Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • For the dough and filling: Lightly butter two 8-inch round baking pans.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 15- by 7-inch rectangle. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Spread the softened butter over the dough. Sprinkle the dough evenly with the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Starting at the long edge, roll up the dough as for a jelly roll. Pinch the seam to seal. Cut the rolled dough into 16 slices and divide the slices between the prepared baking pans. Set aside in a warm place and allow the dough to rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake until golden on top, about 15 minutes. Promptly invert the baking pan over a wire rack and lift the pan from the buns. Scoop any filling that has remained in the pans over the buns. Allow the buns to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, for the icing: In a medium bowl, beat the butter, sugar, cream cheese and vanilla with an electric mixer until fluffy. Spread the icing over the rolls. Serve warm.
