Ingredients & Substitutions
*Ingredient amounts are located in the recipe card at the end of this post.
Pre-Packaged Cinnamon Roll Dough– I used Pillsbury brand canned cinnamon rolls, but as I have seen on TikTok, any brand will work just fine, including store brand. Two double this recipe, use two cans of Pillsbury Grands cinnamon rolls.
Heavy Whipping Cream- You could substitute whole milk for the heavy cream, but I find that the rolls are much richer and moister with the heavy cream.
Butter- I used salted butter in this recipe, but you could use unsalted if that is what you have on hand. The amount of butter can also be increased or decreased, depending on your preferences.
Cinnamon- I like to use a lot of cinnamon in my rolls, but you could start with 1/2 teaspoon and add more to taste.
Brown Sugar- You could substitute white sugar for the brown sugar, but I find that the brown sugar gives the rolls a deeper flavor.
Cream Cheese Frosting- I never feel like the packages of cinnamon rolls have enough frosting, so I always add more. If you’re a frosting lover like me, you can use pre-made frosting like Betty Crocker, or you can make your own using my favorite recipe here.

[Step 4] Bake the cinnamon rolls according to the package directions. I baked mine at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
