Update on February 16, 2008. I just wanted to say that I followed this recipe exactly and found that I only needed the 6 cups of flour and found the amount of frosting perfect. I will definitely make this cinnabon recipe my favorite cinnamon roll recipe. Follow Lennie's directions and you will be rewarded with beautiful cinnabons. These are delicious. I am out of practice with yeast and my rolls did not rise because I killed the yeast with too hot of water. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and I will make these better next time! I highly recommend these cinnamon rolls.

Absolutely Love these rolls. Made a batch for work with real butter and they demolished them. Made some more for a party at my house and they couldn't get enough. Would suggest if one has the time on the second rising to let the dough rise longer. Makes for a softer and lighter roll.

Delicious and wonderful. I made these a few days in advance and froze them. The only problem I had was there weren't any leftover :-(

GREAT!!! These are really good tasting. I even made a double batch and froze the prepared (unbaked) rolls in the freezer until we ran out of the first batch. Then a few days later, when we were ready for more, I thawed them out overnight and cooked them for breakfast. They tasted excellent. Next time I am going to make 3 batches and prepare most to freeze. I love cinnamon rolls, but don't always have the time to make them, so this will do the trick.

I'm a newbie on this site and this is my first review. Although I know better than to try to make anything involving yeast (I'm not a very good cook), I was looking for an icing recipe to put on some cinnamon biscuits I made last night. Decided to try this Cream Cheese Frosting one and I am sure glad I did!! The only thing I did differently was to substitute a tablespoon or so of orange juice for the milk - which turned out really yummy too. Even though I'm not a huge frosting fan, I couldn't part with the leftover frosting I had and it's now sitting in the fridge waiting to be used for something else! Thanks so much for sharing this, Lennie!

Wow! These were exceptional. I just pulled three cookie sheets full of HUGE cinnamon rolls out of the oven. Thanks for the recipe!

Great recipe! And they're really huge! The frosting makes a big difference. And it's really best to eat them right out of the oven. :)

Excellent!!!!!!! These were the best cinnamon rolls I have ever tasted. They truly tasted exactly like Cinnabon's. They are worth every minute I spent in the kitchen.

Wow, this recipe is dangerously close to the mall-variety! Wonderfully soft and cinnamony! I had to add about 1 cup more flour to make the dough manageable. I shared the rolls I baked with my family and about 4 friends...they all agreed that this is the best cinnamon roll recipe ever!
