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

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) carrot baby food
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine pudding mix, baby food and cinnamon until smooth. Cover and microwave on high for 2 minutes; stir.
When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half; shape each portion into a ball. Roll each into a 9-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Spread cream cheese mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges; top with carrot mixture. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal.
Cut each into six rolls. Place cut side up in two greased 9-in. square baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks for 5 minutes. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"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."
