Cinnamon Roll Recipe

These are DECADENT. Legit cue a rainy Saturday where you wear your pajamas all day. They smell fantastic and seem way more daunting than they actually are.



1 yeast packet

1/2 cup warm water

1/2 tsp white sugar

1/2 cup warm milk

1/3 cup white sugar

5 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

3 1/2 cups flour


1/2 cup softened butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 cup melted butter


4 oz cream cheese ( i use whipped because its easier)

4 tablespooon softened butter

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • Bloom yeast with warm water & sugar. Put in a cup/bowl & set aside.

  • In the your standing mixer with the paddle attachment, add milk, sugar, room temp butter, salt, & egg, mix.

  • After combined, mix in yeast mixture slowly.

  • Add in flour and mix mix mix until a dough forms. Take from the bowl, put on a floured surface and knead until it looks plump. You can poke it and it should bounce back.

  • Put in a oiled bowl & cover with a clean towel. Let sit for a few hours until it doubles in size.

  • With 20 min left to rise, mix your filling & prep your pan -- combine soft!!! butter, cinnamon, brown sugar in a bowl & set aside. Next, melt 1/2 cup butter and put inside pan you want to bake in.

  • Once the dough has risen, punch down and put onto floured surface. Roll into a large rectangle.

  • Spread filling onto dough. (you may need to use your hands, go for it gal!)

  • Now, roll (tightly!) into a long cylinder. Tuck the seam side down so the roll sits pretty. Cut into 1 1/2 - 2" (ish) sections, and place onto pan with melted butter. You can tuck them fairly close, but remember they will rise again.

  • Foil up and put in the fridge overnight.

  • In the morning, preheat the oven to 350. Ensure the dough is room temp before putting into the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden.

  • While the buns are baking, make the icing. Whip cream cheese, softened butter, powdered sugar, cinnamon, & vanilla.

  • After buns are baked, spread that ish ALL OVER.

You did it. Amazing. Try not to eat them all. No promises tho
