Weight Watchers Cinnamon Rolls With Cream Cheese Frosting

The Weight Watchers Tastier Than Takeout cookbook may be my favorite of all the Weight Watchers cookbooks! Last Sunday, we made (okay the wife made) the Cinnamon Rolls With Cream Cheese Frosting found on page 235! We had been looking at this recipe for AGES and finally took the plunge to make them.

And they were DELICIOUS!!!!

**If you want the full recipe, you will need to purchase the WW Tastier Than Takeout cookbook, but here is a snippet about them...




brown sugar

granulated sugar



all-purpose flour

granulated sugar

baking powder

baking soda


fat-free buttermilk


unsalted butter


confectioners' sugar

light cream cheese

fat-free buttermilk

vanilla extract



*To make filling: simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.

*To make dough: spray baking dish with nonstick spray. Whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, egg and butter in small bowl. Add flour mixture and stir until dough forms. Turn dough onto floured surface and knead until smooth.

*With floured rolling pin, roll out dough on floured surface to 12x9 inch rectangle. Brush dough with butter and sprinkle with flour mixture. Tightly roll up dough from long side. Pinch seams to seal.

*Turn seam side down, and with serrated knife, cut into 12 slices. Arrange cut-side down in pan.

*Cover pan with foil & bake. Remove foil and bake until rolls are golden. Let cool.

*To make frosting: with electric mixer, beat all ingredients in small bowl until smooth.

*Spread frosting on rolls and let stand.


The rolls were absolutely phenomenal and worth every point. You could have 1 for 6 PP or 2 for 11 PP. Mmmm... I would recommend this recipe to anyone. Just pick up the cookbook and the entire recipe could be yours!!! :) :)
