While writing this post though I could not locate the recipe on their website-frustrating-as I wanted to use the photo from the mag. It also has a side note that says I can find a video for this recipe using my iPad-I couldn't find that either. Once I make them I'll share my own photo. For now, enjoy...
Walnut-Chocolate Sticky Buns
(I'm going to make a double batch, of course)
2/3 cup heavy cream, divided
1 1/3 plus 2 T. packed light-brown sugar, divided
1 packet (1/4 oz) active dry yeast
2 1/4 cups unbleached (spooned and leveled), divided,
plus more for work surface
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature, divided, plus m ore for bowl and pan
1 large egg
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts (I think pecans would be great also)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1. Heat 1/3 cup each cream and water and 2 T. sugar until liquid registers 110* - 115*. Add yeast. Let sit until foamy (my favorite part), 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and add 1 cup flour. Using mixer, beat on medium to smooth. Melt 2 T. butter; add to bowl, along with 1 tsp salt and egg, and beat until combined. Beat in remaining 1 1/4 cups flour until combined. Transfer to a buttered bowl; cover with plastic top. Let sit in a warm place until doubled, 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 350*. Butter a 9-inch round baking pan (2 inches deep). In a pot, bring 3 T. butter, 2/3 cup sugar, 1 T. water, and 1/2 tsp salt to a simmer over medium. Cook until sugar is dissolved; whisk in remaining 1/3 cup cream. Pour into pan.
3. On a floured surface, stretch or roll dough into a 12 x 18-inch rectangle. Spread remaining 3 T. butter on dough, leaving a 1-in border on long sides. Sprinkle with remaining 2/3 cup sugar, nuts, chocolate chips, and 1/4 tsp salt. Starting with one long side, roll dough into a log. Cut crosswise into 9 pieces. Arrange over sauce. Bake until sauce is bubbling and rolls are golden, 30-35 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes. Run a knife around edge before inverting onto a platter. Serve warm.
