Made with frozen bread dough, these cinnamon rolls are super-easy to make and super-tasty without all the work.


  • 1 (1 pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ⅔ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ⅔ cup sifted confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk, or more as needed
  • 1 dash vanilla extract


Lightly grease 2 round cake pans with butter.

Roll bread dough out to an 18×6-inch rectangle and brush with melted butter. Mix brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over dough. Roll dough into a log, starting at the long edge. Moisten edge with a little water; seal the edge. Cut log into 20 slices; arrange rolls, cut sides down, in prepared cake pans. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pour heavy cream over dough.

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Stir confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth, adding more milk or sugar as needed so the mixture is easily drizzled. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls to serve.
