Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze
I’m not exaggerating when I write that I have been thinking about making these cinnamon rolls for five months. After posting my Sweet Potato Pecan Cinnamon Rolls last November, I started brainstorming other varieties and carrot cake immediately came to mind. I waited all of these months to make these cinnamon rolls because for some reason I associate carrot cake with Spring. Is it the bunnies? Easter? I’m not sure what the connection is, but I stuck to my guns and held off until now to create these Carrot Cake Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze. Indisputably a healthier recipe than that of most cinnamon rolls, this one calls for whole wheat pastry flour, applesauce, and a low amount of sugar. I know the directions list looks a bit intimidating, but I assure you none of the steps are too difficult. … rolling the dough up nice & snug and nestling the cut pieces into a cake pan. It’s so rewarding to peek at the rolls an hour later and behold them in their puffed-up risen glory.
