Cinnamon Roll Dippers (No Yeast)

Cinnamon Roll Dippers (No Yeast) – An inside-out version of that cinnamon roll deliciousness you love without the fuss!!!

Cinnamon Roll Dippers (No Yeast)

I’ve been holding out on you. I made these bad boys a month a go. . . I’m sorry! I don’t know why but I’ve been “saving” them. For what I’m not sure. I just kept thinking oh, I need a special occasion to share these. And a month has come and gone and I still have not shared them! So I decided I would create a special occasion. Happy Cinnamon Roll Dipper Wednesday!

Cinnamon Roll Dippers (No Yeast)

Cinnamon rolls are one of my absolute favorite breakfast foods. Probably because they taste way more like dessert than breakfast. Cinnamon, sugar, frosting… ummmm, yeah that’s definitely fitting for the most important meal of the day! I made these on a weekend morning for the husband and myself and I was floored with how they turned out. I mean, I imagined them in the first place so naturally I expected to like them but… these were AMAZING.

It’s genius really. An inside-out cinnamon roll which requires no yeast at all, can be made ahead and ready in 15 minutes the morning of, and you dipย them in the glaze so you never have that oh shoot, I should have doubled the frosting recipe feeling in the pit of your stomach that inevitably comes with the first bite of every traditional cinnamon roll.

Cinnamon Roll Dippers (No Yeast)

I may or may not have a cinnamon roll obsession. It started with those harmless little 1 Hour No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls I made a few months back. Then I got real creative with the Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake (which, by the way is my most popular recipe!). And then a couple of weeks ago I died and went to heaven with these Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. ย But today, it’s official. We’ve revolutionized the cinnamon roll. Which is saying something since the cinnamon roll is pretty much the best breakfast culinary invention ever. Easy, insanely delicious, and dippable. For all of you fellow double-dip offenders, you know exactly what I mean when I say, it’s ten times better if it’s dippable. These are going to make a reappearance in my kitchen very regularly, I don’t know how we ever lived without them!

An inside-out version of that cinnamon roll deliciousness you love without the fuss! You can dip them right in the glaze so you can get loads of cream cheesy frosting goodness on every single bite!
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 3-4
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar (divided)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter, softened +1 tablespoon (divided)
  • 3-6 tablespoons ice cold water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
for the glaze dip
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • milk
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Combine flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a medium bowl and whisk to combine. Cut in ½ cup butter with pastry cutter or two forks until crumbly. Add 3 tablespoons ice cold water and mix to combine. Add more water 1 tablespoon at a time as needed until mixture comes together. Flatten dough into a round disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and chill 15 minutes or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 and grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. When dough has chilled, unwrap it and use a pizza cutter to cut into 1-1/2 inch strips. Place wtrips on prepared baking sheet. Use a rubber spatula to spread 1 tablespoon butter over the tops of the strips. Combine cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar in a small bowl and sprinkle mixture on top of buttered strips. Bake uncovered 12-14 minutes, until lightly browned.
  4. Prepare the glaze dip by combining softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl. Use a hand mixer to mix well. Add milk 1 teaspoon at a time until a smooth consistency is reached. In a small sauce pan combine brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon and whisk until butter melts and mixture is smooth. Drizzle cinnamon mixture into prepared glaze dip. Serve dippers warm or at room temp. Enjoy!
*These can be made ahead by making the dough and glaze up to two days beforehand and chilling until ready to eat. When ready, simply bake the sticks as the directions suggest (may need to increase time by 1-2 minutes) and warm the glaze in a microwave safe bowl before serving.

Wow – genius. And I am a huge dipper. As in, I like a little food with my dip. Pinned

    Exactly. I mean, Isn’t food just a vehicle for dip? Thanks Averie!

You have been holding out on us – I love treats like this . . . mmm . . .

Oh my gosh. These look absolutely delicious and look like the cinnastix I adore from Dominos. I can’t wait to try them out! Pinning these and following you now!


These would be so addicting!!

These look incredible and such a creative idea! Who wouldn’t love cinnamon sugar treats that you can dip – yum!

We made these this morning…delicious! I did tweak the recipe a bit: added a little baking powder, cut the sugar in the glaze down to 1 cup and added a bit more cream cheese because hubby is a cream cheese fan :), and I melted the butter to spread on top, I think it would have been much harder to spread it (we keep our butter in the fridge). I doubled the recipe because I wasn’t sure if it would be enough but it certainly was! There was more than enough with the first batch because they were so filling…this can easily feed 3 adults. We will be enjoying the left overs later! Thanks for the recipe!

I have been thinking about these lovely little gems since I first came across them a week ago and will finally be trying them tomorrow!

I also posted a link to the recipe and your blog on my blog =)

wow! very delicious, made a trial batch this morning, will definitely make them Christmas morning (make the dough the night before). have you ever made something for the first time on a big holiday and its a flop? been there, done that with fried cheese balls. your cinnamon dippers remind me of pie pastry crust, so flaky, wonder if you can use this recipe for pie crust? i will try it someday and let you know:) love your website, its beautiful, recipes are great, the chicken is crocking now for the chicken in cream cheese sauce over fettucine.

I made these for breakfast today they are amazing!!! All of the kids couldn’t believe how yummy they were. I think we are going to be making these the next time we make pizza!!! Thank you for an awesome recipe!

Made this recipe for breakfast today because family was visiting. It was a HUGE hit and the portions were just right to serve 4 of us. We used the lower fat cream cheese (neufchatel) in the dip with good results and will try half whole wheat flour in the dippers next time. Thanks!

    I’m so glad you loved these Kristine! This is one of our all-time favorite breakfast recipes! Definitely let me know how they turn out with the whole wheat flour! Thanks for taking a minute to let me know how much you enjoyed them! ๐Ÿ™‚

How thick do I have to roll them out? Just made these, they taste yum but mine didn’t turn out as thick and soft looking as yours.

    Hi Shehana! I rolled mine out to about 1/2 inch thickness. I hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

I made these this morning and they didn’t have a lot of taste….better, thanks to the glaze…..but they were really hard coming out of the oven and we werent able to dip them because they crumbled…!

    Hi Lisa! Did you make sure to wrap the dough when chilling it? If not tightly wrapped it will dry out. Also, if they are overcooked they may dry out and crumble as well. When you are preparing the dough, go ahead and add a few teaspoons of water if the dough isn’t coming together like it should be. Once brushed with butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar they should be very tasty – especially with the glaze!

I tried these and they were great! Tasted and looked a little harder + thicker than in the. pictures. But once I put the glaze on it tasted great. I would have liked mine to turn out more soft and gooey though. Reminds me of pie crust.

I just prepared the cinnamon roll dippers!! The flavor was amazing but they had a crust that I didn’t like that much. Probably I overcooked them but when I checked them at 12-14min they were very pale. Are they supposed to be like this or did I do something wrong?

Making the these for for he first time time but also newish to baking. Do I need to flour the surface before rolling out and wrapping in plastic wrap? I s extremely sticky and since you didn’t say whether to or not I wanted to ask.

Thanks for your help.

Will try!!! Will try them tonight

I seriously love your website!! I always get so excited about finding new good food blogs… Yours is one of the best!! And these dippers are amazing!!

    Awe thank you Amanda! I’m up very late tonight working on getting a new post up and your comment just made my night! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

The recipe looks amazing,, but I can not find in the recipe or comments, whether you use Self Rising or plain flour. It calls for salt, but no baking powder, so I am not sure. Can you help me with this?

    Hi Linda, It’s regular all purpose flour ๐Ÿ™‚

hi, how much water did you add? mine is taking longer to rise in fridge and still won’t stick together when i pick it up

These loom wonderful, but can I omit the salt? I have to severely limit my sodium intake.

    Yep, you could take out the salt for these if you need to! ๐Ÿ™‚
