Cinnamon Rolls!

Who doesn't like a hot out of the oven gooey cinnamon roll drizzled in maple icing or vanilla, whichever you like?

That's what was for breakfast today and oh does my house smell like Fall.....



1 loaf frozen white bread dough, thawed in refrigerator
flour, for dusting surface

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbls ground cinnamon
2/3 stick butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 15-in. x 7-inch rectangle.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

Spread 2/3 cup softened butter over dough and then evenly sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.


Starting at the long side, roll up dough as for a jelly roll. Cut roll into slices and divide among greased round baking pans. Set aside in a warm place and allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.


Depending on how thick you cut the slices, you should get around 16 to 24 rolls. I got 24 out of mine this morning but sometimes I get less.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top.

1 cup powered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (I use Maple extract on mine)
1-2 tablespoons cold water (if you want it thinner use more water)

Mix sugar, vanilla and water. Drizzle over warm rolls.


Cream Cheese Icing:
1 stick unsalted butter,softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix ingredients with an electric mixer. Spread evenly over warm rolls.


  1. Those look amazing! I've never thought to use frozen bread dough. I'm going to have to try this recipe this weekend

  2. Aren't the maple flavored cinnamon rolls the best? Last time I made them we were out of vanilla so I substituted maple and they were delicious.

  3. Mmmm... I can smell them from here! I make cinnamon rolls once a year... for Christmas morning. We always look forward to them with a good cup of coffee.

  4. Oh my goodness, I'm going to have to whip me up a batch of these. I love the idea of using frozen dough. My husband would be so thankful for these delicious goodies.
