Baking The Cinnamon Rolls Roll out the dough to 1/4" thick on a well-floured surface. Spread the filling to evenly cover the dough. Roll up the dough lengthwise, then cut into ¼”-½” slices. Place close together in the pan. Cover with a towel and let rise for about 20-30 minutes. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until browned. Making The Icing Mix the butter, vanilla, and milk together. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar until well combined. If the mixture is too thick, add a little bit of milk (1 Tablespoon at a time) until you get the desired consistency.
