Hip Hip Hooray, it's Friday!!!
A couple of weekends ago, I got the craving for Cinnabon Type Cinnamon rolls.
Right as rain, I had everything I needed in the house.
If you know me, you know that I refuse to bake with mixes.  That includes cinnamon rolls in a can, yuck. We can do so much better than that. However, the idea just popped into my head, so I didn't have the time to wait for yeast to rise. What to do? Hmmm....I did have some pizza dough made up. I couldn't use that? Could I?  Oh yes,I could and I did!
Guys, these were so good. Both Chad & my mom were in heaven! The whole darn dish of them were gone with in one day.

They were so quick and easy to make. I figured I'd share them with you today, because tomorrow is Saturday, wink wink!

  • 4 Tablespoons  butter, melted, plus more for greasing pan
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 pound homemade or store-bought pizza dough, at room temp
  • 2 C of Heavy Cream


  • 4 Tablespoons butter, at room temp
  • 2.5 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 Tablespoons hot water , more or less until you reach your desired consistency



Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Grease an 8x11-inch baking dish with  butter.
In a  bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon .
Lightly flour your work surface then roll out room temperature dough into a 16x10-inch rectangle. Brush the dough all over with the melted butter then sprinkle it with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Starting at the long end closest to you, tightly roll the dough into a log. Cut the log into 12 rolls, about 1 1/2-inches each. Arrange each roll in the prepared baking dish about 1 inch apart.
Pour about 2 TBS of Heavy Cream over each individual roll.
Bake the rolls for 20 to 25 minutes until the dough is fully cooked.(do NOT over bake) Remove the rolls from the oven and let them cool slightly while you make the glaze.


In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk in the hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches your desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the slightly warm cinnamon rolls and serve immediately.
Refrigerate left overs. Left overs can be reheated  in a microwave for approximately 30-40 seconds.

The perfect thing for your Saturday morning, enjoy!
Have a great weekend, Lovelies!
