If you’re looking for that perfect cinnamon roll recipe, you are in luck. Not only are these the fluffiest, softest rolls, but they are the easiest I’ve ever made and they turned out JUST AS DELICIOUS as bakery fresh cinnamon rolls. This, my friends, is my new go-to cinnamon roll recipe.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder & salt.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until pea size pieces.
Add the cold buttermilk all at once and mix until dough forms a ball. Let the dough sit.In a separate bowl cream the butter then blend in the cinnamon & sugar.
Roll the dough tightly and cut into 2 1/2″ pieces.
Place in a lightly greased pan and get ready to pop them in the oven.
Bake 18-22 minutes, until golden brown.
While the cinnamon rolls are cooling, whip together the cream cheese drizzle, adding more sugar for a thicker drizzle, or more corn syrup for a lighter drizzle.
I do have to tell you that this cream cheese icing is to die for! I could lick the bowl, it’s that good.
Serve warm for an extra special treat!

I have the worst luck with cinnamon rolls something about the rising part. These are just up my alley.
Dawn Nieves says
I’ve never made homemade cinnamon rolls before but I think I’m going to have to try these. My family loves them and there’s nothing better than homemade.
My family loves Cinnamon rolls on the weekends but I have never made homemade ones before. These look super simple and yummy, I will have to try them soon!
Lisa Jones says
Wow these look so amazingly delicious I can’t wait to make a batch.
Since they are no-rise, I wonder just how dense they are. Not necessarily a bad thing, just can’t eat as much!
Toni | BoulderLocavore.com says
These rolls look delicious! The last time I made cinnamon rolls they loved it. And this is a perfect time to try a new roll recipe!
You made these from scratch? Wow! I bet they tasted amazing! We only make the ones that come already prepared in the tube but I’m sure it’s doesn’t compare to these. I can almost smell them!

YUM! My daughter asked me this past weekend to try to make a from scratch roll, I said it was too much work, after looking at your pics and recipe- I think I can, I think I can! These look GREAT!
Lisa Jones says
These look so yummy and easy to make. I must try making some in the near future for the kids thank you.
I have never made cinnamon rolls on my own. My kids love them so this looks like a great recipe for me to try!
Yours look so good and fresh. I have never made my own cinnamon rolls but I imagine I’d love this recipe. They often look too processed if you buy them at stores. I’d take these anyday!

Oh stop it, you’re killing me. Cinnamon rolls are one of my downfalls. I could eat a whole pan full. And I just might when I try your recipe.
Yum! I love cinnamon rolls and your recipe looks so tasty. Perfect to eat with my morning coffee or afternoon snack. I definitely gotta try this.
