These insanely awesome Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls from last year? I was in love with these. Thought they were the best things ever, and that cinnamon rolls couldn’t get any better.
Then these happened:
Boy was I wrong. THESE are the best ones ever. Cookie Dough-stuffed Cinnamon Rolls. Yea buddy.
From How Sweet It Is, just like the other ones. Here’s the recipe!
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls
2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 package dry yeast (or 2 1/4 teaspoons)
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
sugarCookie Dough: 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/3 cup shortening 1/3 cup butter 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 cup flour 6 oz chocolate chips
Mix the milk, sugar and oil in a large pot. Scald the mixture, then let cool for one hour. When it has cooled (but is still slightly warm), sprinkle the yeast into the milk mixture and let it sit for a minute. Add four cups of flour and mix until a dough forms, then cover and let rise for at least one hour.
After an hour, add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour, baking soda and powder and mix. I use my hands to make sure the dough completely comes together. Flour your workspace and roll the dough with a rolling pin until it’s thin and somewhat rectangular, then brush with melted butter (as much as you want) and generously cover with cinnamon and sugar. Drops balls of your favorite cookie dough all over the cinnamon roll dough (we went pretty heavy on the cookie dough), then starting with the end away from you, roll the dough into a line towards you. Slice the rolls about 1 inch thick and lay in pans that have been brushed with melted butter. Let the rolls rise for about 30 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Make sure you do set it to 400 degrees…because apparently 10 o’clock at night is too late to trust myself to turn the oven to the right temperature….Oh good times.
But here’s the pictures! Let the temptation begin!
Look at that! Yummm!
Cut up and in the pan! Look at all the cookie dough.
All cooked! Smell them yet?
Iced, baked, and ready to be devoured! And they were!
Enjoy! And if you’re addicted now, don’t blame me. I’m warning you now, they are very addictively amazingly deliciously unhealthily yummy. Good luck keeping any diets 😉
