I messed up the topping because it was more jell like, but that was my own fault. I found this recipe way too sweet even for me who loves sweets. Although they rose well, I thought the dough was rather "pudgy" and not too my families liking. Jean Pare has an awesome Cinnamon Buns recipe in her Potato Cook Book. Nice texture as mashed potatoes are add to the dough. Definitely Cinnamon flavour as opposed to Caramel of this recipe. Also, time wise, Pare's recipe makes 36 buns as opposed to 12 in this recipe and takes the same amount of time with a much nicer Cinnamon flavour, great texture and beautiful rise using regular flour and they freeze great. Raisins are a really nice addition to Pare's recipe.
Also do not like the 1/2 cup of butter in this recipe. Had to double check to make sure I was reading it right. That's one hang of a lot of butter.
Sorry but I won't make this recipe again.
As always, to each their own.
