Directions:

Step 1

In a large bowl, add 3 & 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 tsp salt, and 3 tsp dried yeast. In a separate jug, add 3/4 cup milk, 1/3 cup water, 1/4 cup honey, and 1/4 cup butter.

Step 2

Now, transfer your dough to a floured surface. Roll out the dough, toss a little flour on top, then continue rolling lengthwise. After rolling out the dough, spread the filling on top evenly, then scatter some pecans (you can also use nuts or raisins.) Now, roll up your dough. Make a tight roll and then work your way towards the edge. After this, slice your dough 2″ thick with a sharp knife. Place your rolls in a deep baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover them in cling film, put a towel on top, and let them rise for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, place the cinnamon rolls in the oven at 375 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. While the cinnamons are baking, it’s time to make the cream cheese glaze. In a bowl, add 4 oz cream cheese and 1/4 cup butter. Mix them together with a whisk until combined,  then add 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Mix until well combined. Spread the cream cheese glaze over the cinnamon rolls while they’re still warm.
