Quick Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Oh, cinnamon rolls. You get me every time. It’s hard for me to walk past a Cinnabon somewhere and cave in to the gooey sweetness of a cinnamon roll!

Cinnamon rolls are seriously one of my favorite things in the world, especially when they come with cream cheese frosting. Oh. Yeah. AAAAND today is my birthday! So I thought it was only appropriate to share with you one of my favorite things! Mr. Herb and I made these this past Saturday – a pre-birthday brunch of sorts.

Unfortunately, most cinnamon roll recipes take a few hours – you have to let the dough rise and such. But who wants to wait 3 hours for their cinnamon rolls to be eaten on a Saturday morning?! Especially when it’s in celebration of your birthday?! Not me.

Thankfully for us, there are some smart people out there that have invented much quicker methods of baking these delights.

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted

Ingredients for Quick Cinnamon Rolls RecipeRecipe Directions

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add 3 tablespoons of melted butter and milk and beat with a mixer for about 2 minutes. Move dough to a lightly floured surface and knead a couple of times, adding more flour if the dough is too sticky. Roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness, attempting to make a rectangular shape with the dough.

Melt the 2 tablespoons butter and stir in the sugar and cream cheese. Spread this mixture as evenly as possible over top of the dough.

Roll the dough up and then cut cinnamon rolls – HINT: dental floss works excellently! Put the piece of dental floss below the roll, then tie at the top and pull through. Cuts perfectly through the dough! SO much easier than a knife. Trust me!

Sprinkle some additional cinnamon and sugar as desired over the cinnamon rolls. Bake for 10-15 minutes until rolls start to brown.

While cinnamon rolls are baking, make the cream cheese frosting. Soften the cream cheese and 1 Tablespoon of butter and mix together. Then add vanilla. Gradually add powdered sugar. If consistency of icing is too thick for your liking, you can add a Tablespoon or two of milk.

Once your cinnamon rolls are done, ice them generously with the cream cheese frosting and enjoy with a large cup of coffee or glass of milk – or both!!!
