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

These are hands down the best cinnamon rolls ever! And I thought my grandma's were good! I now make the best rolls in the family! These make quite a few rolls, but my husband and I managed to eat them all ourselves. I agree with other posts, you definately need more like 7 cups of flour and also, there's no need to measure the cinnamon, is there such as thing as too much cinnamon. The dough doesn't double in size when it rises, so don't wait around for that like I did. It increases by about 50%. Yes, these take some time, but they aren't difficult and the results are well worth it!

The cinnamon rolls were delicious but the icing was a bit too heavy on the cream cheese.

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.
