Tips: Secrets to perfect pastries. Making the right dough for the job, creating an easy filling and learning how to glaze are all simpler techniques than you might think. "Proofing" means activating the yeast in the dough. Once it's activated, the yeast should be added to dough containing just enough flour to incorporate it. After mixing and kneading the dough, Fabio double proofs his cinnamon buns in place slightly warmer than room temperature before baking to give them a great size and doughy texture. Perfect cinnamon buns are the result of good dough that's rolled loosely and topped with brown sugar and cinnamon. Yum.

½ tsp granulated sugar, plus ¼ cup
