We discovered our cinnamon rolls have a new superpower: You can bake them stacked together into one delicious loaf! We filled this five-ingredient version with luscious almond-infused cream cheese and topped it with even more cream cheese icing and toasted almonds for an easy flavor twist in every single slice. One bite, and you'll be as obsessed with this idea as we are. MORE+ LESS-

Cut dough into 5 rolls. Place rolls in pan standing on sides, seam sides down, lined up and touching, looking as though they just came out of the can.

    Bake 30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil; bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until dough is baked through in center and deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes in pan. Loosen edges; remove from pan.

    Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir icing and remaining 1 oz cream cheese until smooth. Spread onto loaf; sprinkle with almonds. Cut into 6 slices. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • To toast almonds: Heat oven to 350°F. Spread almonds in a single layer in an ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown.
  • Have the kids help prep this loaf by spreading the cream cheese mixture onto the rolls, unrolling and rolling the dough, or topping with almonds after baking.
  • This loaf makes for a great addition to a brunch spread! Serve with fresh fruit, an egg bake, and bacon or sausage to round out the meal.
