At Christmas time our family has many traditions and this one has been a favorite for many years. In 2003, Debbie was telling me about a tradition she had of making sticky buns and leaving them on her neighbor’s doorstep on Christmas Eve. We have borrowed her idea and continued the Farinella tradition in our house. Every Christmas Eve, the kids make a pan for our family to enjoy on Christmas morning and they also make another pan for our neighbors’. It is always fun for the kids to drop the goods on the doorstep, ring the doorbell, and RUN!
Our friends open their door and there are Christmas Morning Sticky Buns ready to rise on their counter. After so many years though, there is no more mystery as to who left them, just a fun tradition! This is also a great gift idea to bring to someone anytime of the year. Add a new tea towel, a Bundt® pan (can be a disposable one), printed cooking instructions and this makes a great gift! Easy, fun, and the kids can make the whole thing! Go ahead, borrow the tradition and Enjoy!
Combine the pudding mix, sugar, cinnamon, and nuts in a small bowl.
