I've never really enjoyed baking other than cookies (those are hard to mess up). But recently I've started to enjoy baking other things such as cinnamon buns (obviously), bread and other adventurous things. I think it started a couple months ago when I tried to bake my Great Grandmother's German buns (seriously so delicious). They turned out exactly how I remembered them. Then I thought I could definitely get a handle of this. I love making cinnamon buns because you get to knead the dough and do many other things with your hands. But mostly I love cinnamon buns because 1. Cream cheese icing is probably one of the best things in the entire world, 2. Even if you mess up, they will still probably taste delicious, 3. Everyone loves cinnamon buns! (except maybe people with a massive amount of cavities!)
I found this recipe on "foodess.com", it's a cute little site with some great pictures and recipes!
Icing: note to self: do not lick beaters without thinking about what you are doing. Your lip ring MIGHT get caught in the beaters.
Method for Dough:
Punch down dough. Transfer to floured work surface. Roll out to 15×11-inch rectangle. Spread butter over dough, leaving 1/2-inch border. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly over butter. Starting at 1 long side, roll dough into log, pinching gently to keep it rolled up. With seam side down, cut dough crosswise with thin sharp knife into 18 equal slices (each about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide).
