Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

cinnamon rolls recipe


1 package Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet

2 tablespoons Butter, melted

1/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

1/4 cup Raisins

1/4 cup Pecans, chopped


3/4 cup Powdered Sugar

1 package Cream Cheese, softened

1 tablespoon Maple Syrup

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a small bowl, stir together sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves. Roll out the seamless dough sheet. Brush the dough with melted butter.  Sprinkle the sugar and spice mixture evenly over the dough sheet. Next sprinkle the raisins and pecans evenly over the dough. Starting at the long side, roll the dough into a log, pinching at the seams to seal.  Cut into 10-12 pieces.  Place the cinnamon rolls in a greased baking dish cut side up. Bake in the oven for 28-30 minutes, until dough is golden brown.

While the cinnamon rolls are baking, make the cream cheese frosting.  In a bowl, beat together powdered sugar, cream cheese, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.  If you would like a thinner glaze, add 1 tablespoon milk.

When cinnamon rolls have cooled slightly but still warm, add frosting to them directly in the pan. Garnish with pecan pieces.
