Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

Totally anticipating that nobody would be going to work this morning because of the latest snow storm, I whipped up a batch of Cinnamon Rolls last night in the bread machine & let them proof on the counter overnight so that I could bake them off this morning. My guys got a nice warm mid week breakfast treat today! Here's the recipe:

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing


  • 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup margarine, melted
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order they are listed above (or per your machine manufacturers recommendations. Select dough cycle; press Start.

After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Roll dough into about a 15x20 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. (I covered them with cooking sprayed plastic and left them on the counter over night and they were fine)

When you're ready to bake them, preheat oven to 400 degrees

Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
