Cinnamon Rolls

We made these the night before conference, popped them in the fridge, and then let them sit out for about 30 minutes before baking them for conference morning. YUMMY!


1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F)
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 cups bread flour

1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

Turn on oven to 200 degrees.
In a KitchenAid bowl, dissolve the sugar in the warm milk and add the yeast. Let proof for 8-10 minutes until foamy.
Mix the eggs, butter and salt together and add to the yeast mixture. Mix.
Using a dough hook, mix the flour in.
Turn the oven off.
Place a damp kitchen towel over the bowl and set in oven for one hour.

In a small bowl, combine softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Sprinkle dough evenly with butter/sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough (on the long side) and cut into 12 rolls using dental floss about 1.5 inches apart.

Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 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.
