  1. Prepare the Dough:

    • Sprinkle chopped cookies over the butter mixture.
    • Roll the dough tightly from one end to the other and slice into equal pieces.
    • Place the slices on a greased baking tray, slightly apart to allow for expansion.
  4. Bake:
    • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Bake the rolls for about 25 minutes, or until they turn golden brown and the dough is fully cooked.
  5. Prepare the Drizzle:
    • Mix powdered sugar replacement, powdered sugar, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth.
    • Drizzle over the warm cinnamon rolls.
  6. Add Toppings:
    • Sprinkle additional crushed cookies on top of the drizzled rolls for extra crunch and flavor.
