How To Make The Best Cinnamon Rolls Ever:

Rolls Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm milk (no hotter than 110 degrees f)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream


  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups brown sugar

Frosting Ingredients:

  • 4 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 3 tablespoons softened butter
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Add milk, sugar, and yeast to the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix and then let stand for about 5 minutes to let it start bubbling. Add melted butter and stir. Whisk the egg in a small bowl and slowly add to the mixture in the bowl while it’s mixing. Mix until well combined. With a dough hook, slowly add flour and salt. Stir on a low speed with your dough hook for about 8 minutes. The dough should not stick to your fingers now, but if it does, add more flour to the dough a tablespoon at a time until it is pulling away from the bowl and it doesn’t stick to your fingers.

Transfer dough to an oiled bowl and cover with a tea towel. Let rise until doubled. About an hour and a half.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Roll dough on a well-floured surface into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Spread softened butter all over dough then sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the butter.

Tightly roll the dough up, starting from the 12-inch side and pinch the seam so your rolls stay rolled up. Cut into 1 inch pieces and add to a sprayed 9×13 pan.

Pour heavy whipping cream all over the top of the rolls.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and not doughy. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.

While the rolls are cooling, make the frosting. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Spread over cinnamon rolls and serve immediately.
