Honey Cinnamon Buns With Cream Cheese Frosting

“What a great recipe!! I'm so proud of myself for making this! It started out with a friend of mine asking me to make her some cinnamon buns for her husband, note that I normally use other peoples recipes, so I decided to finally make my own. And guess what! They were great! What a wonderful thing to take to work with you too. Thank you for trying them. ENJOY!”
