Little did I know when I was dreaming about these, that there were already similar recipes. 🤷♀️(Does it seem right to you that I think about making desserts when I’m running?) Well, it was a good idea, after all, someone just beat me to it. 😝My recipe using a shortcut so there’s no waiting around for yeast to rise.
OREO CINNAMON ROLLS
Who doesn’t love Oreos?
This tender dough is smothered with butter, cinnamon, and crushed Oreo cookies. It’s rolled up and baked to golden brown with a soft swirled center.
Make a quick frosting with heavy cream and powdered sugar and drizzle it abundantly over the sweet rolls.
- Dough – I used a premade pizza dough for the dough. It’s ready when you are with no wait time. You can make this with any kind of pizza dough. I’ve used thick crust, thin crust, and regular. They all turn out great. However, I wanted to really showcase the Oreos in this recipe, so I chose the thin crust. Furthermore, you can make traditional Cinnamon Roll dough or use my one-hour cinnamon roll dough.
- Filling – I chose to include a classic cinnamon roll filling as well as the Oreos for more flavor. The filling has butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and Oreos.
- Frosting – You can leave these rolls plain or top with a basic glaze, cream cheese glaze, or chocolate glaze. I mixed powdered sugar and heavy whipping cream for the glaze. I used 2 cups of sifted powdered sugar and two to three tablespoons of heavy whipping cream. Sifting the powdered sugar is necessary, otherwise, you’ll have lumps that are impossible to whisk out. I much prefer heavy whipping cream over whole milk for a glaze. It’s creamier and, frankly, tastes better in my opinion. However, if you don’t have heavy whipping cream use whole milk and add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
HOW TO MAKE OREO CINNAMON ROLLS
- Preheat your oven.
- Next, open the pizza dough and stretch it into a large rectangle on a sheet pan. Allow it to come to room temperature.
- Meanwhile, melt the butter.
- Combine the sugars and cinnamon.
- Crush the Oreos. You can crush as fine or crush as you want.
- Brush the dough with butter and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top.
- Spread Oreo cookies over top, roll the dough into a log.
- Carefully slice the rolls into nine equal pieces and place them on your sheet pan.
- Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden on top.
- Let the rolls cool a few minutes in the pan.
- While cooling, make the glaze and drizzle the glaze over the tops.
- Serve warm.
HOW TO STORE OREO CINNAMON ROLLS
- Keep rolls in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They’ll remain fresh for 3 days.
- Also, you can freeze baked cinnamon rolls. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer ziptop bag. Remove as much air as you can from the bag. They’ll thaw on the counter in a couple of hours. You can warm them in the oven covered with foil if you prefer.
