Apple-Pecan Sticky Buns

Apple-Pecan Sticky Buns
" MMMMM....I put it in my mouth and I like it." Caeden Connell

2 tart apples, such as granny smith-peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 cup chopped pecans
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 stick  butter
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbs honey
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

I bought pre-made crescent dough instead of taking the time to roll homemade dough.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Grease 9 inch square baking pan
Place the apples, 1 tbs brown sugar, and 1 tbs butter on a parchment paper lined baking sheet; toss to coat. cover loosely with foil and roast until tender, 15 minutes.
After, Lower the temp to 350
In a small bowl, mix 1/2 cup brown sugar, pecans, and cinnamon
Roll out your dough
Cut up 2 tbs of butter and dot the rolled out dough.  
Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top and cover evenly with the roasted apples.
Roll up the dough, jelly roll-style, and cut crosswise into 9 slices;
 place the slices cut side down in the prepared baking pan.  
Bake until golden, 35-40 minutes

Meanwhile in a saucepan,
 bring 4 tbs butter, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup heavy cream,
 1/2 tsp salt and honey to a boil, stirring.
Whisk until reduced, about 2 minutes.
Let cool slightly 
Drizzle the sauce over the warm buns.
