You haven't had cinnamon rolls until you've tried these. They are generously layered with cinnamon and have a sinfully delicious cream cheese frosting.

  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) package dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup raisins, walnuts, or pecans (optional)

Cream cheese icing:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 1
    DOUGH INSTRUCTIONS: Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Add the sugar, butter, salt, eggs, and flour. Mix together well.

    Lightly dust a clean surface with flour and knead the dough into a large ball, keeping your hands dusted with flour if the dough is sticky. Put the dough into a bowl. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm place (a warm oven top or in front of a space heater works well) for an hour.
  • 3
    Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface until it is approximately 21” long by 16” wide and 1/4” thick.
  • 4
    Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  • 5
    FILLING INSTRUCTIONS: Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins and nuts in a bowl. Spread the softened butter over the surface of the dough then sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the surface.
  • 6
    Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough into a log—like a jellyroll. Cut the dough into 2” sections and place on a lightly greased baking pan.
  • 7
    Bake the cinnamon rolls in the oven for 10 minutes, or until they turn light golden brown.
  • 8
    CREAM CHEESE ICING INSTRUCTIONS: Combine all the ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer. Allow the cinnamon rolls to cool slightly before spreading them generously with icing.
