Cookies and cream rolls transform a simple yeasted bread dough into a magical and delicious treat! Cinnamon rolls are my absolute weakness. From carrot cake cinnamon rolls to confetti cinnamon rolls to the my dad’s favorite classic cinnamon rolls, it’s hard to resist any variation of sweet yeast rolls.

Cookies and Cream Oreo Rolls As a fan of cookies and cream ice cream, I thought, why not transfer those flavors into rolls! Just like traditional cinnamon rolls, these cookies and cream rolls are soft, fluffy, and oh so tasty. And, the vanilla cream cheese frosting is glorious. I suggest making a double batch of frosting. You’ll want to spread a giant dollop on the rolls. How to assemble cookie and cream bread rolls: Prepare the yeast dough. Have filling components (softened butter that has mayo-like consistency, chopped Oreos, and granulated sugar) ready!Roll dough into a 20 x 14-inch rectangle. Spread softened butter all over the dough. Sprinkle on sugar and chopped cookies on top. Gently press cookies into the dough to make sure they stick.Starting at the long side, roll dough into a log. Slice into 12 equal parts. You can eyeball it, but I highly suggest using a ruler so you truly have equal sizes. Otherwise, people will fight for the biggest piece!Place rolls on a greased 9×13-inch baking pan (quarter sheet pan size). Cover and let rolls rest for about 35 minutes to rise. Made for Oreo Cookie Fans I’ve included Oreo cookies in all three components of these rolls: dough, filling, and topping. Just like the way I incorporated confetti sprinkles in my funfetti cinnamon rolls, I kneaded in chopped Oreo cookies into this dough. My favorite part about making any kind of roll is slicing into the log. It’s like the way I love photos of decorated pies before they get baked. Perhaps I like the anticipation of what’s to come. These cookies and cream rolls are rich, decadent and not for the faint of heart. It’s not meant for dieters, healthy eating advocates, or those training for marathons. It’s a wonderful, extraordinary, once in a blue moon kind of treat that puts a giant smile on your face, makes your stomach happy, and then puts you into a sugar induced nap. Storage, Leftovers, and Reheating Options Baked rolls may be left covered at room temperature for 24 hours. Once frosted, rolls can be left out for 10-12 hours. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave for 20-30 second intervals with a cup of water. The water will prevent the bread from turning gummy. Alternatively, reheat in a toaster over. For longer storage, cut and separate the rolls into individual portions. Wrap portions tightly in plastic wrap. Then, place in a resealable freezer bag. Store in the freezer for up to 2 months.
