How to Make Decadent Cinnamon Rolls

This decadent cinnamon rolls recipe is ooey-gooey and loaded with cinnamon. The brown sugar-cinnamon-butter paste becomes slightly caramelized, creating those chewy bits that everyone loves!

Ingredients Needed

– whole milk  – instant dry yeast  – eggs – unsalted butter – granulated sugar – all-purpose flour – salt – brown sugar – cinnamon – heavy cream – cream cheese – confectioner's sugar – vanilla extract

Recipe Instructions

Make the Dough: Into the bowl of a stand mixer, pour the warm milk, yeast, eggs, soft butter, and sugar. Use a rubber spatula to combine.  Fit the mixer with the beater blade, and add 4 cups of flour and salt. Mix at low-to-medium speed, just until ingredients are combined.

Recipe Instructions

Remove beater blade and fit the dough hook. Knead at medium speed until the dough is very smooth and pliable. If dough is too wet, add 1 tbsp. of flour at a time. The dough will still stick to the sides of the bowl, so only add additional flour if necessary.

Recipe Instructions

Grease a large bowl with butter or cooking spray. Shape the dough into a ball and place in the greased bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, 1 ½ to 2 hours.

Recipe Instructions

Make the Filling: While your dough rises, make the filling. In a medium bowl, add softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix until well combined. Set aside.

Recipe Instructions

Shape the Dough: Punch  down the risen dough and turn out onto a lightly floured work surface. Flour a rolling pin and use to shape the dough into a 24x15-inch  rectangle.
