Ingredients for the buns:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter-room temperature
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 2-3 cups bread flour
  • Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 1-2 tablespoons brown sugar

Ingredients for the icing:

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner sugar
  • 6 ounces cream cheese-softened
  • 4 tablespoons butter-room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons milk

Instructions:

Making the buns:

  1. Heat milk in a sauce pan until temperature reaches 95-115 degrees Fahrenheit (if it is any hotter or cooler, then the yeast won't activate). Pour immediately into a mixing bowl. Stir in 1 cup of flour. Once flour is incorporated add in salt, sugar, butter and yeast. Allow mixture to sit until bubbly which is approximately 10-15 minutes.

  2. Gradually stir in the rest of the flour using a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment. The amount of flour needed for the dough can vary depending on humidity. Stop adding flour once dough is no longer sticking to the sides of the mixing bowl, and feels about the same consistency as your earlobe. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead a few times by hand until smooth.

  3. Place ball of dough into a greased medium sized bowl. Turn dough in bowl until entire surface of the dough is greased. Cover with a clean dish towel, place in a warm area, and allow dough to rise for 1-2 hours or until dough is doubled in size.

  4. Punch dough down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness using a rolling pin into and 8x12 inch rectangle. Brush dough with melted butter. Sprinkle a liberal amount of brown sugar and cinnamon over surface. Roll up dough starting at either end of the rectangle. Using a sharp knife, cut roll into 1 inch slices.

  5. Place rolls into a greased 9x12 baking dish. Cover again and let rolls rise for another hour.

  6. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until tops and edges are golden brown. Let rolls cool before topping with icing.

Making the icing:

  1. Using an electric mixer, blend sugar, cream cheese and butter until mixed together.
  2. Add vanilla and milk and mix until smooth.
