Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes or 5 in a stand mixer with a dough hook.
Place dough in a lightly oiled large bowl, cover and let rise for 1-2 hours. Roll dough into a 16×21 rectangle.

Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch, and butter in a bowl and spread over dough. Roll dough up lengthwise and cut into 12 even rolls. Place in a lightly greased 9×13 baking pan.

IMG_9563 IMG_9560 IMG_9575 IMG_9573*This is my second attempt making cinnamon bun. Better than the first one I made but not quite there yet…almost. My memory for cinnamon buns is fluffy, gooey and cinnamon lingering. I used a kitchen string to cut the dough instead of using a knife. I’m only glad my son Ethan loves it. enJOY!!!
