Day 231: Coconut Sticky Buns

Yield: 6-8 buns
Time (Start to Finish): 1 hour

1 sheet puff pastry dough
1 cup coconut milk (not water)
2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup shredded coconut

1 cup powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2. Take out the puff pastry, make sure it has been defrosted and place flat on a table
3. In a bowl, mix coconut with about ¼-1/2 cup of the coconut milk and the sugar and mix until it is soaked in and sticky. You can add more milk if it is not sticky enough
4. Spread on the dough to almost the edges, leaving a little boarder, and about 1 inch on one end
5. Put a little coconut milk on the end that does not have the mixture on it…this will be the end when you roll it
6. Roll the dough to make a spiral log and press the end down to seal it a little
7. With a sharp knife, slice the dough into 6-8 pieces, depending, and place on a cookie sheet with about 2 inches on either side
8. Bake until they begin to brown but are just a little undone in the middle, about 15-20 min
9. In a bowl, sift the powdered sugar
10. Add a little vanilla if you want, and then coconut milk in order to make a frosting you can drizzle.
11. When the buns are out and cooling, drizzle with the coconut frosting and serve

Notes: Sorry Sarah! She hates coconut, but these were SO good! They were sticky, filled with flavor, and a stomach filler! I totally impressed the house with these! Make sure to grease the pan a little, mine stuck to the bottom, and really try not to over stuff when you fill them, and roll them loosely, but tight enough so it stays together when you slice it. They are fast to make, I made them before anyone woke up, and a nice treat when you have guests in the house! Thanks for enjoying these! One was left on the counter and I got to late night enjoy it…it is also good for that!
