How long will the buns need to bake in the oven?

Do I add the glaze to the Oreo Sticky Buns immediately?

After you pull the sticky buns out of the oven, allow them to cool for about 15 minutes while you prepare the perfect glaze. Once they’ve cooled for a minimum of 15 minutes, you can add the glaze on top.
