(easy) Morning Buns with Cinnamon Buttermilk Glaze

I love yeasted cinnamon morning buns probably more than anyone. I love tearing apart the puffy, soft dough to reveal the gooey cinnamon center. I like it when the glaze hardens just slightly on top, and cracks when you take a bite. And I won’t lie – I love the oohs and ahhs from the overnight house guests when you pull them out of the oven.

I know, I know: it really doesn’t take that long, but just long enough to give you pause before starting (the night before, if you’re smart). And that’s where these babies come in: they are yeast-less cinnamon buns – almost like biscuits with a cinnamon sugar swirl – and they are easy and tasty and my new favorite thing. Easy Morning Buns with Cinnamon Buttermilk Glaze | Jessie Sheehan BakesBack in the day, when I worked at Baked, we made a version of these all the time – in fact the recipe was very much like this one. and I thought they were the bomb – that is, until we started making a yeasted version and I forgot all about my first love (yeast will do that to you). But in the end, I am loyal and have come back around to the beauty of the quick bun. And am wondering if you might want to come back round with me . . . If so, you can find the recipe here
