Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing

It may be the influence of the Great British Bake Off or just because I love a sweet treat but I have been getting into some serious baking! Over the weekend I tried out these Cinnamon Rolls for a friends dinner party and they turned out wonderfully!
Perfect with a cup of tea or some ice cream!

1 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Sugar
3 Tsp Yeast
75g Melted Butter
2 Eggs, room temperature
1 Tsp Salt
5 Cups Flour

75g Butter 
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3 Tsp All Spice

50g Cream Cheese
300g Icing Sugar
Vanilla Pod
30g Butter

Combine Milk and Sugar then add the yeast (make sure the milk is room temperature). Let sit for 5 minutes. Add butter, eggs, salt and 2 cups of the flour to the yeast mixture. Stir until mixed and then add a cup of flour at a time until you have dough. Knead for about 10 mins making sure the dough is not sticky. Place in a greased glass bowl, cover and place in warm place to rise for 1 hour. 

Roll dough out to about 15x20 inches. Mix the filling ingredients and spread onto dough. Roll from the long edge & cut into twelve equal pieces. Transfer to a greased baking dish, cover and leave to rise for a further 30 minutes. 

Bake rolls for 18~20 minutes at 200 degrees until golden brown & touching each other. Whilst baking make icing but mixing the ingredients together.
