Hi lorenson 5294468 - If your dough was too thin, we would suggest adding a bit more flour to the mixture. Several different variables can affect mixtures when baking, so you may need to modify the recipe depending on your experience. -Editors of RecipeLion

My dough for this recipe was more like a batter. I ended up pouring it into the 9x9 pan, topping it with the remaining brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans and baking it at 350 F as for a coffee cake. Why was the "dough" so thin?

Hello mlhummy, I think there's just some simple confusion here. The melted butter, sugar and water that's set aside is just put aside temporarily. You then ADD that to your dry mix (flour, salt, baking soda, sugar) and mix together. Don't worry about anything left in the pan. You can spray the pan again with Pam if you want to ensure it doesn't stick. I think the confusion for you is with the topping. The topping is actually the remaining brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon. It was never that butter, sugar and water mixture. You sprinkle that brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon over the top to make the topping. Hopefully this helps, and sorry for the confusion. Thanks.

Hi. I guess I'm still not following. Step 2 says to add the first measure of brown sugar and the water to the melted butter that's in the pan. I thought this was the 'prepared pan' and what makes the caramel topping. The second measure of brown sugar gets mixed with the pecans and cinnamon in Step 5 and then rolled up in the dough in Step 6. So the butter/brown sugar/water mix is what gets poured out of the pan and into the dough in Step 3. Step 6 says to put cookies into prepared pan. Do you wash the pan and spray it with Pam or just leave the film of what was poured out? I feel really dumb here. Recipes usually aren't that confusing to me.

mlhummy: The butter should be poured into the dough. There is not a missing butter measurement. I believe all you need for the topping is the brown sugar, pecans and cinnamon. I hope this helps! Thanks! Blair, editor at

So you're saying to pour the melted butter mix out of the pan and into the dough?? Isn't this supposed to be in the pan for the caramel topping as the cookies bake? This is very confusing. Possibly there is another measure of butter in the ingredient list that was omitted. That would make more sense.

Hi there! Thanks for the questions -- both are very good points! 1. I would add the melted butter mixture after the milk (I will add this in to the recipe). I would roll the dough out as if it were a shortbread cookie (thin but not so thin that you can see through the dough or has holes). Try the recipe and let us know if there should be further modifications. Thanks!

This is somewhat frustrating. First, it does not tell you what to do with the melted butter mixture you've set aside. Second, it does not say how thin you should roll out the dough.
