One of the best parts about this recipe is that it can be prepared a day in advance and left overnight in the refrigerator or even better it can also be prepared weeks in advance and frozen, of course the baking part has to be done once you are in the mood to give yourself a treat. Just take it out of the fridge, unfreeze, bake and enjoy. Remember, if you refrigerate them, once taken out you should allow them to come to room temperature before baking.

There are basically four steps to this recipe

1 - PREPARING THE DOUGH

You can use a stand mixer for this but I prefer to use my hand. Sure, it’s a bit of a workout but definitely worth it once it done.
Combine fresh milk, sugar, whole egg, instant dry yeast, all purpose flour and a pinch of salt. Knead it with love into a dough preferably using your hands but a stand mixer can also be used. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes. Add in butter and knead into a smooth dough. Rub the surface of the dough with oil or butter and let it rest for about an hour and it should almost double in size.

3 - ASSEMBLING THE ROLLS

Place the dough on a floured baking surface, flatten it initially using you hands and then a rolling pin to flatten it evenly into a rectangular shape. The rolled dough should not be too thick.

Once done seal the edges and flip the roll seam down.

For cutting the dough you can use either dental floss or a sewing thread. You just need to slide the thread under the roll, wrap it around the top pull tight in a quick motion and you should have a clean sliced roll. Rolls can be cut into one inch slices. I had done marking with the same thread before cutting so i know exactly where to slice the dough roll.

Once all rolls are ready, cover them and let them rest for 30-40 minutes before baking. After 30-40 minutes bake in oven for 15-20 mins. Make sure the oven is preheated.

4 - PREPARING THE FROSTING / ICING

In a large bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, cream cheese milk and vanilla extract until it is very smooth and fluffy.

Apply frosting after baking while the rolls are still warm so they absorb the frosting flavor. You can also sprinkle the ground cinnamon over the frosting.
