Fantastic recipe! I cut out half a cup of sugar in the frosting and it was still plenty sweet. Might cut out a little more next time.

Definitely a great cinnamon roll. I don't think I have had better, anywhere. Loved the frosting and the rolls are wonderful. I did only use 1/2 c. butter in filling and added Glazed Nuts before rolling. Mine did take longer to raise but they are so worth the wait. I only had French Vanilla pudding mix so used that.

These cinnamon rolls were wonderful! I love the texture and flavor the pudding (I used fat free/sugar free) gave the dough when baked. I used a really soft butter and my cinn/brown sugar/butter mixture oozed when I rolled it and I had a mess. Next time I might spread the soft butter on the rolled out dough and then sprinkle on the cinn/brown sugar mixture before rolling and that might help the issue. Definitely LOVED these rolls. I just made simple powdered sugar/vanilla butter flavoring/milk icing. Thanks for a great recipe!

Just like Cinnabon, but much easier than the copy-cat recipe I found. Everything was great, but I couldn't figure out how to get 16 rolls in a 13x9 pan. I could only fit 12, and even then there wasn't enough room for rising, and the middle ones were slightly doughy. I put some in a round cake pan and they turned out great. Also, parchment paper helps with clean-up and makes them non-stick. All in all a WONDERFUL tasting roll and easy to make! These will become a regular treat in my house!! Thanks!!

These are awesome! I have been looking for a great cinnamon roll recipe, and this is the one! If you have problems with it rising you might try a little less sugar. Also, soft and lots of frosting is the way to go with me!

Awesome recipe. The dough was so soft. I spread some butter over the rolled dough and sprinkled brown sugar and cinnamon on top. They turned out perfect. I did use the sour cream and I think that took it to another level. Everyone loved them. So easy with my bread machine. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

just tried these about a week ago, the dough was awesome, bread maker did pretty much all of it for more. i'm a sore loser when it comes to rolling it out, so that was mostly my fault. but once i got it going, and that frosting, oh my gosh, yummy. this will probably be the only bread maker cinnamon roll recipe i'll use

Yummy! - I think you've created a WONDERFUL recipe, thank you for sharing!
I made a couple of small adjustments out of necessity and the rolls turned out big, fluffy, and delicious.
First off I had no vanilla pudding so I used pumpkin spice pudding- Yum!
I used my stand mixer and formed the rolls immediately when done mixing. I let them rise lightly covered with plastic wrap for about an hour before baking. They were perfect in texture so I don't know if a first rise is really necessary. I did think they were just a bit too "buttery" for my taste so I'm going to skip brushing them with butter before sprinkling on the extra brown sugar. I thought adding a few chopped pecans or raisins to the filling would be good next time. I had several leftover and packed them in lunches throughout the week. They were delicious reheated in the microwave for 30 seconds.
