Bake the Buns
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F, then place the muffin tins on baking sheets to prevent any filling from dripping onto the oven floor. Bake the buns for 12 minutes, then rotate the pans and continue baking until the buns are golden brown and cooked through, about 12 minutes longer. Remove the pans from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before removing the buns and letting them cool on a wire rack. Drizzle the bourbon glaze generously over the buns.
