BBA Cinnamon Buns and Sticky Buns
These cinnamon buns sounded really good - not too sweet and gooey - so I was excited to try them. I decided to make the cinnamon buns rather than the sticky buns and mixed up the dough. I liked it that they had the zest of a lemon in them. He said 1 tsp but I didn't measure - just grated the lemon zest and put it into the dough.
The dough was a little soft so I had to add a little flour - just a smidgeon, but it came together better after I had done that.
I have real Ceylon cinnamon that I buy from My Spice Sage. I put it in my adult children's stockings every Christmas and also get some for me. It's so much better than what we buy in the grocery store!
The recipe didn't make a ton of rolls - just a dozen. They rose on the cookie sheet on which they would be baked.
This is how they looked coming out of the oven. And then I glazed them - I made the recipe's suggested amount of glaze. Next time I will cut it in half. I have about 3/4 of a cup in my refrigerator right this minute.
They were really delicious and everyone I gave them to, loved them.
