You have got to try this Cinnabon recipe. The first time I made these rolls, I thought of how much money I could save by making my own!

12 rolls



  • 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)

  • 2 eggs, room temperature

  • cup margarine, melted

  • 4 ½ cups bread flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 ½ teaspoons bread machine yeast


  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed

  • 2 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon

  • cup butter, softened


  • 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar

  • ¼ cup butter, softened

  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • teaspoon salt


  1. Prepare dough: Place milk, eggs, margarine, flour, salt, white sugar, and yeast in the pan of a bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.

  2. When dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover it with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rest for 10 minutes.

  3. Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to a 16x21-inch rectangle.

  4. Prepare filling: Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread softened butter over the dough, then sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over top.

  5. Starting at the longer end, roll up the dough; cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

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

  8. While rolls are baking, prepare icing: Beat confectioners' sugar, butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and salt until creamy.

  9. Spread icing on warm rolls before serving.
