Ingredients
For the cinnamon rolls:
  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough
  • 4 T. butter, melted
  • ½ c. brown sugar
  • 2 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. sea salt
For the frosting:
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 1½ c. powdered sugar
  • 1 t. vanilla
Instructions
  1. Thaw the bread dough in a loaf pan and allow it to rise.
  2. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a rectangle.
  3. In a small bowl combine the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Spread the brown sugar mixture onto the dough leaving a half inch edge on all sides.
  5. Roll the dough starting at one of the long ends. When you get to the end pinch the seams closed.
  6. Cut a half inch off each side of the dough then cut the dough with a serrated knife into 8 pieces. Each piece should be about 2 inches thick.

  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  9. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are brown. Remove from oven.
  10. To make the frosting beat the cream cheese and butter in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed. Add in the powdered sugar a half cup at a time and mix until smooth. Stir in the vanilla.
  11. Frost the still warm cinnamon rolls and enjoy.
