Toasting Walnuts: In large, dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast walnuts, stirring occasionally, until lightly brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
In small saucepan, melt 3/4 cup (175 mL) butter with 3/4 cup (175 mL) sugar over medium heat. Pour into greased 13 x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the walnuts; set aside.
Stir together remaining butter, sugar, walnuts, cinnamon and orange zest.
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to make a 18 x 12-inch (45 x 30 cm) rectangle. Sprinkle with walnut mixture. Starting at long side, tightly roll up, pinching seam to seal. With serrated knife, cut into 15 pieces; place cut side down in prepared dish. Cover and let rise 15 minutes.
Bake in the centre of a 375°F (190°C) oven for 25 minutes or until golden and tops sound hollow when tapped. Let stand 5 minutes before serving and invert onto platter to serve.
Makes 15 buns.
Variation: Festive Sticky Buns - Add 1/2 cup (125 mL) dried cranberries to the walnut mixture. Arrange buns into the shape of a tree for a fun festive holiday brunch.
