caramel apple butter pecan “star bread”

EJ-nutsWere I to live a thousand years I’d never be able to try out all my Pinterest pins!  But this month with our Improv Cooking Challenge ingredients being Nuts & Caramel, I was able to knock out three of them!EJ-nuts

The recipe for the slow cooker caramel apple butter I slightly adapted from here. The sweet roll dough recipe I’ve had for years, but you can find a good one here. And finally, the inspiration for the “star bread” was from this pin. EJ-nutsOHMYGOODNESS! This stuff tastes soooooooooooooo good!EJ-nuts

I love this dough – it’s so easy to work with…EJ-nuts

Unfortunately, I had to leave unexpectedly & the bread ended up raising for almost two hours! It overpowered my baking stone. Fortunately the parchment bore the brunt of the mess.20161107_061247
