Directions

  • Step 1

    SPRAY a large bowl with no-stick cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    DISSOLVE yeast in warm water. Combine 1/2 cup milk, sugar, melted shortening, salt and egg in large bowl. Add 2 cups flour; mix until smooth. Add yeast mixture. Mix in just enough remaining flour until dough is easy to handle. Knead dough on lightly floured surface 5 to 6 minutes. Place in prepared bowl, cover and let rise until doubled in size, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

  • Step 3

    PUNCH down dough when it has doubled in size. Roll into a 15 x 9-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread melted butter over dough. Combine sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in small bowl; sprinkle over buttered dough. Beginning on one long side, tightly roll up dough; pinch edge together to seal. Cut into 12 slices.

  • Step 4

    HEAT oven to 350ºF. Spray bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with no-stick cooking spray. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in pan. Let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

  • Step 5

    BAKE 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

  • Step 6

    BEAT cream cheese until creamy. Add powdered sugar, beating until combined. Add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until thick but spreadable consistency. Beat until smooth. Spread over slightly cooled rolls. Serve warm.
