Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls - Marty's Musings

Our family has developed many traditions throughout the years.

These include cow day, our Christmas Village display and Instant Russian Tea.

Thanksgiving Day is filled with all our family gathered around the table enjoying the standard turkey and dressing with cranberry apple casserole and all the rest.

Thanksgiving evening finds us hunting down and decorating the perfect Christmas tree while enjoying leftovers and the tradition of the blessing jar.

I’m sure you’re asking, why is she talking about Thanksgiving in the middle of January?

Because today I want to share a recipe that  I believe will definitely become a tradition in our home.

These Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls (with original recipe found here) were a last minute, late night Christmas Eve addition and they were amazing!

We’ve done several different things for Christmas morning breakfast in the past, from monkey bread to an all out country breakfast.

Now only our two teenagers our home to open presents on Christmas morning so late night on Christmas Eve I decided I wanted something special for the morning.

And here it is! Yes, these cinnamon rolls will make you lick your lips in delight. They’re making me hungry even as I write this post!

The secret was the bread machine dough, preparing it the night before and leaving it in the refrigerator overnight. Christmas morning all I had to do was bake them and make the cream cheese frosting. Amazing!

  6. 1 tsp salt
  7. 3 tsp yeast
Filling
  1. 4 tbs butter, melted
  2. 1 1/3 cup brown sugar

Icing
  1. 2 1/2 oz cream cheese, softened
  2. 3 tbs milk
  3. 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  4. 1 tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Add the dough ingredients to the bread machine in the order listed and run on dough cycle.
  2. After this cycle is finished, roll the dough into a large rectangle.
  3. Mix 4 tbs melted butter, 1 1/3 cup brown sugar and 2 tbs cinnamon together and spread over dough.
  4. Roll up length-wise and cut into 12-15 rolls and place in two greased round cake pans.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. While dough is baking, mix together cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar and vanilla. (I used a whisk.)

Notes

  2. The dough can be covered with plastic wrap, stored in refrigerator overnight and then baked in the morning.

  1. These look delicious!!

  2. I have pinned numerous recipes for homemade cinnamon rolls but I’ve never followed through because of the work involved. I’m thinking I can commit to making these since the bread machine does most of the work. And you had me at cream cheese icing. Remind me to tell you my Cinnabon story one day!

    • They really turned out great, and I was surprised because it was totally last minute on Christmas Eve. I love my bread machine! I’m sure your Cinnabon story is a great one!

  3. These look so delicious… I can almost taste them! Pinning!!

  4. They look scrumptious! Yum!

  5. These look delicious. My family loves cinnamon rolls and I’ve made them in the bread machine in the past. My question is, how do you stop the filling from leaking out? I always end up with a blob of overcooked butter/cinnamon in the bottom. Would love to try these.

    • Hi, Norma. If you don’t put the filling all the way to the edges of the dough it helps a bit, but I also just grease the pan well and we eat whatever oozes out off the bottom of the pan! Just don’t overcook it and you should be fine!
