Cinnamon Roll Skillet

With Christmas just a couple of days away we had to share one of our Christmas morning favorites.  This Cinnamon Roll Skillet is everything you would want it to be and more.  It’s warm + gooey with swirls of sweet cinnamon + brown sugar + drizzled with the creamiest cream cheese frosting.  To wake up to the smell alone is heaven.  It is definitely a crowd pleaser + a great twist on a traditional favorite.

  • ⅓ c butter
  • 3¼ c flour
  • ¼ c sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 package active quick rise yeast
  • 1 egg

  3. Using the dough hook attachment on your mixer, knead while gradually adding in 1 c flour until the dough forms a ball & pulls aways from the edges of the bowl. You can also knead by hand.
