You can easily make a full batch of each, cookie dough stuffed, or chocolate chip stuffed. I made a full batch of cinnamon rolls and divided the fillings between each half. Does that make sense? If you need more clarification, I know the recipe is a little confusing, please let me know so I can help make it more clear!
For the cinnamon rolls:
2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 packet yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)
4-1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 stick margarine
1 batch ready to eat cookie dough
2 cups chocolate chips
For the icing:
Cookie Dough Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup cookie dough
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Mix the milk, oil, and sugar in a large pot. Scald milk mixture and then let it cool to room temperature.
2. Sprinkle yeast over milk mixture and let it sit for a couple minutes.
3. Stir in 4 cups of flour to form a sticky dough. Cover pan and let the dough rise for 1 hour.
4. After dough has risen, stir in remaining 1/2 cup of flour, baking powder, and baking soda until well combined.
5. Divide dough in half. On a flour covered workplace (I use my counter), roll the dough out until it's about 1/8" thick and in a rectangular shape about 18 inches long and 12 inches wide.
6. Melt margarine in a glass measuring cup (or a small bowl). Pour half of the melted margarine over the dough. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon (the amount is up to you, I used less cinnamon so the other flavors would really shine through). Now top with either spoonfuls of cookie dough or chocolate chips.
7. Roll dough in a line toward you. Cut into 3/4 inch slices. (I use dental floss to cut my cinnamon rolls, but a sharp knife works well too.) Place in a greased pan.
8. Repeat this process with the other half of the dough.
9. Let the cinnamon rolls rise for 30 minutes. Then bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
10. While rolls are in the oven, mix together ingredients for icing. If you're making cookie dough icing, melt the cookie dough in the microwave for about 30 seconds before blending with the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. If you're using the chocolate, just melt it in the microwave and pour over rolls.
11. Let the rolls cool for about 5 minutes before icing.
