Cinnamon Rolls

We had SOOO much fun making these Cinnamon Rolls in our test kitchen this week. And let me tell you - they are SUPER YUMMY!!!! Be sure to get a TALL glass of milk to wash these down. This also makes a perfect breakfast when you have guests over. Wouldn't this make a great breakfast after a sleepover party? =) Enjoy!

Cinnamon Rolls

2 packages Pillsbury Recipe Creations refrigerated dough
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 Tblsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. sugar
1/8 c. brown sugar
1/2 pkg. (4 oz.) cream cheese
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small mixing bowl, mix cinnamon, sugar, and brown sugar thoroughly.

Unroll 1 package of dough. Using a basting brush, spread butter on dough. Make sure to cover all the dough. Sprinkle sugar mixture over butter. (We like to use A LOT of the sugar mixture.) When the dough is thoroughly covered with sugar mixture, roll dough into original shape. Cut into 8 slices. Repeat with second package of dough.

Place slices flat side down on a baking sheet. (For best results, use a stone baking sheet.) Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar in a separate bowl. Spread cream cheese icing on each cinnamon roll. Enjoy!
