What are Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls?

The best thing ever, that’s what they are. But really, Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls are regular cinnamon rolls but the regular milk is swapped for Eggnog. Plus, I added Eggnog to the Cream Cheese Glaze for the top. I could eat it with a spoon. (and have)

The best Eggnog, no question, is Hiland Dairy Old Fashioned Eggnog. A creamy and thick traditional eggnog with classic flavors like cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg. The flavor and consistency of the Hiland Eggnog makes the dough incredibly soft and the flavor is cozy and warm. Perfect for the holidays. Hiland Eggnog is a consistent purchase in our house. They also have Eggnog for other holidays throughout the year so keep your eye out at the store!

  • cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¾ cup Hiland Dairy Eggnog
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • tsp instant yeast 1 standard packet
  • 1 egg

Filling

  • 3 tbsp butter room temperature
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

Cream Cheese Glaze

  • 4 oz Hiland Dairy Cream Cheese ½ Slovak
  • 2 tbsp Butter room temperature
  • 3 tbsp Hiland Dairy Eggnog
  • cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Dough

  • In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, and salt. Whisk together and set aside.
  • In a separate microwave safe bowl, add the butter and Hiland Dairy Eggnog. Microwave in 30 second increments until butter is melted and mixture is hot.
  • Add the yeast to the butter/Eggnog mixture and whisk together until yeast is dissolved. Pour the Eggnog mixture into the flour mixture. Add the egg to the bowl as well.
  • Using a wooden spoon, mix everything together until combined. Use your hands to mix if it becomes too thick for the spoon. Dough should be slightly sticky, but not unmanageable. If too sticky, add a Tablespoon of flour and mix again.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and use your hands to knead the dough for 2-3 minutes. Dough should not be sticky and have a smooth surface.
  • Spray a bowl with nonstick spray and place dough inside and cover with a kitchen towel. Set aside for 20 minutes.

Filling

  • In a small bowl, mix the butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Mix together until combined. Set aside.
  • Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll out the dough to approximately a 14x8 rectangle. Spread the brown sugar mixture over the rolled out dough and spread out evenly.
  • Roll up the dough from the long side. Cut about 10-12 evenly sized rolls and place in a 9-10 inch round or square baking dish.l
  • Cover with plastic wrap or foil and let the rolls rise for about 90 minutes. They should double in size.
  • After the rolls have risen, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly cover the pan with foil and bake for 24-26 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool.

Icing

  • Using a stand mixer or hand held mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add the powdered sugar, salt, Hiland Eggnog, and vanilla. Mix again until combined and smooth.
  • While the Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls are still warm, spread the icing over the top. Serve warm. Enjoy!
  • Storage: Cover leftover rolls with plastic wrap or foil and store at room temperature.
