Combine yeast, 1 teaspoon of sugar and ½ cup warm water in a bowl until foamy, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, bring milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat; set aside for 5 minutes.


Into the milk stir the remaining sugar, 4 tablespoons butter and the salt.


Add the yeast mixture to a large mixing bowl and stir in the milk mixture, the vanilla, 2 eggs, and the flour just until combined.


Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 3 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let sit in a warm place until dough doubles in size about 1½ hours.


Heat oven to 375° F. Melt remaining butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir in brown sugar until smooth. Pour into a buttered 9" x 13" baking dish and sprinkle with the nuts.


In a small bowl beat the remaining egg.


On a floured surface roll the dough into a 15" x 20" rectangle. Spread the Nutella evenly over top of the dough leaving a ½" border on one long side.


Brush the border well with egg and roll the dough into a log. Trim the ends off and cut the log into 12 rounds. Transfer the rounds cut side up to the baking dish sprinkle with cinnamon and bake until golden brown about 30 minutes.


Meanwhile whisk the confectioners' sugar and milk together as needed to make a thin glaze. Let the rolls cool slightly before serving.


Invert them onto plates and drizzle with the glaze and the syrup and nuts from the bottom of the baking dish.

These sticky buns are essentially the same as the cinnamon rolls except the filling is different and the rolled buns are baked in pans that have been lined with a sweet nut mixture. When the buns are turned out of the pans, the sticky nut mixture comes with them as their tapping.
