Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Posted in : BREAKFAST on by : Admin

Fluffy mini bite-sized cinnamon rolls with a 5-ingredient dough made from scratch in just 30 minutes, all topped with the best cream cheese frosting.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Filling

  • 4 tablespoons butter, completely softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Frosting

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • milk
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 and lightly grease a muffin pan. Add water, yeast, and honey to the bowl of a stand mixer fitting with a dough hook and stir to combine. Allow to rest for 5 minutes (mixture will rise and foam).
  • Add flour and salt to bowl. Turn the mixer on low and allow to mix until ingredients come together, then increase mixing speed to medium-low for 5 minutes. Remove dough from bowl and allow to rise for 10 minutes on a lightly floured surface.
  • While dough is rising, prepare the filling by whisking together sugars in a bowl.
  • Use a floured rolling pin to roll dough into a 9×15 inch rectangle. Use a pizza cutter to trim off the sides if it isn’t perfectly rectangular. Spread softened butter over the surface of the dough. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture over the butter.
  • Tightly roll one 15-inch side (the long side) of the dough toward the other 15-inch side to create a long log. Pinch the seam so it closes off the log. Use a very sharp knife or a pizza cutter to cut the ends off and then to cut the log into 24 equal parts. Place each cinnamon roll in the greased muffin tins. Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • While cinnamon rolls are baking, prepare the frosting. Cream together butter and cream cheese. Mix in the vanilla. Gradually add powdered sugar and mix until combined. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency. When cinnamon rolls are finished baking, drizzle or spread frosting over rolls and serve.
