For the dough:

  • 3 cups of all-purpose flour + extra for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of active dry yeast
  • 3 eggs (2 eggs beaten and 1 for egg wash)
  • 2/3 cup of milk (lukewarm)
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract

For the filling:

  • 1/3 cup of unsalted butter (softened)
  • 2/3 cup of raw sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips

For the glazing:

  • 1/2 cup of cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 and 1/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 and 1/4 cup of heavy cream or milk
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract




Step 1:

For the dough. Combine all-purpose flour, salt, white sugar, and active dry yeast in a large mixing bowl. Set it aside. Pour milk into the beaten eggs, unsalted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture gradually and mix after every pour. Transfer it to your work surface and knead the dough for about 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer the dough to a bowl and let it rise for about 1.5 hours until it doubles in size.

Step 2:

Prepare the cinnamon filling. In a small bowl, combine unsalted butter, raw sugar, and ground cinnamon. Mix until well combined.

Step 3:

Once the dough doubles in size, punch the air out and transfer to a lightly floured work area. Roll the dough into a 20 by 14 inches rectangle.

Step 4:

Spread the cinnamon filling into the dough evenly then cut into 6 long strips. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on the 4 middle strips. Starting from the outside, stack three strips on top of each other so the plain one remains on top. Do the same for the other side. Once done, cut the stacks into 4 slices.
