The Pioneer Woman’s Cinnamon Buns
I’ve posted this recipe before as sticky buns (amazing sticky buns made with peach schnappes jam) The dough for these sticky sweet cinnamon buns is super easy to put together and the rising times are relatively short. The recipe suggests a maple glaze but a cream cheese frosting would be so fantastic as well.
