Number of serving: 4
1 cup lukewarm milk

2 large eggs

1/3 cup butter

4 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 ¾ teaspoon salt

½ cup sugar

1 pkg rapid rise yeast

1/3 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

3 ounces cream cheese

¼ cup butter

1 ½ cups confectioner's sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine all the ingredients for the dough in a large mixing bowl. Stir until the mixture begins to come together.
  • To knead by hand, transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface and knead for 5-8 minutes or until smooth. To knead in a stand mixer, attach the dough hook and knead for 4-7 minutes at medium speed.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turning it to grease all sides. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Punch down the dough. Transfer to a lightly greased surface and roll into a 16×21 inch rectangle. Leaving a 1-inch border at one of the short ends, spread the dough evenly with the 1/3 cup softened butter.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the buttered area of the dough. Be sure to carry the filling all the way out to the edges except on the one-inch border.
  • Starting at the opposite end from the clean one-inch border, roll the dough into a log. Pinch the end all the way across the log to seal the dough.
  • Cut the dough into 12 equal slices and place the buns in a lightly greased 9×13 pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and let the buns rise for about 30 minutes or until nearly doubled.
  • While the buns are rising, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • While the buns are baking, make the icing. In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, butter, sugar, and vanilla.
  • When the buns are golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Spread with the icing.
