Puff Pastry Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

Puff Pastry Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

Want cinnamon rolls but don't want to be bothered with bread dough?
Here is a great recipe that uses frozen puff pastry and can be in the oven in no time at all.
You can play with the ingredients and add nuts or leave out the raisins if you wish - you don't really even need the frosting...

Ingredients: 

Cinnamon Buns
454g (1 Lb) frozen puff pastry, defrosted
3 Tbsp (45 mL) butter, melted
¼ cup (60 mL) dark brown sugar
2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon
1 cup (250 mL) raisins
Frosting
60g (2 ounces) cream cheese
1 Tbsp (15 mL) butter, softened
¼ tsp (1 mL) pure vanilla extract

Makes: 8-16

Method: 

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180ºC)
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Roll out the puff pastry, depending on brand there may be 1 or 2 sheets.
Brush on the melted butter so it coats the pastry up to the edges.
Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon, and sugar.
Lightly press the cinnamon and sugar into the pastry. Sprinkle over the raisins.

Roll the dough into a tight log, or two. Cut into 8 - 16 even pieces and transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Remove from the oven and make the frosting.

Cream together the cream cheese, softened butter and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Gradually beat in the icing sugar until it reaches the desired consistency and sweetness.
Spread the frosting onto cinnamon rolls & serve immediately.
