Cast Iron Skillet Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting





Dough Ingredients:
1 cup warm milk
2 eggs, room temp
1/3 cup butter, melted
4.5 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2.5 tsp yeast

Filling Ingredients:
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2.5 tablespoons cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

Frosting Ingredients:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla


Dough Directions:
Dissolve yeast in warm milk in a large bowl. Add in sugar, butter, and eggs. Add flour and mix well. With lightly flowered hands, start kneading your dough into a large bowl. Place dough in large bowl in warm place to rise for 1 hour. (I usually preheat my oven and set the bowl on top of the oven to rise).

Filling/Assembly Directions:
Roll dough into a rectangle. Spread melted butter across your dough. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough up into a log and cut into 8-10 rolls. Place rolls in cast iron skillet. Bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes, or until rolls are golden brown on top. 

Frosting Directions:
While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, butter, sugar, and vanilla. When rolls come out of the oven, immediately frost them with 1/2 of your frosting. Wait 5 minutes and add the rest of your frosting. This will allow the frosting to get all the way down into your cinnamon rolls, yet still have frosting on top!

    1. Yes, I usually use Fleischmann's brand instant yeast which comes in the small packets or in a jar!
