  1. Lightly grease 2 round cake pans with butter.
  2. Roll bread dough out to an 6x18-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Combine brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle over butter. Roll dough into a log, starting at the long edge. Moisten edge with water and seal. Cut log into 20 slices; arrange rolls, cut sides down, in prepared cake pans. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 90 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour heavy cream over dough.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  5. Mix confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a small bowl; drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls to serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I wanted the bread to hold onto the sugar and nuts and cinnamon, so I used the extra butter. Mine don't hold together very well, so I just make sure that the edges are all next to the pan or each other. I usually add extra nuts and cinnamon because my husband likes them.

Quick and very easy to make last Minuit with lots of taste. Will make these again. Only thing I did was made extra icing since my family likes them smothered with it.

I like this recipe, I've made it twice now but my rolls haven't turned out big at all. They're quite small actually. Maybe they need to sit out much longer than 90mins. Aside from size they'r...

My family loves cinnamon rolls but I hate making the bread part. When I found this recipe I was super excited to be able to use already made dough. I showed this recipe to a pastry chef to get s...

Very easy, though I made my own dough, adding 1/2 T Pumpkin Spice emulsion. I also added a splash to the icing. I only let it rise about 1/2 hour, which was more than enough for my dough.
