¼ cup butter, softened at room temperature
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar

  7. Brush the top of the dough with butter over and then sprinkle cinnamon and sugar (use a strainer).

  12. Prepare the Frosting: Using an electric mixer, cream together the cream cheese, softened butter and vanilla until smooth. Add the powdered sugar and continue mixing until fluffy and smooth as a frost.
  13. Once the rolls are cooled, start to spread the cream cheese frost all over the rolls. Serve and enjoy.
