    Cream Cheese Icing


    1. 1
      Add the first 7 ingredients, in the order listed, to a bread machine baking pan. Insert pan into bread machine and start the "dough" cycle on machine. Process dough according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    2. 2
      When the dough is finished, turn it out onto floured rolling board and allow it to sit for ten minutes. When ready, roll the dough out into a 16" wide and 21" long rectangle, with a dough thickness of about 1/4 inch. Allow to sit again.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, combine the next two ingredients(brown sugar and cinnamon). Stir well until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Then, spread the softened butter over the surface of the dough and sprinkle cinnamon sugar mixture evenly over the dough surface. Use all of the cinnamon sugar and completely coat the dough.
    4. 4
      Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll up the sheet of dough jelly-roll fashion along the 16" wide side of the rectangle (lengthwise). Then, cut the dough roll into 12 slices.
    5. 5
      Spray a 9” by 13” baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange these 12 rolls into the baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled. Place into the preheated oven. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
    6. 6
      While the rolls bake, combine the last 5 ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir until everything is well blended. The mixture should form a thick icing.
    7. 7
      When the rolls are fully cooked, remove the baking pan from the oven. Frost the rolls immediately with the icing, while they are still in the pan. Then, allow the rolls to cool until they are able to be handled.
    8. 8
      For best results, the rolls should be served within 30 minutes of baking.
    9. 9
      Makes 12 cinnamon rolls.

      I didn't see where anyone posted this hint. Instead of using a knife to cut the dough, I use unwaxed, unflavored dental floss to cut the rolled up dough. Use about a 12 inch long piece. Slide it under the dough and just cross your floss, and pull quickly. It will slice through the dough without changing its shape. I keep a small container of floss in my kitchen drawer to uses like splitting dough all the time.

      Delicious! Very like Cinnabons--DH says even better! The cooking time will result in a slightly undercooked roll, so if you don't like that, add a few minutes. Also, if you lo-o-ove the ooey, gooey cream cheesy frosting on the Cinnabons, you'll want to double or even triple the icing recipe. It made enough for our taste, but just barely. The roll itself was tasty, too, and fairly easy to work. I found that the easiest way to roll it out was by alternating rolling and stretching the dough. The filling was excellent. I used 2 T of regular China cassia cinnamon and just under 1/2 T extra-strong Vietnamese cassia cinnamon. Thanks for posting, JCrosgey!

      I had been thinking of making a cinnamon bun for a long time and finally tried it with fantastic results. They rose beautifully and were full of flavour. I made 16 smaller buns in a 20x30cm pan and left out the icing altogether. They were wonderful plain with a glass of cold milk.
