Festive for a Holiday treat or anytime of the year, these Cinnabon Roll Muffin are delightful and smell great while baking!

One of the best smells to me is cinnamon in the house. These muffin rolls makes your mouth water before they even come out of the oven.

During the holiday, I always make them all dressed up with a cherry on top and tinted green sliced almonds or pistachios. They look so pretty on the table at Christmas time.

My kids love cinnamon rolls. These rolls reminded them of a famous roll in the mall we would get.
Everytime I make them they are so excited to dig in.

They are delicious anytime of the day and being made in a cupcake tin make them portable to take along to work or on the go!

My holiday muffins are always wrapped in cellophane and I give a big basket of rolls for gifts to friends and family during the holiday season. Great for entertaining visitors that stay here in Florida. All you have to do is wrap them in foil and reheat!!

2 eggs room temperature
1/2 cup warm milk place in microwave 20 seconds
1/3 cup butter melted
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour or bread flour ( I have used both the bread flour makes them much lighter in texture which I prefer)
2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar


1 cup brown sugar
 2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup softened butter
Mix all together.

Icing Recipe:

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


In a large mixer dissolve yeast in warm water stirring. Add the milk, butter, salt, eggs and half the flour, beat until smooth. Add the remaining flour and using a dough hook beat until smooth and elastic. Cover with oil sprayed plastic wrap and rise until doubled in size.

Roll out dough into a large triangle. Spread the filling, roll up like a jelly roll. Slice into 2 inch thick pieces and place in an oiled sprayed non stick muffin pan.
While still warm drizzle with prepared frosting. If using the cherries and pistachios place immediately after frosting onto the muffin for garnish.
