Delicious cinnamon bun !! Highly addicting! Once you have eaten one, you crave more! Very easy to make. I also used a 13x9 pan. I made 1/2 the icing recipe and found it to thicken and harden too fast before I was able to sprinkle chopped nuts on. Next time I will have to tweak the icing recipe. This recipe is a keeper in my family! Thank you !
Delicious! I was a bit worried as the dough barely rose, even after an extra rise. However, the majority of rising happened while in the oven. Instead of melted butter, I used soft butter and mixed it with the cinnamon and sugar, then spread this mixture on the dough. Very airy buns. I will certainly be making these again!
These taste nice but the dry milk gives them a synthetic taste and I will use real milk next time. I increased the baking time because when I checked them at 18 minutes they were still doughy in spots. I found the filling is too wet with all that butter, and the icing is too thin. This is a nice recipe to start with and customize.
