. It was certainly a big boost to my self-esteem. LOL.

I'm not going to be posting the recipe since Jaden did lovely step by step instructions. However, I did make a few changes and that includes increasing the amount of pecan nuts and reducing the sugar a wee bit.

I can't help being trigger happy. Look at how photogenic these buns are!

And before I go, it's fitting to thank Little Corner for giving me this Forever Friends Award. Valentine's Day is a day to spread the word that you care for someone
