  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Separate dough into 8 rolls; place rolls cinnamon sides up 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in small bowl, place icing (from can of cinnamon rolls) and cream cheese; beat with spoon until well blended. Stir in powdered sugar until mixed well. Divide icing mixture between two small bowls; tint one bowl with blue food color to desired color. Cover and refrigerate until ready to decorate.
  • 4
    Press down on tops of cinnamon rolls to flatten slightly before decorating. Spread 1 tablespoon of the icing mixture on top of each roll. Add cookie icing, sprinkles and decorating sugar to decorate with various snowflake options, as desired, using photo as a guide.

  • Use blue gel food color instead of liquid food color so it doesn't thin the frosting too much. You can find it next to the liquid food colors in the baking aisle at the grocery store.

Expert Tips

  • To soften cream cheese quickly, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate. Microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or until just softened.
  • Cool cinnamon rolls completely before decorating—this prevents the icing mixture from sliding off the sides due to the heat from the rolls.
