Instructions

  1. Prepare the Dough:
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, yeast, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the warm milk, melted butter, and egg.
  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until a dough forms.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-1.5 hours, or until doubled in size.

  • Roll out the risen dough into a large rectangle (about 14×9 inches).
  • Spread the softened butter evenly over the dough.
  • Sprinkle the Oreo mixture over the buttered dough.
  1. Roll and Cut the Dough:
  • Starting from the long edge, tightly roll up the dough into a log.
  • Cut the log into 12 equal slices.
  • Place the slices in a greased 9×13 inch baking pan.
  1. Second Rise:
  • Cover the pan with a damp cloth and let the rolls rise for another 30 minutes.
  1. Bake:
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  1. Prepare the Frosting:
  • In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until creamy.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, until the frosting reaches your desired consistency.
