Yields4 large servings

Preparation Time15 min

Cooking Time25 min

Cooking MethodCasserole, Oven


  • 8 frozen cinnamon rolls with icing (like Rhode's), thawed and risen according to package
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • For the Topping (optional):
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Once cinnamon rolls have risen, spray an 8 x 8 inch pan with cooking spray. Arrange 4 cinnamon rolls in the pan and press them down a bit to mostly cover the bottom.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread the cream cheese mixture over top the cinnamon rolls.
  4. Place 4 more cinnamon rolls on top the cream cheese mixture and lightly press down so they mostly reach to the edges of the pan.
  5. If you'd like to use the optional brown sugar topping, combine butter, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture on top of the cinnamon rolls.
  6. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until the top is nice and brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Pipe the icing over top, and cut into 4 large pieces or 8 small pieces.

I didn't know that Rhodes makes a cinnamon roll to bake off. I will have to look for a package. I never thought about using a package and changing it up with additional ingredients. Having a stuffed cinnamon roll sounds quite elegant. I don't think I'd use the brown sugar addition. I would probably use a white sugar - cinnamon mixture with the butter for a syrupy topping.

Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite comfort foods. I had to try this recipe. I made this for breakfast this past weekend, and this was a big hit. The double layer of cinnamon rolls made me never want to have regular cinnamon rolls again. I think this ruined me for plain cinnamon rolls. The only thing I did differently was used a powdered sugar icing instead of brown sugar.

Oh my goodness...I had no idea Rhodes made cinnamon roll dough! I've been trying forever to make perfect cinnamon rolls and still am on a mission to do so, but with these rolls, I may take my time. lol, Maggie, I thought maybe trying to add some raisins or even some chopped apples to change it up a little. Although I'm a little curious now after reading your post about bacon Anie, I might have to try that as well.

I can't wait to try this out. I love cinnamon rolls anyway so this is something I'm eager to try. Something I'd like to experiment with is trying out some flavored cream cheeses for the filling. Perhaps the strawberry variety from Kraft, or the seasonal ones, like salted caramel, that Aldi's carried last year, or a homemade variety.

This is so rich. A little bit will go along way with me. I don't think it needs the topping, but if you have a sweet tooth, go for it. It is very simple to make. I like making my cinnamon rolls, or other breakfast meals, the night before and leave them in the fridge to bake in the morning.

I like this recipe a lot! Cinnamon rolls are such a delicious, sweet treat. Does anyone have any ideas on how to be creative with them? I feel like all of the recipes that use cinnamon rolls are the same. I'm looking for some creativity! Please help!

This recipe sounds so good. I have seen and tried other similar recipes. With being a busy mom and grandma this seems to be very easy and take hardly any time to prepare. I look forward to trying this recipe soon. I know my grandchildren will enjoy helping their Mimi make this. One thing that I was thinking would be good with it is bacon. I could cook the bacon and mix it in or just crumble it on top. Or both!

This recipe is amazing! So indulgent but so worth it.

I made Extra cream Cheese mix and put it in the fridge for later. So the leftovers can taste even better.
