What's the difference between cinnamon rolls and cinnamon buns?

Both involve yeasted dough that is patted into a rectangle and sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar, rolled into pinwheels, and sliced into rolls. One of the major differences between the two is that cinnamon buns contain nuts (usually pecans). Cinnamon rolls, on the other hand, do not have nuts, at least not traditionally.

Why are my cinnamon rolls so dry?

Too much flour and the rolls will be dry and tough. Not enough flour and the rolls won't have enough structure to rise and will be dense and soggy. Toward the end of mixing, gradually add a tablespoon at a time and check the texture of the dough after each addition.
