BBA Challenge - Cinnamon Buns

Today was a perfect day to mix up some of Mr. Reinhart's Cinnamon Buns.  I  didn't have any trouble mixing the dough.  I used all the buttermilk and added just a bit extra flour to help the dough come away from the bowl.  The dough was nice and soft.  I made the large buns.  Cutting the rolled dough was a little tricky on my first try when I tried to saw back and forth with my knife.  But I found if I used my serrated knife and pulled the knife toward me, then lifted it up and drew it through again and again, I was able to cut the pieces without mashing the dough.  Then I used a little spatula to lift the pieces onto my pan.
After rising the buns were touching like they should:
After baking I only used about 1/2 of the glaze to drizzle over the tops.  It was enough for our taste.
We really liked these with a cup of coffee.  Thank you, Mr. Reinhart.
