Note From The Kraft Kitchens

We listened to your feedback and made a few changes to these easy-to-make cinnamon buns, which are a delicious twist on the sticky cinnamon buns that you can buy at your grocery store. In addition to increasing the flour to make the dough easier to handle, we also increased the cinnamon to make the flavour of these buns even more enjoyable.

    This is a great recipe and so versatile as you can make the basic dough recipe and mix up what you want to add on the dough before you roll it up. Be careful when rolling up, you don't want to roll up too tight because when baking, (note for soccer2882) it will bake on the outside only and leave the inside doughy. Try using mixing a bit of light brown sugar with the white sugar, some cinnamon, chopped nuts of choice, or chopped dried ***** before rolling. Yummy.

    If you enjoy cinnamon buns with no flavor, make these! These were a good waste of ingredients. They baked perfectly, but were not sweet at all. I will definitely not be making these again!

    Just made these this morning and they are very good!! I did not use the muffin tins but instead placed them a couple inches apart on a parchment cookie sheet. I will definitely make them again!
