Gingerbread Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting


  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 20 minutes

15 rolls



For dough:  Combine yeast and sugar with warm milk in a large bowl.  Set aside for 5 minutes. 

Mix butter molasses, egg and vanilla in a small bowl until well blended.  Add to yeast mixture.  Add 2 cups flour, spices and salt.  Beat for 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.  Add enough additional flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to make a soft dough.
Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Place in a greased bowl, turning to coat.  Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Roll dough into a 14 x 9-inch rectangle.  Mix sugars for the filling.  Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar mixture.  Roll up from long side as for jelly roll; seal seam.  Cut roll into 15 slices.  Place cut side up in greased 13 x 9-inch pan.

Cover, let rise 30 minutes.  Bake in preheated 350°F oven, for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool for at least 20 minutes.

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in a large bowl.  Slowly add 1 cup of sifted powdered sugar at a time, beating well after each addition.  Frost rolls.

Refrigerate any leftover rolls.
