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
- melted butter
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, 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 (I use aluminum 9 inch cake pans) that have been brushed with melted butter. Let the rolls rise for about 30 minutes.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
