I overcooked them slightly so the bottoms were on the overdone side and they were dry. I made a half batch of the white fondant glaze and it was plenty. I'd like to try them again at some point. Reinhart also gives a recipe for using brioche dough for the cinnamon roll. Now that is decadence!

BBA Challenge is Cinnamon Buns. These were very good, although I did have a few struggles. Part of me thinks I should stay on this bread until I have perfected it. Practice makes perfect! Unfortunately, practice would also cause me to gain way too much weight. My sister bakes homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch every Christmas morning. She gets up extra early to start them (then again she's always been one of those crazy people who is up by 6 anyway). She says it's so much fun to smell them in the oven as they open gifts. I love the idea of this tradition and might just have to borrow it for our family. Although, I think I'll make them early afternoon cinnamon rolls instead of mid-morning rolls.
