This recipe is fabulous! The dough is so sweet.This comes from the Allrecipes website. I can't believe this isn't posted here so I thought I'd put it here for safekeeping. My husband thinks these are the greatest thing I make. Sometimes I add raisins (his favorite). Rising time isn't included in the time but it takes about 3 hrs. total time.

THIS IS THE ONE. Because it is so popular (and delicious) other fakers have uploaded cinnabon's of a similar name - but with questionable ingredients such as: what flour (yuck) and pudding (blechch). Want a perfect Cinnabon bun? Here you go. When I first found this recipe it was the only one on this site. Now I have to sift through a bunch of icky ones to find this one. It's FABULOUS. It is the only cinnamon bun recipe I use, ever. It's perfect!

Directions See How It's Made
- Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
- After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
