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.
