Ingredients (for the dough)

  • 1 cup of whole milk
  • 4 cups and a 1⁄4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄4 cup of ice-cold water
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1⁄4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter


  • 4 ounces of Lotus cookies, lightly crushed
  • 1⁄2 cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 12 tablespoons of unsalted butter, at room temperature


  • Room-temperature unsalted butter, for the pan
  • All-purpose flour, for rolling
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup of confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter, at room temperature

Cooking Directions

  • Warm milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, then simmer on low for 1 more minute. Remove from heat. Transfer 1⁄3 cup hot milk to a stand mixer bowl. In the saucepan, whisk 1⁄4 cup flour into the remaining milk, heat until thickened, and add to the mixer bowl.
  • Add cold water and eggs to the mixer bowl, then mix in yeast and 4 cups flour on low speed. Let it rest for 5 minutes. Add sugar and salt, mix until smooth for 15-20 minutes. Slowly add butter. Let the dough rise in a buttered bowl for 1-1.5 hours at room temperature, then chill overnight.
  • In a food processor, pulse cookies, sugar, cinnamon, and salt for crumbs. Add butter to make the filling. Butter and line a pan. Roll out the dough, spread filling, roll into a spiral, and chill. Cut into pieces, arrange in the pan, and let rise for 30-60 minutes.
  • Cover with buttered foil, bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for 15-20 more minutes until golden brown. Cool on a rack for 15 minutes.
  • Mix cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add butter, mix. Spread icing on cooled buns.
