Now evenly spread the 4 tablespoons of softened butter onto the dough. Then sprinkle the cinnamon mixture evenly over the top of the dough as well.
Take the dough and roll it up from short end to short end. Use a knife to cut the dough into 8 rolls. Then line your baking dish with parchment paper or oil your dish and then place your cinnamon rolls in. Allow the rolls to rise for another 20 minutes.
Now bake at 400 F for about 14 minutes. Let the cinnamon rolls cool.
