 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup eggnog
  • 7 Tablespoons butter, melted and divided
  • For the filling
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
  • For the frosting
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 Tablespoon eggnog
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


1. Stir together the filling ingredients until it looks like wet sand. Set aside.

2. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Create a hole in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the eggnog and 2 Tablespoons melted butter. Use a fork to stir together to form a soft dough. (You can also use a mixer if you like.) Place the dough on a well floured surface. Knead the dough a few times to work a little bit of flour into the dough. Do not add too much flour or your rolls will be tough. Use your hands to gently press the dough into a 10x14 rectangle, keeping some flour between the dough and counter. Spread the dough with 2 Tablespoons melted butter, and sprinkle the filling over the top. Leave about a 1/2 inch border all around the dough. Slowly roll up from the shortest side. If the dough sticks to the counter, use a spatula to gently lift it up as you roll. Cut the roll into 9 even pieces.

3. Spread 1 Tablespoon melted butter in the bottom of a 8x8 baking dish. Place the 9 rolls in the pan with room around each one. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 minutes. Let cool slightly.

4. Beat together all the frosting ingredients. Serve the warm rolls with frosting. Makes 9 cinnamon rolls.

5. The unfrosted rolls can be stored in a sealed container on the counter. Keep the frosting in the refrigerator. These can also be reheated the next day for 10-15 seconds in the microwave, before adding frosting.
