Almost everyone I know has someone in their family, be it a grandmother, aunt, uncle or cousin that can make a batch of killer cinnamon buns from scratch. Close your eyes now and focus for just a moment on the aroma of cinnamon buns baking in the oven . . . mmmmmmmm, yes it’s a heavenly scent for sure.
In my family we had an aunt on my father’s side of the family that was our Cinnamon Bun Queen. Unfortunately, I never got my hands on the recipe before she passed away ( 😥 ). However, my daughter Michelle just happened to have a good friend that shared the recipe her family treasures, and a couple of Christmases ago Michelle gave that recipe a try. Oh my goodness did we ever strike gold! My daughter has perfected those cinnamon buns, icing and all and we couldn’t be happier. She’s turned that recipe into her own Christmas tradition and during our recent visit to her house over the holiday we enjoyed every morsel of the batch she baked.
I imagine at this point you’re probably thinking I’m going to end this blog with the recipe; you would be wrong. Get your own.
