Turn onto lightly floured board. Dough will be soft and sticky. Do not knead but gently turn dough several times with a spatula to lightly coat with flour. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to rest 20 minutes. Meanwhile grease 2 baking sheets and make topping.

TOPPING: Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolk and cinnamon and blend. Add flour and mix well. Mixture will be crumbly.

With floured hands, divide dough into 12 pieces and shape into round flat buns. Place on greased baking sheets. Sprinkle equal amounts of topping over each bun and press lightly into dough.

Loosely cover rolls with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4-24 hours. Remove from refrigerator, uncover and let stand while preheating oven to 400F. Bake 15 minutes.
