Cinnamon Rolls w/ Cream Cheese Frosting

These cinnamon rolls are the perfect combination of gooey deliciousness! What are you waiting for!?! Let’s get started…

INGREDIENTS

Dough:

4-5 Cups Flour

2 Tablespoons Yeast

1/3 Cup Sugar

1 Teaspoon Salt

1 1/2 Cups Warm Milk (110°F)

1/2 Stick Melted Butter

1 Egg

Filling:

1 Cup Brown Sugar

3 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

1 Cup Softened Butter (2 Sticks)

Frosting:

8 Oz Cream Cheese – Room Temp

8 Tbsp (1 Stick) Butter

1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar

3 Tbsp Milk

2 tsp Vanilla Extract

DIRECTIONS

In the bowl of a mixer, combine 3 cups flour, 2 Tbsp yeast, 1/3 cup sugar, and 1 tsp salt.

Combine milk and butter in a separate container – Heat to 110°F

With the mixer’s whisk attachment and the mixer on a slow speed – pour the heated milk and butter into the flour mixture. Once well combined add 1 egg. Continue Mixing until smooth. Remove whisk attachment and replace with a dough hook

Add remaining flour 1 cup at a time until a soft dough forms. Dough is ready when it is soft and pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm location for 30 min (dough should be doubled in size)

Punch down dough – lay out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a rectangle. With your fingers spread the butter (must be room temp) evenly over the dough. Sprinkle 3 Tbsp ground cinnamon and 1 cup brown sugar evenly over the dough.

Roll up the dough and cut into 1.5″ – 2″ pieces

Place rolls into a shallow baking dish. Cover and allow to rise for 30 min.

In a 350°F oven, bake approx. 25 min or until light brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.

FROSTING :

In a mixing bowl combine 8 oz cream cheese with 8 Tbsp butter (1 stick), 2 tsp vanilla extract, and 3 Tbsp milk – beat until smooth. Add powdered sugar ½ cup at a time and beat until smooth and creamy. Frost cinnamon rolls while still warm.
