Hi! My 3 year old has been asking about honey buns (he hears them mentioned in a toddler song, of course) and I can't seem to find a recipe that approximates that soft roll that I recall honey buns being. I'm trying to avoid showing him what they are like with store bought ones. I tried just using a sweet dough and making essentially cinnamon rolls without cinnamon, but they didn't have the shape or soft finish.
Anyone have a recipe or a suggestion for modifying one to keep it soft? And instructions about shaping (how are they so low and flat)?
