A wise woman once said, "You can never have too many morning buns." Yes! One million times yes.
Come on! Put off that yogurt and granola for January (or, you know, a regular ol' weekday morning) and try your hand at an airy, fluffy, swirly cinnamon bun (or one of its yeasted cousins) instead.
Fun to make (the rising! the smearing! the rolling!), fun to eat (the un-twirling! the drippy icing! the gooey center!), and fun to admire, these 12 recipes are sure to have your head spinning (in the best way possible).
