Ingredients

  • DOUGH
  • 1/4 oz. package yeast
  • 1/2 C. warm water
  • 1/2 C. whole milk, warmed
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/3 C. Crisco® Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 C. all-purpose flour
  • FILLING
  • 2 Tbsps. melted butter
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1/2 C. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsps. Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • FROSTING
  • 1 (3 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 C. powdered sugar
  • 2 to 3 Tbsps. milk

Directions

  1. SPRAY a large bowl with no-stick cooking spray like Baker’s Joy®.
  2. DISSOLVE yeast in warm water. Combine 1/2 C. milk, sugar, melted shortening, salt and egg in large bowl. Add 2 C. flour; mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in just enough remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface 5 to 6 minutes. Place in prepared bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  3. PUNCH down dough when it has doubled in size. Roll into a 15 x 9-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread melted butter over dough. Combine sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in small bowl; sprinkle over buttered dough. Beginning on one long side, tightly roll up dough; pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 slices.
  4. HEAT oven to 350ºF. Spray bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with no-stick cooking spray. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in pan. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. BAKE 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
  6. BEAT cream cheese until creamy. Add powdered sugar, beating until combined. Add milk, 1 Tbsp. at a time until thick but spreadable consistency. Beat until smooth. Spread over slightly cooled rolls. Serve warm.
