Cinnamon Rolls. Love them. Can’t begin to count the number of recipes I have tried. Still on the quest to find the perfect one. A while back I tried Pioneer Woman’s. Did I love them because of the maple frosting (really really really yummy) or bc they were the best ever cinnamon rolls, or bc they are baked in a pan coated with melted butter? Not sure. They were exceptional, but (in my weird, food obsessed opinion) still not perfection. They were more of a sticky maple bun, and a little bit of a lighter dough than I prefer. To date, this recipe has been my favorite. The claim is, they taste “just like Cinnabons”… I’m not sure about that. But they are pretty darn delish.
If you have a recipe you love, bring a pan on over, or (lame 2nd option) email me the recipe.
1 (1/4 ounce) package dry yeast
1 cup warm milk, I used whole
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon flour
4 tablespoons butter
1 1/4-1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
To make filling, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, melted butter and flour in a bowl.
Spread the filling mixture evenly over the surface of the dough.
