  1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
  2. 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.
  3. Roll dough into a 16x21-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. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. 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.

These were okay, but nothing special. I have always used a different recipe for my cinnamon rolls and have always gotten rave reviews on them. People ask me to make them all the time. When I s...

These are fantastic cinnamon rolls but I have yet to see people suggest the key part to these rolls! As soon as you take them out of the oven you need to flip the pan over which allows all of t...

These are fantastic! It's a fairly quick and easy recipe as far as cinnamon buns go, and you definitely DON'T NEED A BREAD MACHINE to make them. Just use an 8 gram pack of dry active yeast inst...

These are really good. I experimented with my batch and found that after shaping the rolls and placing them in the greased pan, they could rest, covered, in the fridge overnight. In the morning...

I make these to the point where they are placed in the baking dish, then I cover them with plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator for the night. The next day, they go into a COLD oven (m...

Prevent leaky filling! From a former Cinnabon employee...Leave a 1/4" margin at the far side of dough b4 buttering. This will allow a better seal (dough-to-dough) when done rolling. After spread...

Not a cinnabon, but very good! We have already made this recipe twice and I just downloaded it three days ago! I have a few suggestions though...1 T. of cinnamon was plenty. Also, we did one ...

I loved this recipe! Since I don't have a bread machine, (mainly because I like to make a lot at once), I doubled this recipe. I dissolved the milk and sugar then added the yeast. I let that get...

My skinny father in law ate 6 batches of these in a little over a week. They're really good and have made me a popular gal at potlucks and brunches. I do like to cut down a little on the sugar...
