This bread-machine recipe is my new favorite. The cream cheese filling and drizzled icing make these golden brown rolls a special treat for breakfast or snacking. —Alice Shepherd, Maryville, Tennessee

Directions

  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the pudding mix, baby food and cinnamon until smooth. Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes; stir.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 2, 2010

This is our absolute favorite cinnamon roll recipe! They are super soft and sweet. Wonderful goodness! You'd never guess there was carrot or baby food in it, but I think the baby food lends to the tenderness. We often make them for contractors working at our place and they rave over them.

I always keep a jar of baby food on hand with my other staple ingredients so they can be mixed up at any time.
