Cinni-Minni Buns

Who would have guessed that you could make desserts in your bread machine? I made these for get together with some friends of ours. Everyone loved them! These Cinni-Minni Buns are not only adorable but very fluffy and flaky too! I got this recipe out of the Bread Machine Magic Book, but I modified the filling and used my own frosting from one of the previous Daring Baker's Challenge: Carmalized Brown Butter Frosting. This is the best frosting and goes with any type of dessert that requires frosting. But of course you can use a simple vanilla glaze if you like. But I really feel like it "jazzes" desserts up.

This desserts requires a little time to make than just a simple bread, but it is well worth it! Enjoy!
