National Sticky Bun Day

I’ve got this gift that I want to share with you all; any time a National Food Holiday is happening, I make said food a couple of days before without even knowing. I guess you could say food & I are just really in sync.

In the spirit of National Sticky Bun Day, I wanted to share my secret to making perfect cinnamon buns every. single. time. I made these this past weekend and the only warning I will give you, is try to eat just one.

What you’ll need? 

  • Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
  • Honey
  • Sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, plus more as needed

What to do? 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 and grease an 8-inch cake pan
  • Arrange cinnamon buns in a circle in the pan and throw that canned icing away – you won’t need it!
  • Drizzle honey over top of the cinnamon buns and then sprinkle sugar on top
  • Top each cinnamon bun with a tab of cold butter
  • Bake for 13-17 min or until golden brown

While those are baking… 

  • In large bowl, beat softened butter and cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed 2 to 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally, until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in vanilla, then stir in powdered sugar. Add more powdered sugar as needed until frosting is a thick spreadable consistency.
  • When you take the cinnamon buns out of the oven and they’re still hot, spread your cream cheese frosting over top and let them sit for 10-15 minutes until the gooeyness sets in
