Freezing cinnamon buns?

If I make dough for cinnamon rolls, fill it, shape it and cut it, can I freeze them at that point?

Sure. But then you should let it proof first before baking it.

I made and sold cinnamon buns in one of my restaurants for 13 years..I used to bake them, then let them cool for an hour, then cut, wrap and freeze..to serve them I would put them in the microwave for about 20 seconds, then take them out and unwrap them, smear icing on them and back in the microwave for another 25-30 seconds..depends on how big they are, so you may have to tweak the microwave times..they came back beautifully and customers enjoyed them for years

What RL said. I've frozen them after shaping. They don't seem to rise quite as well as fresh made, but certainly not enough to really make a difference. A local restaurant that makes nearly plate sized ones freezes them after baking then treats them like RL wrote. They serve them with icing and/or caramel dauce.
