I am a big fan of danish and cinnamon rolls. Especially when they are made with a cream cheese filling. I love easy Sunday mornings, getting up and enjoying my coffee while everyone slowly trickles into the kitchen while still rubbing their eyes.
Making quick cinnamon rolls, that are easy on me, but have big flavor is a great way for me to start the day. I used these easy fix Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls as a base to make my Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls. They even come with packages of icing! Thaw out your cinnamon rolls in a baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Once they are thawed completely, use the handle of a wooden spoon to open up the rolls in the center. I just wiggled the spoon around to make a space about an inch wide. Open all the cinnamon rolls up so they have a space for us to add the cream cheese filling. In a mixing bowl, I beat one 8oz. package of cream cheese, 1 cup of sugar, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla. I love this little cheese recipe, I call it my one one one recipe. Once the cheese and sugar are creamed together, add the egg and the vanilla, then mix to blend well. Use a teaspoon and dollop tablespoons of the filling into each open space of the cinnamon rolls. Allow to rise about 30 minutes, then bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Until golden brown. Pull the rolls out of the oven, allow to cool about 1-15 minutes. Knead the packages of icing, then drizzle over the rolls. They are ready to enjoy.
