I adapted the recipe from allrecipes.com
Carmel Apple Sticky Buns
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 cups finely chopped peeled apple
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, cubed
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (you can also use chopped apple in place of the nuts)
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon corn syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla (stirred in after the topping is removed from heat)
In a large mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt, and cinnamon. In a saucepan, heat the milk, water and butter to 120 degrees F to 130 degrees F. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour and apples. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile in a saucepan, combine the topping ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring until blended. Stir in vanilla after removing pan from heat. Pour into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish. Stir dough down. Spoon walnut-size pieces of dough over nut mixture. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 1 minute before inverting onto a large serving platter.
