DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • In a small bowl stir together 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  • Into a large bowl sift together flour, remaining tablespoon granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut butter into small pieces and with your fingertips or a pastry blender blend into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • In another small bowl whisk together egg and 3 tablespoons milk and add to flour mixture, stirring until just combined.
  • Transfer mixture to a lightly floured surface and gently knead, 3 or 4 times, until it forms a dough. Pat dough into a 10- by 6-inch rectangle (about ‚ inch thick).
  • Brush dough with some remaining milk and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon sugar. Beginning with a short side, roll up rectangle to form a 6-inch log and cut crosswise into 4 pieces.
  • Arrange pieces on a baking sheet, cut sides up, with seams touching. Bake buns in middle of oven until pale golden and cooked through, about 18 minutes.
  • In another small bowl stir together confectioners' sugar and water until smooth and drizzle over warm buns.
