I make it no secret that I prefer sweet potato to pumpkin in most things. However, these Pumpkin Butter Sticky Buns get a big fat stamp of approval. I use my super fluffy Sweet Roll Dough and slather it with a mountain of delicious 10-Minute Pumpkin Butter. The rolls are baked in gooey sweet topping with a load of whole pecans.

Sweet roll dough– Crescent roll dough could work as a shortcut to making the dough from scratch. Otherwise, find the dough HERE.
Pumpkin butter– Store-bought pumpkin butter works just as well but if you want the best experience with these rolls, give my 10-Minute Pumpkin Butter a try.

Salted butter
Cinnamon
Salt
Dark corn syrup
Honey
Water
Whole pecans– I like the look of whole pecans when the rolls are turned out but halved or chopped pecans are just fine.

Pecan sticky topping variations

Sticky topping can be made with honey, maple syrup, or corn syrup. This sticky bun topping is made with dark corn syrup and honey. You can exchange the corn syrup for more honey or switch both to maple syrup.

These sticky buns are perfect just as they are but a scoop of vanilla or coffee ice cream would be sensational!
