Oh, Cinnamon Rolls

I usually use the same recipe for sweet rolls: the one from my grandma to my dad to me. I decided to try something different this time. THE RECIPE from allrecipes described this as "an easy alternative to buying those famous cinnamon rolls in the mall. They taste exactly the same, and the dough is made in the bread machine." I can testify to that!

This is going to be my go-to recipe for cinnamon rolls from now on! Some of the reviews said that the frosting was too sweet - it was perfect. The one thing that made them extra good was not overcooking them. They stay nice and gooey soft that way. I loved them, my family loved them, and my friends loved being my neighbors.

Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, and Walnut goodness

Only gets better with frosting

Cinnamon Rolls
{This recipes instructs to use a bread maker, but I used my kitchen aid. I mixed it all, placed in a greased bowl, and let it rise for an 1 hour (or until doubled). It worked great. Then you follow the rest of the instructions as listed.}

  • 1/4 cup warm water
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 (3.4 ounce) pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
    1 cup warm milk
    1 egg, room temperature
    1 Tbsp white sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    4 cups bread flour
    1 (.25 ounce) pkg active dry yeast

    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup brown sugar
    4 tsp cinnamon
    3/4 cup chopped pecans

    1/2 (8 ounce) pkg cream cheese, softened
    1/4 cup butter, softened
    1 cup confectioners sugar
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 1/2 tsp milk

    In the pan of your bread machine, combine water, melted butter, vanilla pudding, warm milk, egg, 1 Tbsp sugar, salt, bread flour, and yeast. Set machine to Dough cycle; press start.

    When Dough cycle has finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 17x10 inch rectangle. Spread with softened butter. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over dough.

    Roll up dough, beginning with the long side. Slice into 16 one inch {I probably did at least 1 1/2 inch} slices and place in a 9x13 buttered pan {I used my large cookie sheet instead} Let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. While rolls bake, mix together cream cheese, softened butter, confectioners sugar, vanilla, and milk. Remove rolls from oven and top with frosting.
