  • In a saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add cream cheese, cinnamon, and vanilla to pan, and stir until smooth. Remove from heat, and cool for 5 minutes.

  • Spread cinnamon and cream cheese mixture over puff pastry. Roll puff pastry into a log, and pinch ends together to keep filling inside. Place roll in prepared pan.

I added some brown sugar to the cream cheese filling and didn't use the frosting. Easy and quick. You can microwave the filling instead of using a saucepan to make it even easier. Read More

I agree with previous reviews this is nothing like a cinnamon roll. I tried this recipe for a family dinner that I was hosting and it did not go over well. The cream cheese filling amount needs to be decreased and it should be slightly sweetened. The original amount made it soggy and almost impossible to slice into individual rolls. The sweetness of the frosting is not enough since you are adding it to the warm roll the runs right off. I would not try this again. Read More

To call these cinnamon rolls is a real stretch. They are soft with the filling and hard to cut and not sweet enough Read More

Not sure what happened to the editing of this lil recipe but of Course people did not like it!! Why would you if its supposed to be sweet and it has NO sugar!! People add white or brown sugar to this and mix it with the cinnamon. I forgot about the cream cheese. I brushed the rolled out dough with butter and sprinkled it with cinny/ sugar. Rolled em up baked and spread with cream cheese frosting. I had 4 Young adults in the house they Devored these rolls in record time!! I will make these again for sure Thank you Klutz!! Excellent recipe who needs more attention AND Redo then it is actually getting. Read More

I think there was enough cinnamon cream cheese mixture to have done two pastry puff sheets. The mixture is not sweet enough at all. I will probably make this again but will half the mixture and add some sugar or brown sugar. Read More

These were awful. The filling was not sweet at all and the outside of the roll was overdone while the inside stayed raw. Also very hard to cut. Read More
