Easy Cinnamon Rolls Using Frozen Bread Dough

I got this one from a friend who got it off the internet someplace. I don't buy frozen bread dough, but sometimes I make extra homemade and freeze loaves of it myself. Because of this, I figured it would be a great recipe to have on hand. I also have a love of sweetened condensed milk... and anything made with it has got to be good!

Easy Cinnamon Rolls

2 loaves frozen bread dough, thawed
2/3 cup Eagle Brand® sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Chopped pecans

On a lightly floured surface roll each of the bread dough loaves to a 12x9-inch rectangle. Spread 1/3 cup Eagle Brand over dough rectangles. Sprinkle with pecans and cinnamon. Roll up jellyroll style starting from a short side. Cut each into 6 slices.

Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan. Place rolls, cut sides down, in pan. Cover loosely with greased parchment or waxed paper and then with plastic wrap. Let pan of rolls stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake in preheated 350°F (180°C) oven 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes; loosen edges and remove rolls from pan.

For frosting, in small bowl, combine powdered sugar, remaining 1/3 cup condensed milk and vanilla. Drizzle frosting over warm rolls. Sprinkle with additional chopped pecans if desired.Print Friendly and PDF
