Almost Homemade Cinnamon Rolls


Cinnamon Roll Ingredients

  • 1 Loaf Frozen Bread Dough Thawed over night in loaf pan, not risen
  • 5 Tbsp Margarine or Butter
  • 5 Tbsp Sugar
  • 3 tsp Cinnamon

Frosting Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla


  • Roll out dough to about 12 x 14 inches. Spread butter evenly on top of dough
  • Sprinkle with sugar and then with cinnamon
  • Roll up jelly-roll style, tightly pinching ends so sugar / cinnamon doesn't fall out
  • With a sharp knife cut into 1-inch sections and lay in prepared pan
  • Allow dough to rise until almost double in size (around 1 - 2 hours), they will also rise quite a bit while baking. Meanwhile, prepare frosting (see recipe below). To help them rise a little more quickly, I put them in the oven with the light on, and place a bowl of water on the rack beneath them to help moisture stay in the oven.
  • Bake in a greased round or square pan at 350 Degrees for 15 - 20 minutes. Tops will be golden brown when done. Allow rolls to cool slightly while preparing topping. (If you're like me, you may want to spread a little butter or margarine on top to make them nice and glossy!)

Frosting Instructions

  • Mix powdered sugar and milk to make a thick paste
  • Add more milk or powdered sugar as needed
  • Spread on still-warm rolls, allowing the frosting to melt slightly. Serve warm.
