Cinnamon Swirl Buns

1 package yeast
1/2 tsp sugar
3/4 cup warm water
2 cups flour
dash of salt
2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
4 tbsp butter (1/2 stick)
2 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Mix in small bowl- 1 package yeast, 1/2 tsp sugar, and 3/4 cup warm water in a bowl. Let the yeast stand 5 to 10 minutes until bubbles form. Sift 2 cups flour and a dash of salt into a large mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil and the yeast mixture in the small bowl to the larger mixing bowl with dry ingredients. Mix for a few minutes with a wooden spoon and then mix with your hands. Knead dough until flour is fully incorporated and texture is smooth. Set aside in an oiled mixing bowl for 20-30 minutes.

Remove the dough from bowl and divide in half. Roll each half out flat, either into a circle or a square. Spread 4 tbsp butter (1/2 stick) over the top of each half. Mix 2 tbsp cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar together in a bowl and sprinkle over the butter on the dough. Roll each half into a log. Cut the logs into slices about 1 inch thick onto a baking tray.

The oven should be preheated at 375 degrees. Bake at this temperature for about 12 minutes
