Method[edit]

Pastry[edit]

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Cut-in shortening.
  2. Add the milk, stirring with a knife until the dough is soft and slightly sticky.
  3. Knead the dough until it "springs back" when you push your hand into it.
  4. Roll the dough into a 9" by 13" (23g by 30g) rectangle. Use a 9" by 13" (23g by 30g) baking pan as a mould for the size.

Filling[edit]

  1. Brush butter over the dough, leaving about 1/4" (0.75cm) around the edges clear.
  2. Combine brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and salt. Sprinkle on buttered dough, leaving about 1/4" around the edges clear.
  3. Press the sugar mixture down. Roll the dough lengthwise, as tight as you can.
  4. Trim the edges, cut into eight pieces.
  5. Arrange the buns in a small pan, so that all the buns are touching. Bake at 425°F (210c) for 15-20 minutes.

Topping[edit]

  1. Combine icing sugar and liquid. Whisk together, spread on buns when they have finished baking.
