This is a recipe that I've had in my collection of McCall's Cooking School recipe cards for many years. I've made these buns several times. I just hauled it out again last week to enter cinnamon buns in the county fair - I won second prize! This is a very easy recipe, nice light, airy bun with a great amount of flavour - the outside buns get crispy but the inside buns are very soft all the way around. They reheat well in the microwave. I usually sub pecans for raisins and occasionally frost with cream cheese frosting.
