This is a great recipe! I used to make these all the time,after rolling out and adding filling.Roll up and cut ( with dental floss) . Then spray a cooking sheet with non-stick oil, arrange slices on sheet,put in freezer.When frozen solid take off sheet and put them in a Ziploc bag.Freeze.

Make icing and freeze in small Ziploc bowls.

The night before you want the rolls in the am,spray a pan put in amount of rolls you want.Cover with sprayed plastic wrap.Set out that night,in the am they will have risen.Put a container of icing in the fridge the night before.

That am when you get up preheat oven,then while you are dressing the smell of Cinnamon Rolls fills the house...yummmmm! After baking ,let sit for a minute than cover with icing.

Make once and enjoy these anytime!

These rolls are delicious no doubt, but if you are looking for a cinnabon clone then you may need to try a different recipe. With the amount of wheat flour in this it gives it a unique flavor. Delicious? Yes! Cinnabon Clone? No

i just made the cinnabon and it came out great!!!!! i used instant yeast instead of active dry yeast. i love the recipe. in the future, i would use 1/4 less butter for the filling and instead of melting the butter, i would just spread the soften butter onto the dough and spread the sugar/cinnamon mixture onto the dough. it provides an easier way to roll and to keep all the sugar mixture in place. LOVED IT!!!!

These cinnamon rolls are excellent. They are extremely tender and moist. There is not one bite that doesn't have a juicy, buttery, brown sugary, cinnamony flavor on it! Since I was already loading up on calories, I decided to frost them with a cream cheese icing as follows: 4 ounces cream cheese, softented; 1/2 cup butter softened; 1 1/2 t. vanilla extract; and 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar. Mix all those ingredients with a hand mixer and spread on rolls hot out of the oven. Absolutely sinful! These took time to make but were worth it. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Andrea. I think these are better than Cinnabon!

These are very good! I did cut back on the filling by using only 1 cup of butter melted and decreasing the sugar to 1 1/2 cups as well as adding the clone frosting to the ones I made. They were enjoyed by all.

These were so good we had to freeze the majority to save ourselves from eating them all. Luckily I have a pregnant friend I was able to give most of them too. I've made them once since then and they were just as good. What a wonderful recipe!
