Cinnamon Rolls

I don’t remember where I got this recipe. I thought it was on this site, but I couldn’t find it. These are the best damned cinnamon rolls I have ever made. Thank you to whomever posted the recipe.

Cinnamon Rolls

Serving Size 12

1/4 cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
1 cup milk – room temperature
1 large egg – beaten,
1/4 cup butter – softened
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups all purpose white flour
1/2 package instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz box)

1 cup brown sugar-- packed
1 tablespoon cinnamon,
1/4 cup butter – softened

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 ounces cream cheese – softened,
1/4 cup butter – softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla,
1/2 tablespoon milk,
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Proof the yeast in the water. Mix remaining dough ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook. Add yeast mixture and knead until well mixed and dough is pliable.

Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon for the filling.
On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to an 18" by 30" rectangle.
Spread the softened butter over the dough and evenly sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Starting at the long edge of the dough, roll up tightly. Mark
the roll every 2 inches. With a thread (Unminted dental floss works well) cut the roll by placing the thread under the roll at your mark, crisscross over and pull to cut.

Place rolls into greased baking pans 2" apart. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place until almost double, approximately 1 hour.

After rising, rolls should be touching each other and the sides of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla and milk. Add powdered sugar and cinnamon and mix until smooth. Spread on warm rolls and serve immediately.

DELICIOUS!!! I LOVE these rolls. :slight_smile:

These are totally delicious!! I have been making the dough in my bread machine for yrs and have been making them the size of the Cinnabon Rolls in the mall. In fact, my recipe actually has the title ‘Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls’ and they taste exactly the same!! Yumm

I’ll need to try these, my family loves Cinnamon Rolls!

Omgosh. Awesome! This is the recipe for me!:D:D

Sound delicious! Can’t wait to try them. Thanks!!!

My mouth is watering already. Will be great to make for Christmas morning breakfast.

Can’t wait to try the cinnamon rolls.

Thanks for the recipe and thanks to Ron for the reminder. Plan to make tomorrow, using bread machine to mix dough and I’m hoping for accolades from family.


yummy yummy ty for recipe,will be passing it on to my daughterinlaw she make the store bought one’s at Christmas,I’m sure she will love them as much as I did.

Thanks for the recipe. I love cinnamon and am always looking for new things to make.

If you want something really good , put some chopped pecans or walnuts in with the brown sugar , cinnamon, butter mixture .Yum !! ( I absolutely love nuts )

Thank you for this recipe, it sounds wonderful. I would like to try it in my bread machine also as I do not have the strength in my hands to knead anything any more.

Haven’t tried it yet but I will!!!

i want to try these they sound so good

Thank You for this recipe. I will try it ASAP!

The night before, I prepare them up to the last rising, put them in the baking pan, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate them. In the morning I take them from the fridge, preheat the oven and bake them. If you have to do the full recipe in the morning it will be noon before you have nice hot cinnamon buns. This way they are ready in a short time.

I have a recipe that is similar to this one, except you use the premade bread dough that you buy frozen. My son loves the Cinnabon Rolls, so I am going to try this for Thanksgiving.


First of all, thanks to lvdkeyes for the recipe!!

Carmie, I was wondering how you made these in your bread machine. Do you put all of the ingredients from the 12-roll recipe in the bread machine at once or do you make smaller amounts at a time? It would be so much easier to use the bread machine since I don’t have a mixer with a dough hook. Also, do you proof the yeast before you put it into the machine? Thanks for your help. I can’t wait to try these. :smiley:

These sound totally awesome. I always smell the Cinnabons baking in the Mall and just have to have one with the icing and all. Mine just aren’t as good as those, so, I’m hoping this recipe will be. Will try them for our Christmas breakfast. Thank you!!!
