Christmas Cinnamon Rolls

A dear friend shared these amazing pieces of delicacies a few years ago and they became an instant Adams Favorite. We traditionally have these every Christmas morning because there’s just something magical about gooey cinnamon love on Christmas, but my kids frequently request them for birthdays and family gatherings as well. Try them, you’ll never go back to any other cinnamon roll!

Prep Time: 80 minutes in bread machine, 15-20 minutes filling and cutting per family. (plus time for rising and baking)
Rolls:
1 cup warm milk
1/3 cup melted butter
2 beaten eggs
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/4 tsp Bread Machine Yeast

Place ingredients into bread machine in the above order and turn to the dough setting.

Filling:
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 1/2 TB cinnamon
soft margarine for spreading

Combine sugar and cinnamon and mix until fine.
When dough has finished, roll out onto floured surface until roughly 1/4 inch thick. Dough should have a rectangular or oval type shape.

Spread dough with margarine and then sprinkle the Cinnamon Sugar over the top.
Begin rolling the dough by starting on the long side and rolling towards you in a jelly-roll fashion. Cut rolled dough into 1 inch slices and place in a greased 9x13inch baking dish. Allow to rise for about 30 minutes in a warm oven or place in the fridge for at least 24 hours.

Bake for 15-25 minutes at 400 degrees.

Icing:
1 stick of butter, softened
2 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
Beat ingredients together with a mixer, top the rolls when they come out, and watch them disappear! 🙂
