Directions

  1. Lightly grease 2 round cake pans with butter.
  2. Roll bread dough out to an 18x6-inch rectangle and brush with melted butter. Mix brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over dough. Roll dough into a log, starting at the long edge. Moisten edge with a little water; seal the edge. 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 1 1/2 hours.
  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. Stir confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth, adding more milk or sugar as needed so the mixture is easily drizzled. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls to serve.

I love this recipe. Very easy and the rolls come out just like my mom used to make. To get the bread dough to rise properly, I take one loaf from the freezer, put it in an 8x8 or large pie pan, ...

I was amazed at how easy they were to make but also how really yummy they were too! This recipe is great anytime but especially when you don't have the time to make dough from scratch!

Dear CLOUDY 14, the Heavy Cream is poured over the dough in STEP 3. (it is written out after the oven temp setting.) Hope that answers your question.
