Oreo Sweet Rolls

June 3, 2012 § 16 Comments

It all started with the discovery of Oreo Spread.

This is pretty much how things went down:

  • I saw it.
  • I made it. (As you can from the picture above, I used Wegman’s-brand Double Stuf Oreos.  They taste the same.  I’m cheap.)
  • I tried to resist the urge to eat all of it.
  • I gave up and ate all of it anyway.
  • I made more.
  • And then I got a little crazy and the crazy idea to use it as a filling for cinnamon rolls.

I’m telling you, this Oreo Spread stuff is d-a-n-g-e-r-o-u-s!  But we’re all brave here, right?  When was the last time one of us food bloggers shied away from dessert?  I certainly can’t remember my last time! :-P

Here’s the rundown…

Slightly sweet pastry dough filled with ooey gooey Oreo Spread instead of that traditional brown sugar/cinnamon/butter stuff, baked until soft, glazed and topped with crushed Oreos (or Wegman’s Oreos in my case) while still warm.

Droooooooooooool.

I toyed with the idea of calling them Oreo Dessert Rolls, but then I had one for breakfast with a glass of iced coffee on the side.  Highly recommended.  I promise, if it wasn’t 10AM I probably would have had three more. ;-)

First brownies and now these.  It’s no wonder I’m Oreo obsessed!

Care to join the obsession?

Oreo Sweet Rolls

Adapted from my Roasted Banana & Nutella Swirl Rolls

“Slightly sweet pastry dough filled with a ooey gooey spread made of crushed Oreos, baked, and topped with icing and more crushed Oreos.  Eat them for breakfast, dessert, or both – I won’t judge.  I mean, just look at that gooey molten Oreo filling!  Irresistable.”

Ingredients:

For rolls:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for your prep surface
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup Oreo Spread
  • 4 Oreo cookies, roughly chopped for topping

For icing:

  •  4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease a medium-sized pie or cake pan and set aside.
  2. Place all dry ingredients in a medium bowl and wisk to combine.  In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, 3 tablespoons of the butter, egg, and vanilla.  Add to the bowl with the dry ingredients and knead until well-combined.
  3. Flour your prep surface and roll dough roughly into a 15×18 inch rectangle.  Spread dough with remaining tablespoon of butter and Oreo Spread.  Roll up dough and cut into 8 rolls.
  4. Place rolls into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.  While the rolls are baking prepare icing by mixing the remaining butter, 2 tablespoons of milk, and the powdered sugar.  Top finished rolls with icing and remaining crushed Oreos and enjoy!

Yield:  8 rolls

The Good, the Bad, and the Yummy

May 11, 2012 § 11 Comments

Hello Bloggies!  Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind day, hence the lack of posting.  It was a mix of good and bad…and yummy!  Let me tell you how things went down.

First block United States History class.  We were debating different groups’ views on Andrew Jackson’s presidency.  My group won. Good. :-)

We finished reading A Raisin in the Sun in English class and got to begin watching the movie. Good. :-)

I had to take the Algebra test that I mentioned a few days ago.  I could only answer 8 out of 12 questions on it. Bad. :-(

It was a beautiful day so I went for a run when I got home from school. Good. :-)

I had a crapload of homework. Bad. :-(

After the aforementioned crapload of homework was completed, I baked a cake. Good. :-)

It wasn’t just any cake, though.  I baked a Cinnamon Roll Cake and drizzled it with some cream cheese frosting. Yummy! :-D

How was your day yesterday? Good? Bad?

How was your day today? Good? Bad?

Either way, I know what you should do to bring it to the next level. Yes, the Level of Yummy.

Bake this cake.

Seriously, make yourself some Cinnamon Roll Cake. It’s soft, and sweet, and gooey, and cinnamon-y, and flat-out delicious. 

Bake it in celebration of the weekend.  Bake it for your Mom.

Just bake it. 

You won’t regret it! :-D

Roasted Banana & Nutella Swirl Rolls

I’m not exactly a “football person.”

I just don’t get it.

No, I’m not one of those people who don’t even know what a touchdown is.  I know that!  Although today, when asked which football team I was rooting for in the SuperBowl, I responded with “Eh…I don’t really care.  Whoever scores the most homeruns!”  I was kidding, of course, because I’m just funny like that. ;-)

Where was I again? Oh yeah, me and football. 

This Sunday, while everyone else is eating buffalo wings, watching the big game, and screaming like crazy people, I will be celebrating the other major event going on that day.

World Nutella Day! 

Now that’s more like it.  Eating buffalo wings, pretending to watch the big game, laughing like a crazy person during the commercials, and then topping it all off with chocolate-y Roasted Banana & Nutella Swirl Roll and a spoonful of Nutella.

Now who’s with me?! :-D

Roasted Banana & Nutella Swirl Rolls

Inspired by Just Buns’ Nutella Swirly Bun

“Rich, chocolate-y Nutella enveloped in pastry dough spiked with roasted bananas. They’re like cinnamon rolls, but wayyyy better! Plus they’re made with baking powder, not yeast so you can whip them up in less than 30 minutes!”

Ingredients:

  • 2 small bananas (or 1 ½ larger ones), peeled and sliced
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for your prep surface
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup + 2 tablespoons milk (I used 1%.)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup Nutella
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease a medium-sized pie or cake pan and set aside.
  2. Place sliced banana slices in a small ramekin, place ramekin in the oven, and allow to roast for 10 minutes.  You will be able to smell the bananas when they are done, mash.
  3. Place all dry ingredients in a medium bowl and wisk to combine.  In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, 3 tablespoons of the butter, and the mashed banana.  Add to the bowl with the dry ingredients and knead until well-combined.
  4. Flour your prep surface and roll dough roughly into a 15×18 inch rectangle.  Spread dough with a mixture of 3 tablespoons melted butter and the Nutella.  Roll up dough and cut into 8 rolls. 
  5. Place rolls into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.  While the rolls are baking prepare icing by mixing the remaining butter, 2 tablespoons of milk, and the powdered sugar.  Top finished rolls with icing and enjoy!

Yield:  8 rolls
