Cinnamon Sticky Buns

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by evelynathens

Cinnamon Buns are what we have for breakfast every Christmas Morning. I make them up the night before and give them a slow rise in the refrigerator overnight, pop them into the oven when I get up and voila, warm, yummy, gooey rolls to enjoy with coffee while the kids are opening up their presents. There are 2 risings to this recipe. The second one is the overnight one.

Very tasty, sweet and STICKY! I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I let my ABM make the dough!
