I love Cinnamon Buns!

I have been obsessed with cinnamon buns since I was little. I always chose them over chocolate, ice cream, candy, etc. I came across this recipe here and was basically drooling on my computer. This recipe is a little time consuming and I need instant gratification when I am craving something so I'm surprised I even made them. Let me tell you though...it was definitely worth it!
Every time I make something, there is always a part I do differently from what the recipe calls for. In this particular situation the size of my cinnamon buns came out gigantic. If you want a bunch of medium sized buns then I suggest actually following the part that tells you to roll out the dough to 15X11 inches!

Shopping List 

Dough

  • 1 Cup of milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 1/2 cups (or more) unbleached all purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid-rise yeast (from 2 envelopes yeast)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
Filling
  • 3/4 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
Glaze
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
