Sweet Rolls

The Pioneer Woman is known for her cinnamon rolls.  She started with the basic cinnamon rolls & then has modified the recipe to include versions with blueberries, chocolate & pumpkin.  I have made her lemon-blueberry cinnamon rolls in the past and they were very good.  I needed to bring a breakfast item to bible study a couple weeks ago & I wanted to make something that maybe isn’t so common in Germany, so I chose to make the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sweet Rolls.

The dough is the same for any variation of cinnamon/sweet rolls.  You heat up some milk, sugar & vegetable oil.  Then you add the yeast & tons of flour.

Mix it all up & let it sit for an hour or so.

Add another cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt.  Stir it all up & put it in the fridge to get it chilled, so it is easier to work with.

Ready to start rolling.  Spread out half the dough into a long rectangle.  Her recipe makes enough dough for two sets of cinnamon/sweet rolls.

This is the decadent part:  adding melted butter with vanilla to the rolled dough, sprinkling on a brown-white sugar mix & chocolate chips.

Spread a cream cheese frosting over the semi-cooled sweets rolls.

For the other half of the dough, I made a cinnamon sugar twist that Christian took to his work to share.
