Cheater Cinnamon Buns


Did you know at most mega marts they sell loaves of frozen bread dough?  I bought one and as an experiment, turned it into cinnamon buns.

Yeah, I will be doing that again.

This recipe takes planning, but less hands on time to my original recipe.

Cheater Cinnamon Buns

1 loaf frozen bread dough

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Cream cheese icing
1 stick of butter,softened
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1 pound of powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Take the loaf of frozen dough, put it in a big bowl.  Leave it to defrost.  I would have done it in the fridge but I did not have any room so I put it in the oven.  When it is defrosted and poofy roll it out to an uneven rectangle.  I did the defrosting two night before I made them.  This was poor planning on my part.  If you decide to make them for the following day, I suggest pulling out the frozen loaf the morning before and letting it defrost during the day.

Mix the stick of butter with the sugar and cinnamon.  It should make a frosting like consistency.  Spread it on the uneven rectangle.  Roll it up into a fat log.  Cut it unto nine pieces.  Put the nine pieces in a square 8 x 8  buttered dish.  Let it rise overnight.  I did this again in the cold oven, because still no room in the fridge.

The following morning, I turned the oven to 350.  YOUR HOUSE WILL SMELL AMAZING.

While this is baking, I made the frosting.  This is a dump and stir.  And this makes more frosting that you will need and I froze it into little 4 ounce blocks that I can defrost when it is time to make this again.

About 30 -40 minutes later you will have these buns.  Then you have to let them cool.  About 15 minutes later frost your buns.  Eat with hot coffee or cold milk.

Makes nine buns.
