Amazing Cinnamon Rolls

Preheat oven to 425. Melt 8 tablespoon of unsalted butter in a small saucepan. Using 1 tablespoon of the butter, brush a 9" cake pan to coat.
Make the cinnamon filling by combining 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar with 1/4 cup white sugar, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, dash of both cloves and salt, Add 1 tablespoon of melted butter and mix to combine until the mixture looks like wet sand (see photo above). Set aside.
For your quick dough, whisk together 2-1/2 cups all purpose flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1-1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. In a measuring cup, whisk together 1-1/4 cups of buttermilk and 2 tablespoons melted butter. Add to the flour mixture, stiring with a spoon until liquid is absorbed. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead until just smooth. Pat the dough using your hands into a 12x9" rectangle.
Brush the dough with 2 tablespoons of melted butter.
Sprinkle with the sugar filling, leaving a 1/2 inch border around the edges. Press the filling into the dough.

Starting from the long side, roll the dough, use a bench scraper or spatula to loosen it from the work surface, into a tight log shape.

lace the log seam side down and cut into 8 even slices.

Press the seam edge together and put the slices in to the prepared pan as shown. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter.

Bake until golden brown, about 23-25 minutes. While the buns are baking, prepare the icing by combining 2 tablespoons cream cheese at room temperature with 2 tablespoons buttermilk, Sift  1 cup of confectioners sugar over top, whisking to combine and removing all lumps, about 30 seconds to make the glaze. Remove the buns from the oven and invert onto a plate. Invert again onto a cooling rack with waxed paper underneath. Cool about 5 minutes then spoon the glaze over top of the rolls. Serve immediately for best results (but then again... who could wait!!??)
