Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 12 rolls
  • 1 C warm milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 C butter, melted
  • 4 1/2 C flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 white sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast
Place ingredients in the pan of a bread machine. Select dough cycle; press start.
After dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare filling...

  • 1 C brown sugar
  • 2 1/2  TBS cinnamon
  • 1/3 C butter, softened
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
After dough has set for about 10 minutes, roll into a 16x21 inch rectangle.
Spread butter evenly over the dough.
Sprinkle sugar/cinnamon mixture evenly over the butter.
Roll up dough; cut into 12 rolls [cut approximately every 1 1/2 inches].
Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan.
Cover; let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake rolls in preheated oven at 400 degrees until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
While rolls are baking, prepare frosting...

  • 1 3 oz. package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 C butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
Beat all ingredients together in a small bowl.
Once rolls are finished baking, remove from oven and cover with frosting before serving.
