If you want to make the world’s best cinnamon buns, you also need the world’s best bun recipe.
Sometimes when Grandma Frache makes her buns, she will also make extra dough to do cinnamon buns.  They’re basically just amazing!
There isn’t a set recipe for these buns.  Grandma is the sort of baker who just knows what looks and fells right, and will grab a handful of this, a pinch of that…
To make the cinnamon buns, you roll out the bun dough to about 1/2-1” thick.  Spread a lot of butter on the dough. Sprinkle with a lot of cinnamon.  Spread a lot of brown sugar on top. (Optional: sprinkle raisins on top)
Roll up the dough to form a “log”.  make sure it’s rolled up tight!  Using a piece of thread, wrap it around the dough and close off to cut.  Put on a jelly roll pan close together and bake 15-18 minutes @350F or until tested done.
