Back on topic though…these are an unique dessert/breakfast (?) that are sweet and rich while still being a lighter (not heavy filling) treat. They almost remind me of an ice cream sundae treat — the cinnamon roll is still slightly warm and the cheesecake filling is cold. The icing topping just ties it all together. They aren’t overly cheesecake-y, but more of an ultra-iced cinnamon roll. The cheesecake filling tastes like a lighter version of cream cheese frosting (less sugar, more cream cheese).

Serve ’em with some hot chocolate and they make a delicious wintery treat! And I believe there is just one last treat to share this December and then it’s on to lots of healthy food. I’ve got healthier baked goods, healthier dinners (soups and salads!), and some healthier snacks coming at cha for the end of December and throughout January! But, before then, eat as many of these as possible. 20 minutes, 5 ingredients Cheesecake Filled Cinnamon Rolls -- EASY and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2 packages Cinnamon Rolls 8 rolls each
  • 1 package (8 ounces) full-fat cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Optional: cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a regular-sized muffin tin generously with nonstick spray.
  • Remove the cinnamon rolls from the containers and set aside the icing.
  • Separate the rolls from each other.
  • Using a rolling pin and a lightly floured work surface, roll out each individual roll. (Quickly re-attach any of the cinnamon sugar pieces that attach themselves to the rolling pin on each individual cinnamon roll)
  • Evenly place each rolled out cinnamon roll into an individual cavity in the muffin tin.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes (My oven takes exactly 10 minutes) or until lightly golden brown on top. Be careful to not over-bake!
  • While they are baking, beat the at room temperature cream cheese until smooth. Add in the white sugar and beat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add in the vanilla extract.
  • Beat until mixed together.
  • In another bowl, beat the cold (straight out of the fridge) heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Be careful to not over-beat.
  • Using a spatula, gently fold together the whipped cream with the cream cheese mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into the cinnamon rolls (that have cooled to barely warm)
  • Warm the reserved icing in the microwave for 10 seconds and then generously drizzle evenly on top of the rolls. Put a pinch of some extra cinnamon on top of each roll if desired.
  • Best enjoyed as soon as they are made otherwise they aren't that great ๐Ÿ™‚
  • If you want to make these ahead of time, make the filling and store in the fridge. Roll out the cinnamon rolls and cover in the fridge. When ready to enjoy, bake the cinnamon rolls about 15 minutes before serving to give them 10 minutes cooking time and about 5 minutes cooling time before filling with the chilled cheesecake filling.

Recipe Notes

This recipe halves easily -- just use 1 container of cinnamon rolls and halve the filling recipe if desired.
