Cinnamon Buns

Cinnamon Buns was among the choices to bake at the Cake Slice. This was an easy choice for me.Who doesn't love Cinnamon Rolls?! I love the gooey, iced soaked middle of the rolls! 

This recipe called for mashed potatoes. Yeast LOVE starch! This dough rises into a gooey mound, making the dough sticky and a little harder to work with. But its okay, they turn out delicious!

If you love the cinnamon filling then I suggest you double the ingredients, it was not enough for me! Although the rolls were delicious, they screamed for more butter and cinnamon!

If icing is your thing too, then double it! The recipe gave the rolls a thin icing layer, not enough for me! The rolls screamed for an extra layer of the buttery icing, which by the way was delicious! 
So go ahead and plan to bake these for Christmas morning, if you have stockings to fill early in the morning then just stay up and start the dough. I promise you your family will be forever grateful!
I didn't have the chance to type up the recipe but I found it at Dinner at Sheila's! Before I forget, I omitted the raisins, but if you love raisins in your rolls then go ahead and add them, I don't prefer them.

Weren't these good?! I agree, more cinnamon filling never hurt anyone and I did double the glaze! I was sorry to see the last one go!

Delicious and you are right about the filling...more is better with cinnamon buns. I did a simpler icing and left out the raisins, too, but added nuts and changed the shape. Still, a great and great smelling bread! Love your photos...makes me want to dig in and have one right now!
