When Gaston was a lad he ate four dozen eggs every morning to help him get large. Thankfully Gaston’s Tavern at Walt Disney World Resort put a little more effort into their menu. While you can’t go wrong with LeFou’s Brew, the Warm Cinnamon Rolls are easily the star of the show.

If you’ve been longing to recreate the beastly cinnamon rolls from Gaston’s Tavern, we have just the recipe for you. It was developed by Ashley Craft and is sure to satiate any hungry mob.

How to Make Gaston’s Tavern Cinnamon Rolls

  1. For dough: Melt the 1/2 cup of butter with the milk. Once the butter has melted, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Grab your mixer and combine 2 1/2 cups of flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix.
  3. Add water, eggs, and warm butter/milk mixture. Mix well.
  4. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time. When the dough starts to form a ball, it’s ready!
  5. Trade out your mixing blade for a dough hook and mix with the hook for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove dough from bowl, sprinkle flour in the bowl, and return the dough to the same bowl to rise for 10 minutes.
  7. For filling, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and softened butter in a bowl. Mix well.
  8. Roll out the dough into a long rectangle. You want it to be much longer than it is wide to achieve the giant size.
  9. Spread the filling evenly across the whole surface.
  10. Starting at a short end, roll the dough like a jellyroll.
  11. Make a cut in the very center of the long roll, and then two cuts about 6 inches from the center on either side.
  12. Place both the rolls, swirl down, in a greased 9×13 pan.
  13. Melt 1/4 cup butter and drizzle over your dough. Allow your rolls to rise for 30 minutes.
  14. Preheat your oven to 375 Degrees F. Bake for 20 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and bake another 10 minutes.
  15. For cream cheese frosting, in a saucepan, melt cream cheese and 1/4 cup butter.
  16. Add the powdered sugar and stir. Once incorporated, add the vanilla and salt. Put aside
  17. For butterscotch topping, in a saucepan, add the brown sugar, butter, and cream.
  18. Bring to a boil and maintain for 5 minutes stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
  19. Add the salt and vanilla. Put aside.
  20. Drizzle cream cheese frosting in one direction, then drizzle with butterscotch in the other direction.
