Cook Time 15 minutes
Course Breakfast, Dessert
Servings 6


  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pistachios
  • 1 package 6 rolls Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt 1/2 cup butter. Add heavy cream, brown sugar, salt, and chopped pistachios. Stir until the mixture comes to a boil, ensuring all sugar dissolves (1-2 minutes).
  • Turn off the heat once the mixture boils, and continue stirring until it stops bubbling.
  • Pour the caramel mixture into the bottom of your baking dish.
  • Slice the Hawaiian sweet rolls down the center without cutting all the way through and set them aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until well mixed.
  • Spread the ricotta mixture inside the sliced sweet rolls.
  • Place the filled rolls face down into the caramel mixture in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the rolls turn golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let them rest for about 5 minutes (avoid waiting longer).
  • Carefully invert the rolls onto a large serving platter placed over the baking dish.
  • Be cautious as the caramel is still hot. Enjoy your warm and delicious Sticky Buns!
