So what is the best way to start off your morning? A huge cinnamon roll with a pound of frosting. Okay not really but sometimes it is just better than eggs. Now I have always been a fan of Cinnabons but when is comes to paying almost $4 for of them and I have a family of 5 I always tell myself no but there are times that I like to spoil my family. I have tried a few copy cinnabons and this one turned out the best for forget buying them when I can just make the whole batch!
After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll dough into a 16x21-inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
