Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

This is the best cinnamon roll recipe I have ever tried.  I only thought that I would be able to make the biscuit type rolls, never the yeast rolls until a friend posted a picture of these on facebook.  When I asked her for the recipe, she directed me to Money Saving Mom and the bread machine cinnamon rolls.  I've made them with the glaze recipe provided and also with cream cheese icing.  They are amazing either way.

Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls


1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm milk
3 tablespoons oil
1 egg, lightly beaten plus 2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour (Add a bit more if dough seems too wet after first few minutes of kneading in the bread machine.)
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast


2 tablespoons butter
 1/3 cup brown sugar  and 1/3 cup white sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon cinnamon

I doubled the filling recipe, but didn't use quite the whole mix, so I just stuck in the cabinet for the next time I made these.


1 teaspoon milk
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
4 tablespoons (or less) butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla

Put the dough ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed and run on the dough cycle. After the dough cycle is finished, roll the dough into a large rectangle and spread it with 2 Tablespoons melted butter and 2/3 cup brown sugar mixed with 1 Tablespoon cinnamon.
Roll up and cut into 10-15 rolls and place in two greased round cake pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until browned. Spread the icing on as soon as they come out of the oven.
You can also cover the unbaked rolls with plastic wrap, stick them in the refrigerator overnight, and then bake in the morning.
