Mini Cinnamon Bites: Small cinnamon buns

Because I didn't post bread recipes, it doesn't mean that I stop baking bread ^^. It's still one of my hobby.

I didn't try any new recipes lately, so I don't have anything to share with you, haha. Baking bread at home is good in many aspects, first it's relaxing, second you will have delicious and fresh bread to enjoy, and the last one you will be proud, when you tell someone that you bake it by yourself, haha.
This recipe is very easy to make, it uses all purpose flour and it means the kneading is easier (the all purpose flour contains less protein than bread flour, so you need less time to knead it). After adding the milk and egg into the flour mixture, try to mix it until the dough moistened before kneading the butter into the dough, or it will be hard to knead it until smooth.
This recipe makes small cinnamon buns ^^, that you will be happy to eat more than 1 piece. Serve it whole, so you can enjoy pulling each pieces out. Sharing it with your friends and family, having good conversation  and you will wonder how fast they will go.

Put the weight of your body into the motion and get into a rhythm. Keep folding over and compressing the dough. Knead for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is soft, pliable, smooth and slightly shiny, almost satiny. But this dough is a bit sticky, use a bit of flour will help (1-2 tbsp)
