Those look great! I'm not a baker (made homemade bread from scratch once, years ago) but I might give these a try.

Oh yea that’s the way I make them, but I put a layer of melted butter & brown sugar on the bottom of the pan, about 1/8” thick, then put the buns on top of that. It makes a wonderful crust on the bottom of the buns. I also like to put just as much frosting on them as you. But my wife scrapes half of it off onto my bun. That’s cool with me. I only make these once a year on New Year’s Day morning!
We each eat one & freeze the rest for a later snack! Well maybe we don’t freeze all of them :emoji_sunglasses:

Looks delicious! I make them similar just leave out the icing. Too sweet for us but don't scrimp on the butter.
