Sinn-a-rolls with Philly Phrosting Share Tags: dessert This is my mother's recipe for cinnamon rolls that I've adapted with some exotic spices. Star anise, coriander, and cayenne along with the Philadelphia Cream Cheese frosting make this Sinn-a-roll totally unique and unforgettable. I've simplified the dough by substituting ready-made pizza dough, so it cuts your prep time to hardly anything. Spread the decadent Philadelphia Cream Cheese frosting on these Sinn-a-rolls immediately out of the oven and get ready to have a truly iniquitous experience! Prep time: 25 minutes | Cook time: 25 minutes | Total time: 50 minutes | Servings: 6 16 ounce(s) of Pre-made Pizza Dough
1 1/2 tbsp. of Ground Cinnamon (4 Small Cinnamon Sticks)
1 tsp. of Ground Star Anise (1 Star Anise Pod)
1 tsp. of Coriander
1/2 tsp. of Cayenne
1/2 cup(s) of Sugar
4 tbsp. of Butter, softened
8 ounce(s) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
4 ounce(s) of Butter, softened
2 cup(s) of Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup(s) of Milk
In a small bowl, mix ground spices with the sugar. Set aside.
On a floured surface, roll dough into a large rectangle, about 12 inches in length and 8 inches in width.
Spread butter onto dough, leaving 1/2 inch on one long side, then add a thick layer of the spiced sugar.
Roll up dough towards the 1/2 inch unbuttered side. Pinch to close, and cut into 6 individual rolls about 2 inch wide.
Place cut rolls individually in a greased muffin pan, press down, and let proof 15 minutes.
To make Philly Phrosting, mix together Philadelphia Cream Cheese and 4 ounces softened butter.
Slowly add powdered sugar, one cup at a time. Blend until smooth. Mix in milk until desired thickness.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20-23 minutes.
Remove from muffin pan to plate.
Smother with Philadelphia Cream Cheese icing while hot. Enjoy!
