Clone of a Cinnabon

This was my first experience with yeast. (You can read about the adventure on my Sugar Tails blog.) I got the recipe from The rolls are delicious, and if you don't have a bread machine, you can visit their site and find out how to do it without one.

1 c warm milk (110 degrees F)
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 c margarine, melted
4 1/2 c bread flour
1 t salt
1/2 c white sugar
2 1/2 t bread machine yeast

Place ingredients in the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle and press start.

After the dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine:

1 c brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 T ground cinnamon

Roll dough into a 16x21" rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 c very soft butter and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place in a lightly greased 9x13" baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly double (about 30 minutes).
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. After placing the rolls in a pan, I covered them and refrigerated them overnight. Then I pulled them out about 30 minutes before baking in a 375 degree oven for 20 - 30 minutes.

While rolls are baking, beat together:
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c powdered sugar
1/2 t vanilla
1/8 t salt
Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
