Sticky Buns 

For the dough: 
3 large eggs 
1/3 c. brown sugar 
3/4 c. buttermilk (or 3/4 c milk with 1 t. vinegar) 
1 t. salt
2 t. instant yeast 
6 T. unsalted butter, melted 
4 c. flour

For the filling:
1 c. brown sugar
2 T. cinnamon
3 T. butter, melted

For the topping:
8 oz jar of caramel (recommended: Pecan Pie, Bourbon Pecan, Salted or Maple Bourbon)

Instructions:
1. Make the dough: mix together eggs, brown sugar, buttermilk, salt, yeast and butter until well combined. Add flour and stir with wooden spoon until a ball forms. 
2. Turn the dough out on a floured surface and knead for 2 minutes until smooth and silky. Return to bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise at room temperature until doubled in size (about 2 hours).
3. Make the filling: Combine sugar and cinnamon in bowl and set aside.
4. Roll out the dough on floured surface. Shape into a rectangle approximately 16 inches by 12 inches.
5. Brush with melted butter, leaving approximately 1 inch around the edges and top with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll the short end of the dough, keeping the dough tight. Pinch the edges closed, with the seam side down. 
6. Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into 12 even pieces (cut in half, then halves again and then thirds). Place the rolls in a greased 13x9 inch pan with the swirled pattern facing up. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until about double in size, approximately 2 hours or overnight. 
7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until rolls are golden brown. Allow to rest for 5 minutes and then invert the buns onto a serving platter, scraping the excess goo from the dish and covering the rolls. 
8. Heat caramel sauce in microwave for approximately 15-30 seconds and stir well. Drizzle over buns. Enjoy!
