Let’s bake Molten Cinnamon Rolls!

Cinnamon Roll with Filling

Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Take two cinnamon roll dough biscuits from the refrigerated biscuit tube and press them flat into circles.

In a medium bowl, mix together 8 ounces of cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and stir until smooth.

Add 1/2 cup milk and stir until there are no lumps.

Freeze cream cheese mixture for about 1 hour until frozen but not too hard.

Scoop out a large spoonful of the mixture and place it in the center of one of the cinnamon roll dough circles.

Fold the edges of the dough up the sides of the cream cheese scoop.

Place the other flattened dough circle on top, using a spoon to tuck the edges underneath.

Repeat with the remaining dough and cream cheese.

Place the sealed dough balls upside down in a 9×9 cake pan with the seams facing upwards.
