Ingredients

  • Pecan Sauce
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 & 1/2 cups chopped pecans, toasted
  • Biscuits
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup very cold or frozen unsalted butter, cut into 16 pieces
  • 1 & 1/2 to 2 cups buttermilk
  • Topping
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

Directions

  • Pecan Sauce
  • Spray a 9″x 13″ pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place brown sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a saucepan. Cook over low heat. When butter is melted, increase heat to high and bring to a gentle boil. Cook 3-5 minutes, until thickened. Stir in pecans. Pour into pan and spread evenly. Set aside.
  • Biscuits
  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Sift together twice the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender. Blend until mixture mostly looks like coarse crumbs, with some of the butter the size of small peas.
  • Make a shallow well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour in 1 & 1/2 cups of buttermilk. Blend with a fork to form a soft dough. If dough is too dry, add the remaining 1/2 cup of buttermilk.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead a few times, then pat into a 3/4-inch thick rectangle. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 12 square biscuits.
  • Topping
  • Stir together sugar and cinnamon. Brush the tops of the biscuits with about half of the melted butter. Sprinkle with about half of the cinnamon-sugar.
  • Place the biscuits, cinnamon-sugar side down into the pan. Brush the tops (that were the bottoms) of the biscuits with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
  • Bake about 15-17 minutes. The biscuits should be golden brown and puffy, and the pecan sauce should be bubbling around the biscuits.
  • Cool slightly, then invert onto a serving plate. Remove pan to allow sauce to fall around the biscuits. Scrape any remaining sauce from the pan onto the biscuits. Serve immediately.
  • Make 12 biscuits.
