"I've been DYING to make cinnamon rolls and when I had some leftover cream cheese to use up, I was ecstatic to find this recipe! And these are just simply AMAZING!! I added a teaspoon or two of wheat gluten to my flour to help with the rise, and probably gave them more than an hour or even two of resting time. Boy did they rise high! They are delicious, even sinfully so! So very soft and packed with the delicious filling. There's no shortage of anything here! I made my rolls smaller and ended up with almost 2 dozen, rolling, cutting and freezing the second dozen for a future batch. Everyone LOVED these rolls. With or without the icing, they are wonderful. I have tons of frosting left though so I'll probably end up covering everything with the yummy stuff! Thanks so much!"
"I've done this several times with 1/2 cup of butter instead of a third. They always taste great and I will never buy cinnamon rolls again. You can even freeze them prior to baking and then leave them in the oven overnight to rise so they are ready to bake first thing in the morning. I also use a different frosting since my husband doesn't like cream cheese."
"These turned out awesome! The rolls were very moist and the frosting wasn't too sweet. I took these to work and everybody loved them! Thanks, I will definitely be making these again! Update: I made these again today, but did an orange-roll version. Used 1/2 c milk, 1/2 c orange juice and 1 1/2 tsp. orange zest in the dough. I used 1/4 white sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, & 1/4 c butter for the filling and added 1 tbsp. OJ & 1 tbsp. orange zest to the frosting. Delicious!"
"ohh maaa gawd!! these were sooo good. Tasted just like Cinnabon. I didn't have cream cheese, so I used mascarpone in it's place with worked perfectly. These were perfection."
"These really are simple to make, and are the best cinnamon rolls! It takes me just under 3 hours, start to finish, and I'm always impressed at how easy they are to create. 6 stars if I could give it!"
"I have made countless cinnamon roll recipes. THIS is definitely my new favorite. So easy and soooo delicious. The dough was light and airy but still had a good bite and chew. The filling was perfect. The icing was perfect. I followed the advice of other reviewers and mixed the filling ingredients (butter, sugar and cinnamon) in my kitchen aid. Then just spread it on the dough like a thick icing. No more messy counter! And this also ensured the filling was evenly distributed. Great trick. Another great trick that came from Alton Brown is...during the second rise put the pan of rolls in the oven and a place a pan of boiling water under them. This helps the rolls rise nicely. Be sure to remove them before preheating the oven though! I baked them at 350 for 17 minutes. Ohhh and I halved the recipe and baked them in a 9 inch square baking pan. I roll them out thinly and cut them into one inch rolls. This gives me 10 cinnamon rolls. OMG. So good. Such a treat! Now if we could just get the calories out of these that would be great! ;-)"
"addeded pecans to the filling"
"Superb! Fantastic! Delicious! Tastes just like the ooey gooey pillsburry cinnamon rolls that I love so much. I also made smaller rolls and got a double recipe out of this. One is in the freezer. I'll take it out, let it rise and then bake it. The other was gobbled up within seconds! Thank you. My new go-to cinnamon roll recipe!"
"The cream cheese icing is phenomal, and I think that's what sets these cinnamon rolls apart from others! I made two batches in two weeks for me, my husband and toddler. I do believe my son ate more than anybody! :) He woke up asking for "a bun" every morning and after every nap, long after they were gone. For some reason, both batches took twice as long to cook, though I tried to fix the problem on the second round. I ended up lightly covering the buns with aluminum foil once they were browned, and the extra time in the oven didn't harm them. Definitely a favorite!"
"These were easy and amazingly yummy! Very very very rich! Yum!"
"This is a super recipe. I think the bread flour is the key! I do a fair amount of baking and this recipe really worked well as written. Two additional tips -- I rolled out my dough between two sheets of parchment, because I didn't want to add too much flour (this is a somewhat stickier dough, so that's a potential challenge). Also I didn't want them to be too squished together so I separated them into one square 8x8 and a 9x13. They had plenty of room. Can't wait to make them again."
"These turned out awesome! I even messed up the first batch by not having them close enough together, and they were still great. Second batch was heavenly!"
"Everyone loved these rolls. With or without the icing, they are delicious. Thank you!"
"First time ever making these, super easy and super yummy. Highly Recommend."
"Amazing!!! The bread machine does half the work and the rolls turn our beautiful and taste fantastic. We followed the recipe exactly. All natural ingredients and taste so much better than Cinnabon or any other store bought cinnamon roll. Love it Love it!!!!"
"I've made this recipe numerous times! A total keeper! My kids love these!"
"I took these to work and everyone liked them. I frosted with my own maple frosting. These aren't quite as gooey as my normal cinnamon roll recipe but the bread machine simplifies the process."
"Very nice dough. The filling was too mild, it needs lots of more cinnamon & butter to suit our taste."
