  • Knead the dough, turning it over about 3 or 4 times. Let it rest, covered loosely with plastic for 15 minutes or so.
  • Roll out into a 1/4 thick rectangle. Don't worry if it's not a perfect rectangle.
  • Mix sugars, zest, butter and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  • Spread sugar mixture all over dough, leaving a space at the ends of the dough.
  • Roll dough up starting with the short end. (If you want more and smaller buns, roll starting on the long end)
  • Cut into 4 equal pieces. (These will be pretty big buns, I usually make smaller ones, because I have a lot of other food on my breakfast table)
  • Let them rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. (If you are using the refrigerated dough)*
  • Bake at 350* F. for 25 to 30 minutes, until deep golden brown.
  • Let them rest for 10 minutes, then drizzle with glaze.
