You begin by making these sticky buns with store-bought crescent rolls.


  • 1/4 cup butter, plus more for greasing the pan

  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts, such as pecans, walnuts, or hazelnuts

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

  • 1 (8-ounce) can crescent rolls

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
