Frosted Cinnamon Rolls


  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours 38 minutes

12 rolls



1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast

1 cup water (120º to 130ºF)


3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon


1-1/4 cups powdered sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons light cream

1/4 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract


To make dough:
Cream butter, sugar and salt together using an electric mixer. Stir in egg. Add 2 cups flour and yeast. Pour water in all at once and mix.
Gradually add 1-3/4 cups flour to make a soft dough. Knead 5 minutes on lightly floured surface. Place dough in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until double, about 45 to 60 minutes.

Punch down and roll out dough to a 18 x 10-inch rectangle. Brush dough with 3 tablespoons melted butter. Mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle entire amount evenly over dough.

Roll up from long side; seal edges. Cut roll into 12 slices. Using three greased 8-inch square pans, place 4 rolls per pan, cut side up. Cover and let rise until double, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350ºF for 16 to 18 minutes. Cool.

For Frosting:
Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and enough cream to make icing of pouring consistency. Drizzle frosting evenly on all rolls.
