We went to the state fair a while back and I bought me a big fat cinnamon roll and they are really delicious and moist and sweet. I know it is fatty but it was good. I made them for Christmas and my family loves it.

Ingredients

1
loaf frozen white bread dough, thawed in refrigerator
flour, for dusting surface
filling:
1 c
packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp
ground cinnamon
2/3 c
butter, softened
icing:
6 Tbsp
butter, softened
2 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
5 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to form a 15 by 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 edge, roll up dough as for a jelly roll. Cut roll into 16 slices and then set aside in a warm place and allow dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Divide rolls among 2 lightly buttered round baking pans. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on top. While the rolls are baking, combine the icing ingredients with an electric mixer until fluffy. Frost the warm rolls with the icing. Serve warm.
