Lovely Cinnamon Buns Recipe @pinch

Soft and airy, these lovely cinnamon buns have the perfect amount of filling. There's a lot of cinnamon flavor, but it doesn't go overboard. Kissed with the right amount of vanilla, the icing makes these even more decadent. Preparing these cinnamon buns does take a while, but they're not hard to make. A great recipe for the weekend or a holiday morning when life isn't as rushed. I love making these. The recipe is a real timer saver as you can have them done in a couple of hours.
