I have used the same recipe for cinnamon rolls for a long time because they were fine and I was comfortable with the recipe. I was hesitant to try a new bread recipe because it's so disappointing when it doesn't turn out because it was a lot of time, effort and anticipation---especially when it's a bread recipe. But a few weeks ago I bought the Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls at Costco and everyone loved them and I knew that my recipe wasn't cutting the mustard! So I ventured out and came upon this recipe and it was really good! It's a cinnamon roll recipe, not a roll recipe turned into cinnamon rolls. I didn't let them sit overnight, just out for a couple hours on the counter and they were great after dinner! (The photo is not with the frosting recipe I included. The frosting I included makes them look way more irresistible!)
generously cover dough with cinnamon, brown sugar, white sugar and raisins. (Don't skimp on the cinnamon, especially!)
Ms. Humble's Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting16oz cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup heavy cream, cold. Higher the fat content, the better (I'm using 40% Ultra)
Beat the cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream to nearly stiff peaks, then add the whipped cream into the cheese mixture and quickly and briefly beat to combine. Do not over beat.
