  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • For the filling:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • For the cream cheese icing:
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl, combine warm milk and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Sprinkle yeast over the mixture and let it sit for about 5 minutes, until it becomes foamy.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the softened butter, remaining sugar, salt, and egg. Add the yeast mixture and flour gradually, stirring until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes, until smooth. Place it in a greased bowl, cover with a cloth, and let it rise for 1 hour.
  4. Roll out the dough into a 16×10-inch rectangle. Spread the melted butter over the dough, then sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly.
  5. Roll up the dough tightly from the long side and cut into 12 even slices. Place them in a greased baking dish and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
  7. While the rolls are cooling slightly, prepare the cream cheese icing by mixing cream cheese, softened butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth. Drizzle it over the warm cinnamon rolls.
