Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls Recipe With Heavy Cream: The TikTok Cinnamon Roll Hack by Donna John

TikTok is just full of great recipes and fun cooking and baking hacks. This cinnamon roll hack went viral, and for good reason. The cinnamon rolls come out ooey, gooey, moist and absolutely scrumptious.

The heavy cream soaks into the cinnamon rolls as they bake, and the brown sugar cinnamon butter melts into the rolls from the top. These rolls are perfect for breakfast, brunch or even dessert. Why not treat yourself and your family?

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grand Cinnamon Rolls (5 rolls)
  • heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

Here's how to make it:

  1. Separate the cinnamon rolls and put them into a square baking dish. Pour heavy cream over the rolls (eyeball this until it just covers the bottom of the pan).
  2. Stir together the melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Pour the mixture over the cinnamon rolls.
  3. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 30 minutes. (You can remove the foil for a couple minutes at the end for browner rolls.)
  4. Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven and allow to cool, then frost with the cream cheese frosting.
