"These are gobbled up as soon as family sees them. I'll never try another cinnamon roll recipe, because I think these are the best. Note: These are wonderful fresh, but they don't freeze well."

  1. In saucepan, heat 1/2 cup milk, water, and 2 tablespoons butter until very warm. Place milk mixture, salt, flour, yeast, sugar, and eggs in the pan of the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Select the Dough cycle. Press Start.
  2. Once Dough cycle is complete, remove the dough from the bread machine and punch down. On a floured surface, roll into a large rectangle. Smear with the softened butter. Combine the cinnamon and 1/3 cup sugar. Sprinkle over the rectangle. Generously sprinkle the raisins and/or chopped nuts over the top.
  3. Roll the dough up into a log starting at the long side. Cut into 12 slices. Place the rolls cut side down into a 9x13-inch greased baking pan. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Combine the confectioners' sugar, 1.5 tablespoons melted butter, vanilla extract, and 1.5 tablespoons milk into a thick frosting; set aside.
  5. Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove and allow to cool 10 minutes. Spread frosting over baked rolls and enjoy.

I have had great luck freezing before raising or baking. Then, when I am ready to eat them, I put them in the oven on warm to thaw and rise. When they have risen enough I bake as usual. They'...

I did 1/2 of the recipe. It fit in my bread machine perfectly and made one dozen, large and yummy rolls. Using the bread machine makes this recipe so easy. I refrigerated the rolls overnight ...

These cinnamon rolls were wonderful! I don’t always have the best luck with yeast so this is the trick I’ve learned…in a measuring cup I heated ½ cup of the water and stirred in 2 Tbs. yeast and...

These rolls are great. They are light and fluffy. I liked them better than "Clone of Cinnabon" because they are not as gooey and the dough is easier to work and form. Next time I'm going to a...

Tried this recipe, might not have used the right size bread machine. Used 2lbs. bread pan in machine and the recipe did not work, way too much dough for the machine to handle, cut it in half fo...

This is the first time I have ever made cinnamon rolls from scratch, and now my husband will never let me buy the ready to bake rolls again. I had to add a little more flour also. Great recipe!

I have to say, these are the BEST cinnamon rolls! My entire family agrees. THANKS, Stephanie!
