How to Make Easy Cinnamon Rolls


  1. Roll out thawed bread dough on a floured surface into a rectangle shape. The thinner you roll out the dough the larger your rectangle.
  2. Spread 1/2 stick softened butter over entire surface of rolled dough. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon (to taste) and cover entire surface of dough rectangle with this mixture - I like a thick mixture.
  3. Starting at long end roll tightly jelly roll style ending with seam on bottom. Cut into 1 inch slices using a serrated knife. Place slices barely touching on a greased baking sheet. Place on top of stove and let sit 20-30 minutes until dough has risen. Bake in preheated 350* oven for 15-20 mins or until golden brown and dough feels cooked to the touch. Remove and let cool slightly in pan before frosting with cream cheese icing if desired
  4. Cream cheese icing: Mix cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and juice in mixing bowl. Blend with electric beaters until well mixed and creamy. Frost cinnamon rolls. Enjoy!
