I tried out this recipe tonight on my hubby. He agrees that it is a bang-on copycat for Domino's CinnaStix! I used my favorite recipe for homemade pizza dough, and it made quite a large batch, I estimate one recipe of this is equal to 3 or 4 orders of CinnaStix from Domino's.... The icing recipe seemed large, but it's the right amount for this number of cinnastix. Thanks for the great recipe!
Having worked at Domino's there are some things fundamentally wrong with this recipe. At the shop, we take a regular ball of dough, pull it to a roughly square shape. Cut it in half. Use a perforating roller (restaurant supply stores or online) and cut into 8 sticks. Squirt liberally with butter-flavored oil. (OK - you can use the real stuff if you want, but Smart N Final sells a product almost exactly what Domino's does.) The perforations give you that thick, soft, doughy breadsticks. Bake before sprinkling with cinnamon sugar. (Could you imagine cleaning pans with carmelized sugar?! At a fast-food joint? I think not!)
Awesome! These are much better than the Domino's version. Had five boys in the house and am surprised I even got to try one, they were gone that fast. Used Beth's Pizza Crust which I mixed in the KitchenAid. Even with making the dough, prep was really quick. Used 2 cups powdered sugar and enough extra milk to make icing which I drizzled on the sticks. Icing was awesome. Thanks for sharing the recipe! A definite repeat at my house.
Superb i have tried this. Thankyou for the recipe
Yumm... This was so good I almost ate the entire batch in one sitting... by myself... I was feeling a bit lazy & did not want to use up all my powder sugar... so I did not make the frosting... but even without the dipping frosting, these were super delicious and ridiculously easy... (literally one of the easiest & tastiest recipes I've made) Will definitely make this again...and again... Just a note - on my first batch (I made two batches) I only used maybe about half of the sugar/cinnamon mixture because I thought it seemed like too much, but once I took them out of the oven, I realized I should have added more... I ended up adding more of the cinnamon/sugar mix after I took them out of the oven & it worked out fine -- so if you aren't sure about how much sugar you want to add, adding more later (while everything is still hot) seems to work just fine... (In the end I still only used about 3/4 of the sugar mix) Also... I used tinfoil to line my cookie sheet so this recipe made zero mess & then I used the tinfoil to wrap up & store the second batch (the first batch mysteriously disappeared...)
This was a great recipe but did anybody notice it is 2482 CALORIES!!!!!!! Besides that it is a very good recipe it is easy enough that I can make it a 13 year old.
Good but way too sweet. Half the icing would definitely be sufficient.
I made this recipe last night and it was better than Dominos. I was so sick of paying so much money when I need my cinna sticks fix. I used Beth's Pizza Crust recipe which was super simple, the sticks were perfect.
My only problem was there is not enough icing for the amount of Cinna Sticks. I like to dip every bite in the icing. We were only able to eat half of the sticks last night, so the icing was enough for that, I just made a new back of icing for the left overs we ate tonight, so it worked out well.
Awesome! I melted all of the butter and baked them for about 14 minutes. As soon as they came out I sprinkled them with most of the cinnamon sugar mixture. The only thing I changed was that I used only about 2 cups of powdered sugar instead of about 3.5. Still used the same amount of vanilla and milk and butter and it tastes just like the Domino's version of the icing!
I will most def be making this again!
I make personal pan pizzas with Grands Homestyle biscuits. There are only five of us and the leftover pizza doesn't reheat so well. Now that my husband and I are on a low carb diet we have even more biscuits left over so I thought of our favorite dessert and googled the recipe which led me to you. My girls were waiting by the oven, counting down with the timer for these little treats to come out. Thank you so much for posting this delicious recipe!
