  3. Cover the dough and let it rest for about 10 minutes to meld the flavors.
  4. Knead the dough using a dough hook for 15 minutes on medium speed.
  5. Form the dough into a smooth ball, grease it lightly with oil, and let it sit in a covered bowl for 1 to 1.5 hours until it doubles in size.
  6. Once risen, punch down the dough.
  7. Roll out the dough into a 12x12-inch square on a floured surface.
  8. Mix the filling ingredients and spread them over the rolled dough.
  9. Roll the dough into a tight log, cut it into 9 pieces, and place them in a buttered 9-inch square or round pan.
  10. Allow the rolls to rise for about 45 minutes.
  11. (Optional) Pour cream over the risen rolls for extra gooeyness! Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 25-30 minutes.
  12. Whip together the frosting ingredients and generously cover the warm cinnamon rolls. Enjoy!
