Ok so this recipe is divine but the ratios are totally off. Add at least 1/4 cup of flour if your dough is very sticky, and if it’s still very sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time until the dough has a biscuit dough texture, otherwise you can’t shape it, roll it, or do anything with it. Also about a teaspoon of melted butter per muffin cup is needed and just enough maple syrup that covers the bottom of each muffin cup (less than a teaspoon each). I also brushed the tops of my pinwheels with butter so they didn’t burn, and I’d recommend you reduce the time your nuts are toasting in the oven by 1-2 minutes. After making all of these modifications, I had absolutely beautiful sticky rolls.
I should have known something was wrong. So it had 2300+ 5-Star reviews and only three written reviews?! I do not usually bother taking the time to praise or condemn and online it’s, but this recipe is total garbage. The dough never actually becomes workable. It’s a sticky mess that’s impossible to work. I was determined to continue and it simply kept getting worse. I eventually slopped the goo into the oven and it simply did not cook. I’m embarrassed to admit I wasted the time, energy and ingredients only to just throw it in the trash the next day. PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND MOVE TO THE NEXT RECIPE.
There is something wrong with this recipe. The dough is a sticky and just cannot be rolled, never mind cut into spirals. By far the biggest mess I have EVER made in the kitchen!
The first review is useless. I too want to make this recipe, and I am happy to use cups for flour. I’ll come back and rate it when I’ve made it.
