Easy Cinnamon Rolls

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Easy Cinnamon Rolls
These cinnamon rolls are relatively easy, made with frozen bread dough and a delicious cinnamon filling.

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • dash vanilla


Roll dough to a rectangle, about 18x6 inches. Brush with the melted butter. Combine brown sugar, chopped nuts, and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough. Starting at long edge, roll dough up, jelly roll fashion; moisten edges and seal. Cut roll into 20 slices. Place rolls, cut side down, into two lightly buttered round cake pans. Let rise for about 1 1/2 hours, until doubled. Pour the cream over the rolls then bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla, adding more sugar or milk if necessary. Drizzle over rolls while still warm.
Makes 20 cinnamon rolls.

Fantastic Cinnamon Rolls, Member JeanneCoates

I used this recipe in a pinch when I realized on a Friday night that I had nothing to serve for breakfast to the 6 girls at a sleepover. I had frozen bread dough in the freezer, thawed it in the fridge overnight and whipped these up in the morning. They were the best rolls I have ever made - my family has raved about them, and a double batch disappeared very quickly. They are now a holiday breakfast staple in our house! Make sure you use the cream - it makes the rolls incredibly moist and delicious.
