Cinnabon + Cheesecake = PURE HEAVEN! I can't wait to make this one! I just got to find out where I can get the Cinnabon's (it just wont be the same with regular cinnamon buns - I think anyway)!

Ingredients

CHEESECAKE:
8 mini
cinnabons or 1 pkg (1 lb. 2 oz.) cinnamon buns, halved vertically
4 - 8 oz. pkg
cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 c
sugar
5 large
eggs
1 - 8 oz. pkg
sour cream
1/4 c
all purpose flour
1 Tbsp
pure vanilla extract
TOPPING:
3 oz
cream cheese
3 Tbsp
butter, room temperature
1 c
confectioners' sugar
1 Tbsp
milk
CINNAMON-SUGAR DRIZZLE:
2 Tbsp
dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp
butter, room temperature
1/4 tsp
cinnamon, ground

Directions Step-By-Step

1
CHEESECAKE: Position racks in center & lower third of oven. Place large roasting pan on lower rack; fill halfway with water. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat 9" springform pan with cooking spray. Line bottom of pan with buns, cut size down.
2
On medium high speed, beat cream cheese & sugar until light & fluffy, 2 - 3 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add sour cream, flour & vanilla; beat until combined. Pour over buns in pan. Bake on center rack 1 hour or until center jiggles slightly. Turn oven off. Leave cheesecake in oven with door closed 1 hour. Remove & cool completely on rack. Refrigerate overnight.
3
TOPPING: On medium high, beat cream cheese & butter until blended, 1 - 2 minutes. Gradually beat in sugar, then milk until light & fluffy, 2 - 3 minutes. Reserve.
4
DRIZZLE: In small microwave safe bowl, mix brown sugar, butter & cinnamon until blended. Microwave on HIGH in 15 second intervals, stirring, until mixture is melted & smooth.
5
Spread topping over cheesecake top. Pipe thin line of drizzle in concentric circles over topping. Using toothpick, pull lines through drizzle, alternating directions, to create pattern.

No, you do not bake prior to lining the pan with them. And the ones at Cinnabon are already cooked - but maybe you can buy them uncooked - you'll have to ask them.

Do you bake the cinnamon rolls prior to lining the 9 inch pan? I know you can go to Cinnabon and buy them but are those cooked or uncooked?
