  • 1 batch crazy dough master recipe
  • Filling:
  • ½ cup (4oz/120g) butter, melted
  • cups ( 7 ½ oz /210g) light brown sugar
  • tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • ½ cup (4 oz/120g) Cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup (4oz/120g) powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup (1/2 stick/ 2oz) butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. After your crazy dough recipe has proofed prepare the filling:
  2. Combine the butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Once the dough has proofed transfer to a floured work surface, and roll it into a rectangle approximately 20 inches x 16 inches. It will be long so you can always do it in 2 goes.
  4. Spread the filling over the dough, leaving a narrow margin around the edges uncovered.
  5. Starting with a long edge, gently roll the dough into a log. Don't roll it too tightly. If you do, the centers of the buns will pop up as they bake.
  6. Slice the rolls 2 inches thick and set them filling side up in a deep baking pan.
  8. Cover the pan, and allow the rolls to rise until they're have grown into each other and are puffed up, about 45 minutes - 1 hour.
  9. Preheat the oven to 375oF/ 190oC. Uncover the pan and bake the buns for 40 to 45 minutes, until they're a deep golden brown.
  10. Rotate the tray during baking so they can get golden brown all over.
  11. While they are baking make your glaze: In a large bowl (or you can use a hand mixer) beat the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla together with a whisk until well combined.
  12. Remove the pan from the oven and let the rolls cool for 20 minutes. Once cooled remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack .
  13. Spread your cream cheese glaze generously over the cinnamon rolls. Enjoy immediately!
