It has been a while since I’ve posted a copycat recipe here. I know there was a wave of copycat recipes we were riding there a little while ago but with the holiday season my mind has wandered to the flavors of the season. Pumpkin has been a huge flavor of the month and with Halloween around the corner my mind has been focused on desserts. This dessert is a nice departure from all the pumpkin and candy.

This recipe also benefits from using a similar dough to the Pizzeria Garlic Knots I recently posted. The differences are the oil used in the dough (olive oil would be too strong a flavor for this recipe) and way it is baked. With the pizza knots we cut the dough into strips and make them into knots, but here we leave it in one piece. You could, if you weren’t looking to mimic the Domino’s recipe actually make these into knots too, they would still be absolutely delicious that way!

The original Cinnastix are basically a half a pizza dough brushed with a butter substitute, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, then baked. This recipe makes a full tray full of slices and is made with all natural ingredients and actual butter. Something else to consider is these won’t even cost you a dollar. Okay, okay maybe for the whole batch *which is twice what you would get at Dominos* this recipe may cost a dollar. That is less than you would tip your delivery guy (at least I hope it is less!).

MY LATEST VIDEOS

The great thing about this dough, that I mentioned last week too, is that you don’t have to take the extra time to let it rise. If you have a bit of extra time to let it sit it will be slightly chewier and more flavorful, but the beauty of this dough is that it doesn’t need the extra time. We also add the cinnamon sugar in two parts to the dough, half before baking and half after. This makes for a nice crunch on the dough where the sugar caramelized in the oven and has a soft coating of fresh cinnamon sugar for after that will leave a nice cinnamon sugar lipstick on you with each bite!

  1. Let me tell you what I love about this recipe! My mother in law orders Cinnastix from Domino’s pretty frequently and she ices each piece, but I am not really an icing gal. I would much rather have them this way where I can choose how much or how little icing I want with them. Mmm, I bet your kitchen smells great when these come out of the oven.

    1. Yup, my husband is the same way. It pains me to spend 6 bucks on them when it takes no time at all and mine taste better ;). Plus I save like 5 of the 6 dollars, haha.

    1. Me too! Looking at posts after I write them makes me immediately hungry for the food again! I need to start writing them and finish them while I still have leftovers, haha.

  2. We can’t order pizza without getting some of these. They are so hot and yummy and make the perfect sweet dessert after pizza 🙂 I would never have thought of making them, myself… Now I can

    1. I know, sometimes when we would order pizza and not these, I would taste these as I was finishing my pizza, only to let my stomach down with no cinnastix, haha.

  3. How long do you let the dough rest/rise before rolling out into a rectangle? I imagine that you do let it rise before baking, correct?

    1. Not very long at all, 15-20 minutes? I use the no rise dough so it isn’t too long of a process. If you want to give it more rising time it will only be better, sometimes I let it rise for 30-40 mins if I am working on other parts of the meal. But really, it’ll be pretty delicious if you just make it immediately.

  4. I’m so glad I found this recipe. I live in the uk & ordered cinnastix (new over here) omg I’m addicted to them!. Can’t wait to give this recipe a try!.

  5. I just wanted to ask about the powdered sugar? It says 4 cups and i have a feeling that its incorrect since in my shops they only sell packets of powdered sugar that wont even be able to fill up 2 cups. maybe you meant 1/4 cup?

  6. Icing needs a lot of work. Followed the recipe exactly and this is why I only have it a 3 star. Any tips? Icing gets hard after adding the correct amount of milk and ends up tasting like cardboard.

    1. The icing will harden up after sitting for a bit (Domino’s does the same) so if you warm it up a little, it should soften back up.
