Ingredients and Substitutions

For the Rolls

  • Milk – Full fat is always best for decadent rolls, but whatever you have on hand will work.
  • Butter – Unsalted. If using salted butter, eliminate the added salt in the dough.
  • All-Purpose Flour – No sifting is required, but note that you’ll divide the flour into two parts in this recipe.
  • White Granulated Sugar – For sweetening the dough.
  • Salt – To balance all the sweetness of these rolls.
  • Active Quick Rise Yeast – Need tips baking with yeast? Don’t skip my guide! It’s full of can’t-miss tips and tricks!

For the Filling

  • Butter – Unsalted, melted.
  • Cookie Butter – We like the Lotus brand Biscoff, but you can use whatever you’d like!
  • Brown Sugar – Packed. You can use light or dark brown sugar here.

Heavy Cream – This is the secret of my famous cinnamon rolls. It’s actually used to drench the rolls before baking, not technically as part of the filling.

Tips

  • A stand mixer is the easiest way to make this dough, but you can also knead by hand. Kneading by hand takes approximately 10-12 minutes and in a mixer, you’ll need about eight minutes.
  • If you want your icing to be thinner, just add a little more cream.
  • This recipe makes 10 larger rolls, so they need approximately 25 minutes for the dough to rise in warmed oven. Smaller rolls won’t need quite as much time to rise, and they’ll need less time to bake, as well!

Make Ahead (Refrigeration Tips)

  1. These cookie butter cinnamon rolls are great to make ahead. Make them a day before serving, (don’t add cream into the baking dish yet). Cover the rolls tightly (unbaked) and refrigerate overnight.
  2. The next morning when you’re ready to bake, simply pour the cream over them and bake in your pre-heated oven, following the steps as directed in the printable recipe card.
  3. To reheat them after they’ve been baked and iced, place a roll individually in the microwave for 20 seconds, or in your baking dish in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for five minutes.

Make Ahead (Freezer Tips)

  1. Freeze these cookie butter cinnamon rolls after making (but prior to baking). Wrapped tightly, these can be stored in the freezer for up to two weeks. If stored for longer, some of your yeast could die off, which results in less fluffy rolls
  2. To make your rolls ahead and freeze them before baking, just take them out of the freezer the night before you want to enjoy them.
  3. Allow them thaw overnight in the refrigerator. The next morning, set the pan out to allow them to rise (until they’ve basically doubled in volume), then bake as directed in the recipe card.

How to Store

  • Room Temperature – Store these cookie butter cinnamon rolls at room temperature in an airtight container up to two days.
  • Refrigerate – Store in the fridge in an airtight container up to 4-5 days.
  • Freeze – You can freeze cinnamon rolls (after baking), by storing in an airtight container covered in plastic wrap. This helps to prevent freezer odor, and they can be safely stored for up to three months.

Dietary Considerations

  • Vegetarian
  • Nut Free – Ensure that your cookie butter is nut free!
  • For gluten free rolls, use a 1 to 1 gluten free flour in this recipe.
