We don't really get Cinnabon here, but I've always wanted to try their cinnamon rolls, so I'm so glad for this recipe! It definitely takes longer than 2 hours, more like 4, but they were totally worth the wait! Gorgeously soft, fluffy rolls and a tangy sweet frosting. Just delicious!

I made these almost exactly as written, the only differences were that I used quick yeast and only had 3/4 of an ounce instead of the whole ounce and I added about an extra cup of flour while the dough was in the mixer because it wasn't setting up to be rolled out. My friend who was assisting me said that they weren't done after the 20 minute mark, but I insisted that the directions said "Do NOT overbake" and pulled them out of the oven--PERFECT. They were baked through, not dry, soft and chewy. These came out perfect, just like Cinnabon.

These are SO GOOD, it should be illegal!
The weird thing is, I halved the serving size to 10 and i still came up with 18 buns..and they were BIG! I did have to add more flour over and above the 3 cups (for 10) - my guess is around 6-7 cups of flour.

They turn out AMAZING!

Heads up: do NOT bake these on the bottom level of your oven - if you have too many to fit on 1 tray, bake them in shifts or else you will get burned bottoms...err..I'm referring to the cinnabons... ;)

I LOVE this recipe...and so does my family! The dough is very soft and a little hard to work with, but the outcome is well worth the effort.

My husband had purchased a tube of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls made with Cinnabon cinnamon. They had been in the refrigerator for sometime... I noticed that tomorrow was the expiration date, so why waste them! Of course there are only eight in a tube and I quickly made a yummy crumb topping of real butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar to give them some extra homemade flavor. After I baked them I spread the icing that was provided and it was such a joke, thin and limited. Therefore, I went online and found this copycat Cinnabon cream cheese frosting recipe; I reduced the original amount by half (since I only had to frost eight) and added a small amount of lemon juice to it. It was absolutely delectable and every cinnamon roll had a very generous amount of whipped heaven on it. Thank you so much for sharing. You made my short cut baking taste so delicious, time-consuming and completely homemade no one noticed that I slightly cheated!

NOT A RECIPE FOR THE NOVICE BAKER!!!! i haven't baked that much, so this recipe was challenging. First the frosting recipe, i had so much frosting left over after coating all of the rolls with it. Also forgot before it was to late that confectioners sugar is powdered sugar and i used granulated. (most recipes i use say confectioners powdered sugar.) so i must be not smart enough for this recipe. The directions were not clear i added all of the sugar in step 3 thus making the dough way to sticky i had to go to the store for more flour. they didn't taste bad they were still good i think ill try a different recipe, one that spells it out for you, for the not so baking savvy such as i
