Outstanding!!!!! We can't quit eating them. I had to freeze some so we wouldn't get sick. Ha Ha. Easy to make. I used reg. instant vanilla pudding. What a difference it makes in the dough. Very light and airy. This is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.
These are the BEST! Just a few notes: The dough is sticky, sticky, sticky so be prepared to use massive amounts of flour when you roll it out so it won't stick and make a mess when you try to roll it up. Second, I'd recommend halving or even quartering the dough once you've got it all rolled out as directed. Trying to roll the rolls up was a 2-man job because it was so long, and even then we didn't get the rolls as tight as I wanted. Last, definitely halve the frosting recipe. I rarely find anything "too sweet or too rich" for my tastes, and this one, if I'd used all the frosting, would have been way over the top. You will LOVE these rolls--this recipe's a keeper!
This is got to be the best cinnamon roll I ever tried! Perfect in every way, so light and fluffy. I could only eat a half of one of them big rolls, they are so filling! Yum... Thanks Mike B....
Lennie, I will admit I did not make the cinnabon rolls but I did make the icing. I used another recipe as we find cinnabons too sweet for our taste but the icing just right. After reading all the other recipes on this site, I found yours to be the most within what I found reason. I did not need enough icing for 5 dozen rolls I actually was able to ice 2 dozen rolls more that amply. My family and I truly enjoyed this one. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much!! Best cinnamon rolls we have had in a while! By far! They did take about 4 hours in total, with the rising, as others have said, though. I did add an additional stick of butter to the frosting and blend it with the blender for 12 minutes, as someone else suggested. And this did make the frosting just like Cinnabon's :) it is the first time I've worked with yeast/rising dough and I found it easy by looking up specifics on how to punch the dough and how to know it was done after the first and second rising online and so worth it! Here are the sources I used for that info: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SQc7aVtCTUE And http://redstaryeast.com/yeast-baking-lessons/baking-steps-guide/proofing-ripe-test-second-rise/
Soooo wonderful. Today is a rainy and cold day so I wanted to bake something I had never done before and I'm so happy I choose this recipe. It made a whole bunch of rolls that I shared with my neighbors. My kids, father and husband are very happy campers. Thanks.

Is this ALL it calls for? And HOW MUCH are the MALL ONES??????
KILLER .. truly killer to this 2011 gal that HAS to lose weight!!!! lol
absolutely divine. i could not believe i baked cinnabon, and did such a great job. they are a hit.
These were the BEST homemade cinnamon rolls! I followed the recipe exactly although it did take MUCH longer for them to rise then it stated in the recipe. I will make a few changes next time. The icing was a little too much for my family so I will cut that in half. Also I think that they need a little more of a cinnamon flavor, so I am going to try mixing a little cinnamon in the dough and a little more then the recipe called for in the filling. Can't wait to make them again!
This recipe is really good, but it requires a lot more flour then it calls for. I had to use almost 7 1/2 cups and the dough was still slightly sticky. I did use regular vanilla pudding instead of the vegan so that might have made a difference. Dough baked is very light and excellent for pecan rolls too. I also cut the dough in half and made the rolls smaller, cutting one inch slices instead.
