Better than Cinnabon, Cinnamon Bun Recipe with Cream Cheese Icing

Ravioli, cinnamon buns 019 We adore cinnamon buns. What's better than sticky, gooey cinnamon buns either at breakfast or for dessert.

This recipe is all mine. I tinkered with variations over time and this one hits the mark. They are gooey and delicious and best served warm. You can pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to rewarm them. I have an uncle with a standing order whenever I make them.

Base Ingredients.

Dough from basic bread recipe found Here , prepare the dough

Cinnamon filling
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1-2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup crushed pecans

Mix the softened butter, sugar, and cinnamon together in a medium size bowl until smooth and easy to spread.

Cream cheese icing.
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups icing sugar (confectioner's sugar)

Whip butter and cream cheese together with salt using a mixer until smooth. Add 1 cup icing sugar and beat well, add vanilla and beat again. Add final cup of icing sugar and beat well for approx 3-5 minutes until well whipped. Set aside. Whip it another minute just prior to spreading over baked buns.

Prepare the dough. Remove from breadmaker and roll out on a floured surface to approx 6-8 inch by 15 inch shape as follows

Roll the dough starting along the longest edge.

Cut the dough slicing approximately 1 1/2 inches in width and place in a prepared 9 x 12 pan (parchment paper lined or very very well buttered). Leaving plenty of space between the rolls to allow for rising (as illustrated below). Sprinkle additional pecans over top if desired.
You should have enough to make an addition 9 inch round cake pan as well. This recipe really works best lining the pans with parchment paper.
