  • Author: Laura
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x



For the Filling:

For the Icing:


  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the warm milk, yeast, and sugar. Lightly whisk together, then allow to sit for 6 minutes to activate the yeast.
  3. Add the egg, salt, and butter. Whisk to combine. You mainly want to break up the egg. 
  4. Place the dough hook on the mixture. Add in the flour. Knead the dough on LOW for 2 minutes. Increase speed to Medium-High to knead for 5 more minutes. The dough should be soft and pliable. Adjust with milk (if too dry) or flour (if too sticky). The dough should pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Before rolling our the dough, spray the area with non-stick cooking spray where you plan to roll out the dough .Roll out the dough 12″x18″ rectangle, about 1/4″ thick.
  7. Spread the 1/2 cup softened butter evenly over the dough. 
  8. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the buttered dough.
  9. Roll up the dough tightly from the long side.
  10. Cut the cinnamon rolls using a serrated knife or unflavored dental floss to be 1 1/2″ – 2″ thick slices.
  11. Place into a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap.
  12. You oven should be preheated to 200 degrees now. Turn the oven OFF and place the cinnamon rolls in the heated oven to rise 20 minutes.
  13. After 20 minutes, REMOVE the Saran Wrap. Quickly pour the heavy cream over the cinnamon rolls. Then place back into the oven uncovered.
  14. Leaving them in the oven, turn the oven ON to 375 degrees. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until brown on top.
  15. For the Icing: Beat the softened cream cheese and butter together with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.
  16. Add the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Beat until soft and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes..
  17. Let the cinnamon rolls cool for 2-3 minutes before adding the icing. I like to give them 10 minutes to cool so the frosting doesn’t completely melt. Makes 12 servings.


To make overnight cinnamon rolls – Make the cinnamon rolls and get them to the point of the when they are rolled out, cut up and put in the pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until morning. In the morning, pull them out of the refrigerator. They may have doubled in size in the fridge overnight. If they have, let them sit for 30 minutes to get the chill off, then bake. If they did not rise in the fridge overnight, allow them to rise at room temperature. Plan about at least an hour for this. Then pour on the cream and let them bake.
