You've probably heard this before. But I swear, these are THE SOFTEST, and THE FLUFFIEST cinnamon buns I've ever had in my life!
The secret is that the buns are made from supple brioche dough. This means that the dough is filled and kneaded with a ton of butter. Although this recipe takes longer to make than a traditional cinnamon bun, I promise you it is well worth the extra work and wait. You will feel so proud of yourself when you see the dough bubbling and rising (and when your family endlessly compliments you for making these incredible buns).
I also like to add some personality to these buns by adding some ground walnut into the filling. Feel free to leave the walnuts out if they're not your cup of tea.
