Ingredients:

  • 2 (1 lb. each) frozen white yeast bread dough, thawed, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Premier White Morsels, divided
  • 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped, divided
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons milk

Directions:

GREASE two 9-inch-round baking pans.

ROLL 1 bread loaf into 16 x 10-inch rectangle on lightly floured surface.

SPREAD 1 tablespoon softened butter over dough. Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl; sprinkle 2 tablespoons over dough leaving 1/2-inch border around sides. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup morsels and 1/2 cup cranberries, firmly pressing morsels and cranberries into dough.

ROLL up dough tightly, starting at short end; seal edges with water. Cut into 6 slices; place cut side up in prepared baking pan. Repeat with remaining bread loaf, butter, sugar mixture, 3/4 cup morsels and cranberries; place in second prepared baking pan. Cover; let rise in warm place until dough almost fills pans, about 30 minutes.

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes in pans on wire racks.

MELT remaining morsels in small, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 30 seconds; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Stir in powdered sugar and milk to make a stiff glaze. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls.

TIP: For whole-wheat cinnamon rolls, substitute whole-wheat dough for the white bread dough.

    Made for Christmas morning

    Denice Fullerton from Austin, TX

    We made these for Christmas morning. My kids are not that fond of white chocolate, so I only put in half and add nuts for the other half. We enjoyed them with coffee and hot chocolate.

    I made these muffins yesterday and they were delicious. The recipe was simple and the result was spectacular. There is nothing like the smell of cinnamon when baking and my husband kissed the cook after he tried his first one. Definitely a keeper.

    Sharon Locey from Bayfield, WI

    I made these for our guests at Thimbleberry Inn Bed and Breakfast and they loved them! They usually get muffins so this was a real treat for them. I like to use the "craisins" in a lot of recipes so I definitely will add this recipe to my favorites.

    This was great and very easy--I only used one loaf for it and for the other loaf I put in chopped apples and dried cranberries - we had two different ones to try and they were great--I will most certainly make them again for the holidays.
