  • Stand mixer with dough hook attachment (optional)
  • Rolling Pin
  • Pastry brush9x13 inch baking dish
  • Kitchen towel or plastic wrap
  • Small mixing bowl (for icing)Hand mixer or whisk


Ingredients for Dough:

  • 1 cup warm milk about 110°F or 45°C
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast 1 packet
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Ingredients for Filling:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

Ingredients for Cream Cheese Icing:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk as needed for desired consistency


Prepare the Dough:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm milk and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until the yeast is foamy.
  • Add the granulated sugar, melted butter, eggs, salt, and 4 cups of flour to the bowl. Mix until a soft dough forms. If using a stand mixer, knead the dough with the dough hook attachment for about 5-7 minutes. If kneading by hand, transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes until smooth and elastic, adding more flour as needed.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Prepare the Filling:

  • In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon until well combined. Set aside.

Assemble the Cinnamon Rolls:

  • Punch down the risen dough and transfer it to a floured surface. Roll out the dough into a rectangle, about 16x20 inches in size.
  • Spread the cinnamon sugar filling evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  • Starting from one long edge, tightly roll up the dough into a log. Pinch the seam to seal.
  • Use a sharp knife to slice the log into 12 equal-sized rolls.

Bake the Cinnamon Rolls:

  • Place the cinnamon rolls in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish, leaving space between each roll for them to expand.
  • Cover the dish with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let the rolls rise for another 30-45 minutes, until puffy.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Once preheated, bake the cinnamon rolls for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

Prepare the Cream Cheese Icing:

  • In a small mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and continue to beat until well combined. If the icing is too thick, add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.

Frost the Cinnamon Rolls:

  • Once the cinnamon rolls are baked and slightly cooled, spread the cream cheese icing evenly over the warm rolls.

Serve and Enjoy:

  • Serve the cinnamon rolls warm and enjoy the indulgent combination of soft, gooey dough and sweet cinnamon filling, topped with creamy icing.


These homemade cinnamon rolls are sure to become a favorite treat for special occasions or whenever you crave a bit of sweetness and comfort. Share them with friends and family, or savor them all to yourself for a truly blissful experience.
