Found this on recipegoldmine.com and LOVE it! The ingredients are similar to other cinnabon copycats on this site, but this is simplified by using the bread machine. Hope you enjoy it as much as me and my family!(=

These are absolutely delicious! I make the cinnamon rolls using the exact ingredients described. The prep variations are: After I cut the rolls, I put onto a greased 9 x 13 Casserole dish. I allow to rise for thirty minutes on the counter and then put in the fridge overnight so they're ready for breakfast. In the morning, I take out and set on the counter for 30-45 minutes for them to come to room temp and rise a little more. I baked for 17 minutes. As soon as they come out, (as other reviewers suggested) I flip the dish over onto a cookie sheet that I have covered with parchment paper (the cinnamon stuff is a ooey gooey mess!!). Let sit for 5 minutes, then flip back over and ice. Oh, and as another reviewer suggested, I beat the cream cheese, butter, and conf. sugar for 12 minutes while the rolls are baking. These are absolutely gorgeous, delicious, and makes you look like a super star in the kitchen! Well worth the time!!
Yummy recipe! We loved the taste of the rolls. Definately a keeper! I made these a few times and found that the key to these are as soon as you take them out of the oven you need to flip the pan over which allows all of the filling drippings to recoat the rolls. This prevents the filling from running out of the rolls. Also, the key to the frosting is whipping the butter, cream cheese and powder suger for at least 12 minutes, then at the end add the extracts. It sounds like a lot but it is well worth it!
A tip for the problem of the filling running out the bottom of the rolls--flip the pan over after removing it from the oven onto a lined cookie sheet. Whatever ran out should run back over the rolls. I think I saw this tip given for another cinnamon rolls recipe here on the site. I think its how they prepare them at the Cinnabon chain as well. I like mine with pecans.
