Easy Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

*This post may contain affiliate links

My recipe for easy bread machine cinnamon rolls makes a light and fluffy cinnamon roll, loaded with cinnamon and sugar swirl and topped with cream cheese frosting that is as airy as a cloud. This is the nicest cinnamon roll recipe I have ever used. Over the years, I have tweaked it just how my family likes it. Thanksgiving morning, I start these rolls early enough that the house is filled with delicious smells when everyone else starts waking up.

If you have never worked with sweet dough, remember it is sticky and softer than normal bread dough. Don’t be afraid to use a little flour on your board when patting the dough into shape. A silicone mat would be a great tool for this.
