We love tearing into ooey gooey cinnamon buns. While they do take a great deal of time to make, this recipe splits the steps so that you don’t have to wake up extra early. The addition of buttermilk makes for a tender roll, and allowing the dough to rest overnight in the fridge lends a deeply complex flavor, bringing out the yeasty goodness outstanding cinnamon buns are known for. Sweet ribbons of cream cheese frosting take this recipe from satisfying to wanting to devour the entire pan in one sitting. The frosting seeps into the warm pastries just after they are taken out of the oven allowing for major flavor infusion. This is one recipe that you will want to sink your teeth into after making them for a Sunday brunch crowd, or after baking a batch for a weeknight dessert.
