Easy Cinnamon Cardamom Rolls With International Delight® Coffee Creamer

*This post was first published on December 6th of 2017. It has been updated before being republished today.

It was a cold winter morning here in Georgia (clearly this was many, many moons ago when winter mornings in Georgia were actually cold ~ y’all, it was 65+ degrees Fahrenheit here yesterday!) when I heard a knock on my front door.

I had had only one cup of coffee flavored with delicious International Delight® Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Spice and so vaguely recall answering it with my crusty eyes and wild hair to find my then new neighbor standing on my doorstep. Her face was ruddy from the cold and she held a steaming tray of freshly baked orange cinnamon rolls in her gloved hands.

To this day, I cannot remember if I thanked her or if I even invited her in at that moment (clearly, I shouldn’t be allowed to interact with anyone on only one cup of coffee!).

But, after my third cup had kicked in, I had to head over and thank her and that is when she shared with me that baking fresh cinnamon rolls were a holiday tradition she grew up with.

Now, having grown up mostly in Sri Lanka and Abu Dhabi, cinnamon rolls didn’t fall onto my radar until I moved to Atlanta to pursue college.

For the longest time I never really tried making them. And, reserved my enjoyment of them to when I visited a certain Swedish Furniture store here that stockpiles cinnamon rolls in their cafeteria or when I walked by a mall kiosk and found the smell intoxicating.

But, this year, my daughter suggested we at least try making cinnamon rolls for the holidays. And, so I did.

And, seeing she asked after I had had my third cup of coffee, I agreed to make two batches! And, (currently I’ve had way too much coffee hence all the ands) I used delightfully rich and creamy International Delight® Frosted Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer (that tastes like cookies & frosting) instead of milk in the dough, AND in the “icing” as well.

By the way, I tend to linger longer over my coffee when I use International Delight® Frosted Sugar Cookie in it – if y’all haven’t tried it yet…why not stir liquid holiday cheer into your coffee?

Yeast-Free Cinnamon Rolls Process

The first batch I made, I actually put my yeast-baking-jitters aside and ended up with some intoxicatingly aromatic cardamom cinnamon rolls.

But, I didn’t roll the dough out as much as I should have, and even though my daughter enjoyed them, they were just too “bready” for me.

Cinnamon Rolls With Yeast And International Delight® Coffee Creamer

So, as I didn’t have too much time on my hands, I immediately moved onto making a yeast-free, batch number 2. This way there was no need for proofing and all that rigmarole.

The yeast free cinnamon rolls seemed to be just a tad softer and flakier than the batch made with yeast so I decided to share them on here.

In addition to using International Delight® Frosted Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer in the dough, I also added just a tad bit of cinnamon and cardamom into it as well as sprinkling the dough with it and brown sugar and pecans.

I recently read an article in which they mentioned how cinnamon rolls were thought to have originated in Sweden and they used to be made with cardamom instead of cinnamon – so I figured I’d just add both of these aromatic spices into my version.

International Delight® Coffee Creamers
International Delight® Walmart

Prior to making these Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls, I stopped by Walmart to pick up a container of International Delight® Frosted Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer for the cinnamon rolls as well as a morning treat in my coffee mug.

And, I also picked up a container of the International Delight® Sugar-Free Pumpkin Pie Spice with it’s creamy swirl of seasonal spice flavors, for my mom. It just doesn’t feel like the holidays without a splash of seasonal flavor. So, make sure you head to Walmart and stock up and make that merriment last!

  1. You are talking my kind of language with these cinnamon rolls, Shashi! Cinnamon rolls have been a holiday tradition every since I can remember, and I love making the homemade version. I also love me some International Delight, so this is the perfect combination for me. The addition of cardamom here sounds absolutely perfect for the season, and I’m thinking I could go for a batch of these right about now. I’ll send my drone down to pick ’em up…but don’t worry, I’ll wait until you get 3 cups of coffee before the drone taps on your window! 🙂

  2. Having visitors before a good cup of coffee in the morning? I know this! When anyone tries to say something to me (even like “good morning”), I just get lost. But your neighbor was nice, though. And certainly, the rolls are delicious. Cardamom and cinnamon = WIN.

  3. When did you say you’re making these again? I’ll be sure to swing by – these look and sound amazing. We make cinnamon rolls for holidays (and random Sundays!), maybe I’ll give this recipe a shot this year! #client

  4. Hey! This iss kiknd of off topic but I need soome

    I’m not very techincal but I can figure thiungs out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
    Tank you

  5. What to use instead of the sugar cookie creamer as I cannot find it and to be honest it is hard to find any creamers at times!

    1. Hi Dottie, you can use milk (either regular milk or coconut/almond/oat milk) instead of the creamer in this recipe. You can add a tablespoon of sugar as well to keep it sweet. I have 2 other cinnamon roll recipes that do not have creamer in them that turned out delicious https://savoryspin.com/pumpkin-cinnamon-rolls/ and https://savoryspin.com/easy-carrot-cake-cinnamon-rolls/
      Thanks for your comment, would love to know your thoughts on these when you try.
