The BEST Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Does anyone else instantly crave baked goods as soon as the weather cools down? I am all about pumpkin recipes this time of year, but cinnamon rolls are one of my very favorites.

The problem? I am an incredibly picky cinnamon roll eater.

They have to be just right. I don’t work out to eat dry, stale calories no matter how sweet they are.

I am a sucker for Cinnabons and have a hard time walking past that heavenly smell at the mall without grabbing a bite. Another justification for my Amazon obsession.

This cinnamon roll recipe, after much trial and error, is as close to a Cinnabon as I have ever tasted and will not disappoint. Dare I say, they are even better.

They have become a Christmas morning tradition and a go-to for that cool-weather sweet treat.

Bon appetit!

    I love my Oster Bread machine.

    It was the highest-rated machine on Amazon, and I got it as a Christmas gift several years ago. It allows for homemade dough and bread to be a much less overwhelming task. Check out my review here.

    This machine requires your wet ingredients to be put in first and dry ingredients last. Make sure you know the recommended order of your machine. It makes a difference!

    Find your machine’s dough cycle (on the Oster it is number 9). Ah, I just love this machine. Even my grandmother, the queen of all things homemade, uses this bread machine!!

    LOVE IT.

    Spread LOTS of flour before rolling out this dough.

    It is crescent dough which is in part the secret to the heavenly taste of these rolls, but the dough is very moist.

    LOTS of flour.

    I must have been distracted when making this recipe, because typically what I recommend is melting the butter, then spreading it onto your dough first, then sprinkling the cinnamon sugar mixture over that.

    NOT pre-mixing it and trying to spread it onto the dough as I did here. Whoops.

    This is a slightly larger pan than a 9×13. If you want to make smaller rolls simply cut your strips in half.

      1. I’m new to baking. You say to spread filling after it’s doubled. I guess that’s another step before rolling. Also do you let buns reuse again before baking???

        1. Great questions! Yes, the filling is spread on after the dough has doubled and has been rolled out on your counter top. You do not need to let the buns rise again. Hope that helps!
