 Ingredients List

  • 2 c All purpose flour
  • 3 tb Granulated sugar
  • 4 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Cream of tartar
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Cold butter
  • 3/4 c Milk
  • 6 tb Brown sugar, packed
  • 2 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tb Butter, melted


YOU WILL NEED: a medium bowl, 2 mixing spoons, measuring spoons, measuring
cups, a pastry blender, a sharp knife, a small bowl, a small saucepan, a
hot pad, a pastry brush, a cookie sheet, oven mitts and a wire rack. 1.
Turn the oven on to 400 F. Measure the first 5 ingredients in the bowl.
Stir well. 2. Add the butter and cut it in with the pastry blender until it
is in tiny pieces and the whole mixture is crumbly. 3. Add the milk. Stir
until it pulls away from the side of the bowl and forms a soft ball. Turn
out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 8 times or until dough is
smooth. Cut the dough into 2 equal portions. Cut each portion in half
making 4 pieces of dough. Now divide each piece into 3, making a total of
12 pieces. Using the palms of your hands, roll each piece into a long rope
at least 12 inches long. 4. Measure the borwn sugar and cinnamon into the
small bowl. Stir well until evenly mixed. Pour onto working surface.
Spread into a rectangle about 4x14 inches. 5. Put the second amount of
melted butter into the saucepan. Use the pastry brush to brush another
rectangle on the working surface, the same size as the sugar-cinnamon. Roll
1 rope at a time in the butter, then roll it in the sugar-cinnamon to coat.
Roll up like a spiral or pinwheel, like a snake might curl up. Pinch the
last 1/2 inch of the end flat and tuck it underneath the bun. Arrange the
buns on the greased cookie sheet.
Bake on the center rack in the oven for 12-15 minutes. A wooden toothpick
inserted in the center should come out clean. Use the oven mitts to remove
the baking sheet to the wire rack. Cool. Makes 12 buns.
