  • Knead with the dough hook on medium for 8 minutes. The dough should be soft and slightly tacky. Alternately, knead by hand for 8-10 minutes on a floured surface.

  • On a lightly floured surface, tip out the dough and roll out to a large, long rectangle. Spread the butter evenly, all the way to the edges. Whisk together the cinnamon and sugar in small bowl then spread evenly onto the dough. Roll into a tight roll, cut into 12 even pieces. Place in a small 8 inch cast iron pan or small baking pan.

  • Heat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until slightly golden and just cooked through or the internal temp comes to 190°F. Five minutes before the buns are almost done baking, melt the butter and sugar together to make a glaze. Brush the glaze on during the last five minutes of baking.
