Cinnamon Rolls (clone of a cinnabon)

This is a recipe on Allrecipes and it is called a clone of a cinnabon. This particular recipe has like 4,000 positive reviews on their site. Sarah was told about this recipe by a friend and I am so glad she shared it. These are hands down the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had or made! The dough turns out perfect in the breadmaker. It is the perfect consistency and so easy to work with. The filling and frosting are perfect. These were even good the next day. I stored them in the fridge because of the cream cheese in the frosting. -Kristin
