so we're having a big easter brunch at church. sorta potluck style. i got wrangled into the cinnamon rolls.
i have a new bread machine, and have tried 2 different recipes, and so far i'm just not pleased.
i have a rep, as being a excellent cook, and i just can't bring second rate rolls!
i got the whole method down. but.... the dough is not sweet enough. and all the recipes i've seen just call for butter, sugar and cinnamon for the filling. (nuts and rasins optionl)
they come out dry, (IMO) and totally unexciting. boring. not enough filling.
could i incorporated some cream cheese with the sugar and cinnamon to make them more moist and gooey?
also when i bake them, they are just flat looking.
i am going to do one more dry run, before sunday.
i'm thinking about doing all milk instead of the water in the basic dough, 2 eggs, and probably about 1/2 cup sugar, also adding cinnamon into the dough.
any other pointers someone can help me with.
also going to do a cream cheese frosting instead of the regualr icing. how about some orange zest???
any suggestions would be appreciated.

The following rolls are SO good. Sometimes instead of using Cinnamon I turn them into ORANGE rolls by using a combination of grated orange rind and suger.... source: THE BREAD MACHINE MAGIC BOOK OF HELPFUL HINTS by: Lois Conway and Linda Rehberg (1) Place all ingred. in bread pan, (2) Dough setting, press start (3) When dough has risin long enough, the machine will beep (4) Turn off the machine, remove bread pan. (5) Turn out dough onto a floured countertop or cutting board. For 1-1/2 pound DOUGH: Pour the melted butter for the glaze into one 9x13x2 inch pan or two 8 or 9 inch round cake pans; sprinkle with brown sugar. With a rolling pin, roll dough into a 9x18 inch rectangle. For 1 pound DOUGH: Pour the melted butter for the glaze into one 9" round or square cake pan; sprinkle with brown sugar. With a rolling pin, roll dough into a 9x14 inch rectangle. For the FILLING: (1) Brush melted butter on the dough (2) In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins; (3) Sprinkle over dough. (4) Starting with long edge, roll up dough; pinch seams to seal. (5) With a knife, lightly mark roll into 1-1/2" sections. (6) Slide a 12" piece of dental floss or heavy thread underneath. (7) By bringing the ends of the floss up and crisscrossing them at the top of each mark, you can cut through the roll by pulling the strings in opposite directions. (8) Place rolls cut side up in prepared pan(s). (9) Flatten them slightly. (Rolls can be coverd w/foil at this point and refrigerated or frozen for 1 month. Before baking, allow rolls to thaw completely and rise in a warm oven for at least 30 minutes.) (10) Cover/let rise in a warm oven 30-45 minutes till doubled. (Hint: To warm oven slightly, turn oven on Warm setting for 1 minute, then turn it off, and place covered dough in oven ro rise. Remove pan(s) from oven to preheat.) (11) Preheat oven to 350?. Bake 25-30 minutes until golden brown. (12) Remove from oven and immediately invert rolls onto a large platter or serving dish. Serve warm. 1-1/2 pound dough yields 12 rolls, 1 pound dough yields 9 rolls
This is the recipe I use and my hubby loves them. Hope this may help.

I don't hate any of your ideas.
This is my Cinnamon Roll Recipe & I must say, it is popular.
3c bread flour
2 1/2t yeast or 1 packet
Measure all ingredients into bread machine with the water & butter on the bottom & the yeast on the top & set on dough cycle.
2T softened butter
Flatten dough w/ hands or rolling pin into a 9” square on a floured surface. Spread the softened butter on the dough & sprinkle cinnamon & sugar mixture.
Roll dough up tightly; pinch edge if dough to seal. Cut into 1” slices. Place in pan. Cover & let rise in warm place for 1-1 ¼ hrs until double in size.
Heat oven to 375*. Bake 20-25 mins. Remove from pan to wire rack. Drizzle glaze over warm rolls.
Linda’s Buttercream Frosting
2c powdered sugar
2T warm milk
Mix ingredients & mix the heck out of them until smooth.
I usually roll my dough out larger, 12X12. And, I use dental floss to cut the rolls. I still use my air bake 9X13 pan. I underbake my rolls by a couple of minutes. I don't like them dry.
These are my roll secrets & I have the rolls to prove that they are good.

I was looking for a recipe too and Cook's Country has two. One has a brioche style dough which may give you the sweetness in the roll itself that you're looking for.
If you don't belong to CC there are plenty of sites that have reposted this.

I watched Giada make cinnamon rolls this morning Season 4 Episode 13 and I have made Valerie Bertinelli's recipe for Christmas Cinnamon rolls at least 4 times. They are terrific.

i love the pioneer woman's recipe for cinnamon rolls. it makes a lot. it doesn't use a breadmaker but it's an easy recipe. i will try a cream cheese frosting next time, though.

@kittylooAlso, use good cinnamon. It doesn't have to be Penzey's, but their's is really good.
McCormick & Spice Island are good, too.
Make sure your cinnamon is fresh. I know if you don't bake much, that cinnamon may have been in the cupboard for a couple of years (Or more) & you don't even think about it.
