How to Make cream cheese cinnamon rolls

Step-by-Step

  1. For the dough add the flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg,2TB oil or butter, and combine until crumbly. Add milk one tablespoon at a time. You don't want your mixture to be too wet
  2. For the filling, cream together cream cheese, 2 1/2 TB oil/butter, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp cinnamon
  3. Roll dough out on a flour surface. You may need to add more flour to reduce sticking. Roll dough to about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Spread cream cheese mixture onto dough and spread evenly. Roll dough and cut to whatever size you would like. (6-7) rolls is what I normally get. Bake at 400 for about 18-21 minutes
  4. Icing isn't mandatory but highly reccommend. I use a simply recipe of 2 cups powdered sugar, splash of vanilla and 3-4 table spoons milk
