  • they are so worth the work. I just made them today and my family could not stop eating them. I believe that they are better than cinnabon.
    These take a while to make but are well worth the time. AWSOME!!!

  • I just wanted you to know that these rolls are the BOMB! I've tried other recipes that claim they taste like Cinnabons and they don't even compare to this recipe. I'm so glad I found your site. Thanks for the wonderful Cinnamon Roll Recipe.

  • Our family gets together every Wednesday with our best friend family. I made these for dessert and they were rated better than cinnabons!! Now, in addition to my famous apple dumplings, I can add these!!

  • I've wanted to try these for awhile and finally made them New Year's Day. They are time consuming but are well worth the effort. They are very delicious. I was a little frustrated trying to get the right consistency of the dough but finally managed. Because of the quantity I shared them with my two daughters and their families and received great reviews. I love your website. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes.

  • It was a lot of work, but was it worth it!!!! My whole family loved them! We heated them up in the microwave for 45 seconds and were still yummy!

  • I think these would be good, but watch the baking time ... I'm an experienced baker, and after I baked mine a little over 30 minutes, thought they were done. But after they sat a bit they sank and it turned out they were still all gooey in the middle. Made for a disappointing Christmas brunch.

  • Your recipe can be GREATLY improved by: 1. Add mashed potatoes to the dough--makes them very soft like potato bread 2. Use bread flour instead of all-purpose flour 3. Add cream cheese to your topping. 4. Spread apple sauce along with butter on rolled out dough. These additions will make your rolls better than sex.

  • Absolutely outstanding!! Delicious and well worth the time. I WILL make again and share this wonderful recipe.

  • These can be a make-ahead. Immediately after placing them in the prepared pans, cover with greased foil and freeze. The night before you want to serve them, put them out on the kitchen counter before going to bed. The final rising will take place overnight and they will be ready to bake in the am. As good as fresh. Great for Christmas morning.

  • AWESOME!!!  Tastes even better than Cinnabon!

  • It makes absolutely no sense at all!! These were the most scrumptious cinnamon rolls around. The recipe made so many, that I just had to take the rest to work the next day! I was the bell of the ball with these. (One guy even asked for my hand in marriage over these rolls!!) I have 3 people already asking me to make some for their parties. It's definitely worth it to donate to this website when I get the profits for making these rolls. Thanks once again Robbie!! I don't know what I'd do without you!!!

  • good but hard to make

  • INCREDIBLE - WORTH ALL THE TIME AND MESS!!!

  • Just wanted to let you know that "these are screamin' " according to my neighbor's son. Everyone loved them!!! Guess what the neighbors are getting for Christmas?!

  • WONDERFUL Cinnamon roll recipe. This is the first time I've ever made any type of bread and it turned out great! The recipe was easy to follow and very explanatory. To cut back a little of the fat in the recipe I used a non-stick baking spray instead of butter in the baking sheet and also used a milk, powdered sugar, cinnamon and vanilla frosting rather than the butter cream frosting suggested in your recipe. It is delicious!

  • better than the real thing. orgasmic well worth the rising and preparation time. while your at it make 2 batches as they will go lightening quick!

  • This is the best recipe I have ever tried.  Time consuming but well worth the wait.

  • My husband made these, they were great. He is not really very "baking friendly" person but his results were fantastic. His mother-in-law even want his recipe! It's a must try recipe.

  • This recipe is the BEST! It is a hit with everyone. Thanks to this recipe everyone thinks that I am an awesome baker and they all ask me to make it again for them

  • Hey Robbie, not only is this recipe outrageous and delicious but checking out your "If this recipe interests you, check out..." was very clever advertising! Just wanted to thank you for not only exciting the family's taste buds with the recipe but for working my peripheral vision while visiting your site!

  • Great ! Can't make enough. The neighbors have standing orders every time I make them.

  • I made the Cinnabons Cinnamon Buns this morning and they're fantastic. I halved the recipe, and made the dough in our bread machine to simplify the process. I also used butter instead of margarine, and brushed the tops of the formed rolls with melted butter prior to baking. I'll most definitely make these again!

  • Fabulous cinnamon buns! They were so easy to make. Worth the time invested. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.

  • I wanted to let you know that I tried freezing the dough and it did great! I fixed it thru the jelly roll stage and then froze it in 3 smaller rolls. I let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then took up the recipe with the final rise the next morning. It got rave reviews! Thanks for a great recipe.

  • I loved this recipe! Better than Cinnabon's and SOOO EASY! Prep time was really only 2 1/2 hours for me, and the dough is beautifully easy to work with! Thanks for sharing!

  • About 8:00pm last night, I got a craving for a Cinnabon. I'm fairly comfortable in the kitchen and have no fear of experimenting... so I decided to look online for a knock-off recipe of those scrumptious Cinnabons. The recipe on your Web site is one of the few that doesn't require a bread machine. I had so much fun making these! It's the first bread-like recipe I've ever tried. Kneading, punching it down...etc...was great fun for me. The cinnamon rolls turned out to be sooo much better than Cinnabon's, though the recipe could feed a small army. :) My boyfriend was really in heaven with 'em as well.

  • I made these cinnamon buns for Easter and everyone raved about how yummy they were, I for sure will keep this recipe and have already given the recipe to friends!

  • Thanks for the recipe. I had to find something quick because my mother in law didn't think I could make cinnamon rolls. My husband thinks I'm the cinnamon roll queen now. I make them in my bread maker and I like to substitute part brown sugar in every step except the dough itself to add a caramely taste. YUM.

  • A real 'TA DA' recipe. The ironic thing was that I made these because I always feel slightly sick after eating a whole Cinnabon, and I figured it was probably some chemical they used. But after eating a whole one of these, I felt exactly the same! I added some cream cheese to the frosting because it was just a little too 'powdered sugar' tasting for me. Will make these again, and only eat them 1/2 at a time!

  • Excellent recipe. Thank you.

  • I couldn't wait to cook these for my husband, but was VERY disappointed, the bread was very doughy and very hard. Followed the recipe very carefully.

  • These were incredible!!! They are sooo good, my family wont stop asking for them! I first made them in my foods and nutrition class and our teacher gave all of us your website. They are amazing, you have to make a couple batches if you want any for yourself!! Thanks so much!

  • Oh my!! I had so much fun making these. Being the inexperienced baker that I am I was afraid that these were going to be a total flop. I remembered to add the eggs and salt after I kneaded the bread for eight minutes. Even though I added them later these rolls turned out great! I was a total mess, covered in flour from head to waist. I can't wait to make these again! What a fantastic recipe.

  • I absolutely loved them. The recipe is right on and I am not a bread maker. I even forget to put my yeast mixture in until half way thru adding the flour and they still turned out wonderful. I used brown sugar instead white and they were delicious. I can't wait to bake these for my entire family.

  • Robbie, I have made these cinnamon rolls a few times now, and each time I make them I think I ought to write and thank you. So...thank you! It is a great recipe, and although it may look difficult, it is easy. Since for some people a whole one is too much, I usually make full size rolls with half the recipe and smaller rolls with the other half. (Of course, then everyone eats two of the small rolls!) Maria (from Uruguay)

  • My search for the worlds best cinnamon roll recipe is over! These were great!

  • Thanks so much for this recipe. I have made them several times and they are a hit each time. If only I could quit eating them once I have made them. They are very delicious.

  • These cinnamon buns are a winner! I have not been too impressed with any of the recipes I have tried from the Internet. - But these cinnamon buns are an exception. Not only do they taste great but they look as if they are difficult to make and are really quite easy. Thank you. This recipe will go into my recipe file and used over and over again.

  • My mom has type 2 diabetes and was struggling with her sweet tooth, I made these DELICIOUS rolls using Splenda, and made the icing on the side for dipping, she was so thrilled!! They turned out just as good as the original... THANKS SO MUCH!!!

  • Most fabulous! I shared some with co-workers and the were in hog heaven.

  • You are my IDOL!!!! I made these last night for my husband and I'm beside myself how they taste just like Cinnabon. No more 45 minute trips to the mall.

  • This was my first time baking bread like dough. But it came out so good and also It's easy to make. I live in Thailand and there's no cinnbon shop here so now I can make my own cinnaabon and eat them whenever i want! Thanks so much Robbie :)

  • You are my IDOL!!!! I made these last night for my husband and I'm beside myself how they taste just like Cinnabon. No more 45 minute trips to the mall.

  • Hiya again. I've made these over 12 times and last night at the suggestion of a visitor on the website I sprayed the bottom of the pan with butter spray instead of using the 2/3 margarine as you are supposed to. (It was late but I wanted them) NO GOOD! The bottom of these buns formed a candy like crunch to them. They were still good but I wouldn't recommend altering the recipe in a way that will change the texture. Love you by the way...I've made almost everything with complete success!!!

  • Oh my goodness!!!! These are the best cinnamon buns I have ever made. I've been baking for some time, and these are the most delicious (and easiest) I have ever made or tasted!!!! Thanks Robbie for yet another great recipe!!!

  • Just want to let you know..I made the cinnabon's for a Mother's Day brunch and everyone went "nuts" over them. They are excellent and I will make them again, for sur.

  • i did everything right and they never cooked...they were hard as a rock but still had the dough texture and taste

  • These are so amazing! My husband laughed at me for going on and on about them until he tasted one and declared he was going to eat another. They're well worth the wait! I'll be making these again for sure.

  • Don't be afraid to use enough flour as needed.Hard to get consistency of dough.But all worth it in the end

  • I made these today and they are awesome. I tried a different recipe a week ago and it was horrible. My family wont stop eating the ones I made today and there was 30 of them!!!! They do take a while but well worth it!!!! I will definitely make these again!!!

  • I made a batch and took them to church to share. Other girls want this recipe. Should I share it with them? I just gave them your website so they can discover more of your delicious recipes on their own. These are the BEST cinnamon buns I have ever made, after baking for almost 50 years! Thank you, Robbie.

  • 100% the Best period

  • This what i was looking for all my life, i everytime go to cinnabon to have a roll sometimes i feeling have one at night but now i can make them at home

  • Thank you for this great recipe! Never made cinnamon buns before. They were better than any i've eaten at fairs and I thought those were wonderful. I will use this recipe forever. So happy I found your site.

  • This was the BEST! most AMAZING cinnamon buns we've ever tasted. Forget about Cinnabon. One thing that is dangerous about these Cinnamon buns is that you can't stop eating them. I'm sending this recipe to everybody I know. Thanks.

  • AWESOME! You rule Robbie Keep up the great work

  • These rolls are the bomb. My husband fell in love with me all over again after tasting them. I used a cream cheese icing instead. Thank you sooo much

  • i am baking the rolls right now...and they smelll deeeelicious and i cant wait to have them im my tummy :D im gonna message again once they are done and tell you how good they are:D:D

  • OMG!! These are the best!! I made them last night ... only 2 1/2 hours from start to finished. They smelled so good and I was so proud of how they looked I took them piping hot out of the oven to my mom and sister's homes. EVERYONE LOVED THEM! I'm not a baker ... don't think you can mess these up! SUPER EASY AND DELICIOUS

  • Very tasty (especially the dough itself!), and I made only few alterations (kept the dough in the fridge for a few hours because I had to leave the house, and I used Bourbon Vanilla instead of extract). Only one difficulty: when I cut the roll into slices (no matter whether using a knife or thread) a lot of the tasty filling fell out.

  • These truly are like everyone said, Awesome! Did you know you can buy cinnamon at the Cinnabon Shop for about $6...if you want the exact cinnamon taste.

  • WOW! These are amazing. I am a High School student, and an amateur baker at best. The recipe was well worded and easy to follow, and did I mention how great these taste? As good as any cinnamon roll I have ever had. Thank you for this great recipe, and Id recommend it all.

  • I've only made homemade cinnamon rolls a few times as they were a great deal of work and not that great. But these...were out of this world! My family continues to rave.Thanks for a greattttt recipe!

  • Made a test batch yesterday...they were instantly gone. I'm busy now making LOTS of them to give all my neighbors to enjoy Christmas morning. Our old family traditional breakfast that has lasted for 65+ years will be changed this year!

  • These Cinnabon's rocked my socks!!!

  • I made the recipe, it taste great and my family loved it but the only negative thing about it according to my family is that i'ts too sweet... Generally it delicious...

  • These rolls ar great. I made them to the slice stage, then I froze them. I took them out the night before I needed them, placed them on the butter and sugar, covered them with plastic wrap left them on the counter over night and baked them the next morning. Awesome. I didn't think they were any harder to make than any other scratch recipe.

  • hello there!What a great recipe for a cinnamon rolls I been learning to bake just ecently and this recipe makes me feel iam a chef. thank you for this wonderful recipes . It was a sucess ..More power and God bless you.

  • Sending a gentle hello to all from The Bahamas. I love this recipe so much...it just "takes my breath away." ...I mean just "to die for"

  • Very good! Best cinnamon bun recipe I have ever tried! I did add brown sugar in with the cinnamon/sugar for the filling prior to rolling them up. Would maybe try a different icing but other then that these are excellant! Definitely a keeper!

  • It was a really good recipe! I did cut the recipe by 3 because otherwise we would have them coming out our ears! Plus I used brown sugar plus cinnamon/sugar in the middle (like Cinnabon does). Will have to try them again to see whether which way is better :p All in all, they came out really good... best cinnamon bun recipe I have tried!

  • OH MY GOSH!!! It"s 12:30 at night and I just had one right out of the oven. We don"t have a Cinnibons in Canada, so I can"t say if they are the same, but these are the best cinnimon buns I have ever tasted! I hope that they are still soooooo good when they are cold, like in the morning. I made one pan with just a bit of butter on the pan, but i still glazed the top, they were really good too. Thanks for the recipe.

  • This is the best! YUM!I added rasins soaked in rum and used a whiskey sauce insted and it is even better, It looks complicated but in fact it is very easy and I don't cook! Thanks Robbie~

  • just like everyone elses comments- I agree. Not only delicious but very easy to work with. Dough was very managable and airy which made it a cinch to handle. Those that had bad comments about the recipe probably didnt follow the directions well and were disapointed with their results. I recomend trying again. These are so good!

  • This is the best thing I have ever eaten. It is not that difficult to make. I don't bake and I made it to perfection. I did add raisins and nuts, it was great.My family is in heaven~Thanks Robbie you Rock!!!

  • Amazing!! These rolls don't last a day after I've made them. Super simple and well worth the effort!

  • These rolls were fantastic, just like the real thing. We put Christmas sprinkles on them for the holiday season.

  • These are sooo yummy! I did make one mistake in trying to shorten the rising times because I was running late, so the middle ones were not done enough. I am going to make them again letting them rise the right amount of time. I am just afraid I might eat the whole pan! Everyone at the family gathering LOVED them and asked for them at our Christmas brunch. I will be making them again before then because I can't wait that long

  • Excellent! To save time in the AM, I made the dough the night before (up to the roll part) cut it and placed it into the refridgerator overnight. It rose slightly overnight and I set it in a warm spot for 20 mins in the AM then baked it. Worked perfectly.

  • My little Kitchen,didn't know what hit it, my family thinks they should be a Sunday Routine, I have to agree. love the recipe

  • my hubby has been making them since about 2 years ago. we just love them so much when i was pregnant he use to make them every day for me lol for sure a keeper thanks robbie

  • I have made your recipe for the last few years. My family loves these and requests them at every family function. I love to bake and they are very simple to make. Thank you so much!!

  • I just tried this recipe and it turned out beautifully. I have never made any kind of bread before and was quite unsure. The recipe is really good...and the rolls were so soft. My husband Loved the rolls and and the house smelled like a bakery when he walked in after work. I used Bread flour instead of all purpose (the lady at the local baking store suggested it). I also used soft brown sugar to mix wt the cinnamon. Recipe makes so many rolls....served it for prayer meeting and still had left over for my parents and in laws. Rolls still nice and soft when reheated in oven after refrigerated. Thank you so much for the Recipe. It really has given me so much confidence to bake some more. Thanks from Malaysia

  • I love this recipe!!!! I've tried others but they don't even compare. Everyone I make them for love them. They don't ask for the recipe, I guess they figure its one of my specialties!

  • WOW! These are the best cinnamon rolls I've ever tasted and the seven family members of mine that tried them agreed. I was only hoping to be as good as Cinnabon, but they are actually...dare I say it...BETTER! Well worth the work and we plan to make these a family Christmas tradition now. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe!

  • i tried this recipe with a lot of expectations,but was sadly disappointed. The filling melted and stuck to the bottom of the pan, by the time that the rolls were golden brown, the filling that drooped to the bottom of the pan had turned black in color

  • Robbie: Theres an old saying when I went to Culinary school; a chef is not a baker and a baker is not a chef. Boy was I wrong, this chef produced the best ever and very proud of homself and you for sharing the recipe. THANK YOU

  • it was good thank you

  • This recipe is awesome! I've baked these cinnamon rolls half a dozen times, and everyone loves them. My boyfriend practically mauled me after tasting one for the first time!! I'm getting ready to make about 50 of them for coworkers. Lots of time put in, but well worth it!

  • Amazing. I love to bake, but I consider myself a novice cook. I don't do much with bread. Turns out I used old yeast, so they didn't rise as expected. However, I listened to my mom and left the dough out overnight. They had risen by morning, so I went ahead and made the rolls and they turned out marvelous! The recipe was easy for a young cook, and the rolls turned out even w/ old yeast! And the maple frosting is to die for. THANKS ROBBIE!

  • These are better than Cinnabon. I was so proud to serve these to my family and they loved them! Robbie you are making the world a very happy place, one cinnamon roll at a time!

  • this recipe looks and sounds delicous! but reality is it takes forever cook! it takes longer to PREPARE than it does actual cooking time! the ingrediants should be expressed better than they were. the right amount of flour should have been listed instead of guesstamets.! they turned out great but the ingrediant instuctions arnt very vivid!

  • WOW! It turned out so good! My husband & our 2yr old son loved it! The recipe is a keeper. Thank you!

  • I love to bake & had a craving for Cinnabon so thought I would try your recipe. OMG! These are the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had, even better than Cinnabon. My husband, who doesn't like sweets, has also fallen in love with these. Thank you, Thank you, Thank You!

  • Best Ever. I have made a few versions of the Cinnabon recipe and these are by far the best. The dough was so moist and just fell apart. I have nothing bad to say and promise to pass on the goodness.

  • This recipe was great, I am making it for a second time, and will make two rolls, to make them smaller, as they were very big - the recipe makes a lot - but they are GREAT, so it is not a bad thing, unless you are on a diet!

  • My search for the BEST EVER cinnamon bun recipe is over. Thank you! Great recipe, even better results. I will definetely make this recipe again and again.

  • Oh my gosh these are amazing!! Stop now and bookmark this page so you never lose this recipe. I had made these before and LOVED them, lost the recipe so my online search began tried tons of recipes none were as good as these. As soon as I stumbled onto this site again I recognized it. The entire family loves them. I don't think these are any more work than any cinnamon bun recipe from scratch and totally worth it!

  • delicious, I did find though that a 9 x 13 pan would have never held all of the buns. I put them into my lasagna pan, got 12 bigs buns and the two little ends. They were still tight and popped when cooked as they couldn't expand out. Will make this recipe again. I do the dough in my kitchen aid mix master and turn out to knead.

  • I have been baking for years and love love to try new recipes i have never made such amazing mouth watering large cinnamon buns i thought my recipe wus best untill now i will never go back WOW OH SO GOOD Thank you Mamaleall B.C.

  • everyone in the neighborhood told me they were better than cinnabon's and that they were the best they ever had

  • Wow! I just made these and tasted them piping hot from the oven! It's been a long time since I had a bun from Cinnabon's, but I remember that flavor. These taste identical, for sure. I did take a suggestion that I read and added some brown sugar to the filling, as well as adding cream cheese to the icing (I know for a fact that Cinnabon does). Oh, and I halved the recipe and it still made 10! I don't know what I would have done with double that! Anyway, thanks for the recipe. I don't think I would make these often, since they are just TOO good and fattening! Haha!

  • This is an awesome recipe! Made more than I realized. My three boys have already said I need to keep this recipe and put it in my recipe notebook. Thanks for a wonderful site with tons of recipes to keep me cooking.
    Fantastic!!!

  • Wonderful! A bit time consuming, but well worth it. My family raved about them...lol

  • This recipe rocks!!! Made it for my family and followed the recipe exactly. Perfect results, superlative taste. Thank you Robbie!

  • I absolutely love this recipe (as does everyone else) but I mess it up every time! The middle is always doughy and if I leave them in the oven longer, the edges get over done.

  • I've tried this and three other recipes for the copy cat version of Cinnabon rolls. This recipe gets the coveted 4 gold star out of the four recipes I've worked on. Not too many recipes are given the honor of being placed in my collection, this is the 'one and only' recipe I'll need for my rolls. The men that work for my husband, who get my baked goodies, agree this recipe was the very best. Thank you so much for sharing this with the rest of us!

  • Great rolls but Cinnabons have a cream cheese frosting: blend 8oz cream cheese, 8oz margarine. Then whip it 'til fluffy. Then add 1tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp lemon extract. Finally 16oz of powdered sugar. This worked grat with your fantastic rolls

  • These cinnamon rolls have been a thanksgiving tradition for the last 7 years. Every wednesday before Thanksgiving I make a double batch. Put them in the fridge and pull them out in the morning to bake. Then we eat them while watching the Macy's Day Parade. This year I made enough to take to church - 60 cinnamon rolls - so good = so worth it.

  • I had a recipe for cinnamon buns from a friend that I was using- they used to turn out hard, and sort of crunchy. Now I have the PERFECT recipe for cinnamon buns! These are AWESOME! Light, and airy. They melt in your mouth, and leave your fingers sticky- just the way I like them! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

  • Excellent rolls. Being from a high altitude area, mine rose alittle too much, so the second time I made them I put them into 3 cake pans. Perfect!!!

  • there great but i do know the recipe for the frosting take 1 part butter and 1 part cream cheese whip till light and fluffy slowly add 2 parts of powderer sugar and beat till fluffy very yummy

  • These were fun to make, but the flour portion was off, I had to add more flour to make them the right consitancy. But overall they were wonderful!!!

  • I made this yesterday and I brought some of them to a meeting I attended and everyone wanted the recipe. They all said they were better than the real thing. My husband took the rest of them to work today so now I have to make more. Gastric orgasmic!!!!

  • i thought it was too much butter, my rolls came out very, very buttery. it wasn't a problem for some but it was overwhelming for me. other than that they got rave reviews, many who tasted are asking when will i be making more!

  • A variation using this recipe: "French Toast Cinnamon Buns" Cut each day-old bun in half horizontally and dip into a mixture of 3 eggs, 3/4 c. milk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1/4 tsp. salt. Place in a non-stick frypan in which a 1/2 Tbsp. of butter has been melted. Cook multiples for 3-4 minutes per side until lightly browned. Can be kept warm in an oven that has been heated to 200F and then turned off. Add toppings of your choice.

  • These were really great, not like Cinnabon, but still very great!!

  • couple hours later, my kitchen is a mess, and i feel like im gonna be sick... after 1/3 a roll. damn they are good! im not sure i like the maple bar inspired icing though.... would prefer a regular vanilla or cream cheese even, but still delicious none the less. now what do i do with all the rest?!

  • This is exactly the same recipe I've used for years that came out of some cookbook. It's a pretty standard "from scratch" recipe for cinnamon buns. Good of course but nothing exceptional or unusual. I like a cream cheese frosting on these. I cut back the sugar a bit as they are too sweet for me and I used bread flour.

  • The best!
