Needless to say this is not a low-calorie dish, but absolutely delicious, and definitely a family favorite for all ages. Try it!

“Coconut-honey Sticky Buns”

1 loaf frozen bread dough (thawed)

4 ounces cream cheese (soft)

1/2 cup flaked coconut

3 tablespoon orange juice

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup honey

Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Roll the dough into an 8x10 rectangle.

In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, coconut and orange juice.

Spread mixture on dough and roll up like a jelly roll (starting from long side). Cut dough into slices (approx. 1/2 inch), place into baking dish, cover with cling wrap for 1 hour to let dough rise.

In a saucepan melt butter, and mix with honey until well blended. Spoon 1 tablespoon of honey-butter mix over each bun. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 30-35 minutes. When removing from oven, invert buns onto a serving plate and top with toasted coconut.
