Oreo Cinnamon Rolls

| |

Want something decadent?  Have some time to spare?  These cinnamon roll cupcakes are definitely not for someone in a hurry but you will be rewarded with the scent of homemade cinnamon rolls in the oven and the thought of the cream cheese Oreo filling inside those cinnamon rolls.  Oh yes, that is correct.  Blahnik Baker took a cinnamon roll recipe and added Oreos and cream cheese.   These may be illegal in some states.

Oreo Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 12 rolls


Oreo Dough
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 2½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 4½ cups flour (I used All Purpose, but bread flour is a great choice)
  • 1 cup crushed Oreo cookies
Oreo Cheesecake Filling
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup crushed Oreo cookies
Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • ¼ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup crushed Oreo cookies
For the Dough
  1. Pour warm milk in a large bowl (or bowl of your stand mixer). Sprinkle with yeast, sugar, and salt. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes until the yeast is slightly frothy. Add the eggs one at a time and stir to completely combine after each one. Pour in the butter and stir.
  2. Add the flour 1 cup at a time, stirring to combine. If you’re using a stand mixer, use the dough attachment and knead for five minutes, until the dough is pulling away from the bowl and leaving the bowl clean looking. If you’re mixing by hand, knead for 10 minutes until the dough is smooth and not sticky. Add the Oreos during the last minute or so of kneading.
  3. Transfer dough to a greased bowl, cover with a clean cloth, and place it somewhere warm to rise until double in size, about an hour. Meanwhile, make the filling and frosting.
For the Filling
  1. Beat cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add sugar and egg, mixing well. Fold in Oreos. Set aside until ready to assemble the rolls.
For the Frosting
  1. Beat cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and salt. Whisk in powdered sugar, one cup at a time. Fold in Oreos. Set aside until ready to assemble the rolls.
To Assemble
  1. Once the dough has risen, roll into a large rectangle, 16 x 20 inches). Spread the cheesecake filling evenly across the rectangle, leaving one-inch borders all the way around. Roll the dough lengthwise, forming a long log.
  2. Use plain dental floss to evenly cut the log into 12 equal parts. Place rolls in a greased 9 x 13 baking dish and let it rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees while the rolls are rising. Bake the rolls for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Let rolls cool slightly, then frost and enjoy.
