Prepare the dough:

  1. In a large bowl, combine bread flour, salt, granulated sugar and dry yeast. Stir until well combined.
  2. Add the milk, cold water and heavy cream. Using a stand mixer on medium-low speed, knead for 8 minutes.
  3. Add the butter and continue to knead for another 20 minutes. You can also knead the dough on a floured surface for 8 to 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth and let it rise in a warm place for 40 minutes.
  5. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Prepare the filling:

  1. In a small bowl, mix softened butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon and salt until well combined.
  2. Once the dough has risen, roll it out and roll it out on a floured surface into a large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Spread the cinnamon mixture over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  4. Starting at one long edge, roll the dough up tightly to form a log.
  5. Cut the log into 8 to 12 equal slices using a sharp knife or a piece of flavorless dental floss.

Get ready for baking:

  1. In a small bowl, combine heavy cream, brown sugar, and salt, mixing until well combined.
  2. Pour the mixture into a buttered baking mold.
  3. Place the rolls in the prepared baking dish, leaving a little space between each roll.
  4. Cover the rolls with a towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes.
  5. Once the rolls have risen, bake them in the preheated oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Remove the buns from the oven and let them cool slightly while you prepare the glaze.

Prepare the frosting:

  1. In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined and creamy.
  3. Once the cinnamon rolls have cooled slightly, generously spread the cream cheese frosting on top of each roll.
