    2 hrs 10 mins


  1. Lightly grease 2 round cake pans with butter.
  2. Roll bread dough out to an 18x6-inch rectangle and brush with melted butter. Mix brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over dough. Roll dough into a log, starting at the long edge. Moisten edge with a little water; seal the edge. Cut log into 20 slices; arrange rolls, cut sides down, in prepared cake pans. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour heavy cream over dough.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  5. Stir confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth, adding more milk or sugar as needed so the mixture is easily drizzled. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls to serve.

I was amazed at how easy they were to make but also how really yummy they were too! This recipe is great anytime but especially when you don't have the time to make dough from scratch!

At this moment the rolls, such as they are, are rising. I thawed the dough in a baggie overnight in the refrigerator. When I tried to roll it out to the dimensions in the instructions, it kept springing back. I was never able to get it flat enough to roll up very well. Any ideas?

i have made these for years. they stay soft for days, if they last that long. you can use cream cheese and jam instead of butter and cinnamon in the middle for a different taste. the whipping creme is the key to these rolls. you will love them.

These were easy and delicious! Much cheaper than the store bought version as well. Cinnamon rolls are a Christmas tradition at our house and these will replace the store bought version from now on!

I tried this using the overnight method suggested on another site. The taste was yummy, but the dough was very tough. I don't know where I went wrong because they were minimumly handled. Not to be outdone, I tried this version and they were perfect...soft, fluffy, delicious. Success feels even better after a failure!

Dear CLOUDY 14, the Heavy Cream is poured over the dough in STEP 3. (it is written out after the oven temp setting.) Hope that answers your question.

Absolutely amazing! I made this recipe for my mom for mother's day, she was delighted when she woke up and found out what I was up to, but also a bit sad because she was on a diet (unknown to me at the time). She said she would have one, but she ended up having two, and one more the next day! These cinnamon rolls could not have been more delicious. Using frozen bread dough is so much easier and just as good as making homemade dough. I exchanged pecans for walnuts which turned out great! Definitely worth a try.

They just came out of the oven and they are so tender!! The heavy cream really added to the tenderness. This is my go to recipe from now on. Using frozen dough was perfect and saved time. It's hard to improve on this recipe; I just used pecans instead and made a mistake and added the heavy cream to the icing but I wouldn't change what I added to the flavor of the icing. I just added more sugar to get to the consistency I wanted. My photo was too large to upload... :-( Thanks so much...
