Delight in the Holiday season with this Gingerbread Roll with Sugar Cookie Buttercream. A delicious twist on a traditional treat that the whole family will enjoy.

Gingerbread Roll

The Holidays have always been a time of joy for our family. Growing up every Holiday we would get together with family, we would travel to them, they would travel to us, but no matter what we were always together to celebrate and enjoy each others company.

Gingerbread Roll

Making all the cookies, pies, cakes and treats that Christmas time has to offer was my most favorite pastime. Strapping on my little apron to help my mom, aunts and grandma bake up a storm, making sure that we had plenty to go around. My dad coming in sneaking cookie dough from the bowl and my mom shooing him away. Bringing grandpa the freshly baked cookies that I was so proud of having helped make.

Sadly those family members have moved away, or we have lost a few of them, but the tradition continues now that I’m all grown up and have a family of my own. With 4 kids, there will never be a holiday where I don’t include them in on baking with mom and the tradition I once enjoyed.

One of my most favorite flavors for this time of year is gingerbread. So obviously I NEEDED some in my life. And what is Christmas without a cake roll? Hello….may I introduce you to the Gingerbread Roll with Sugar Cookie Buttercream! This buttercream is made with International Delight® Sugar Cookie Coffee Creamer, and let me tell you…this is the most delicious buttercream I have EVER tasted. No lie.

International Delight® is the perfect addition to my morning cup of joe, not to mention this year it is helping me continue the tradition of the holiday baking with my kids. I started our baking expedition with the deliciously flavorful International Delight® Salted Caramel Mocha in my coffee, oh yes salted caramel and mocha are a true match made in heaven. But then again I may be biased, I’m a little bit addicted to anything salted caramel.

The two flavor combos of gingerbread and sugar cookie literally play so well together. You have a little spicy kick from the gingerbread and a sweet mellowness from the sugar cookie buttercream that balances each other out perfectly. Plus, the kids absolutely love this! The Sugar Cookie creamer is one of the best creamers I’ve ever tasted, not only in my coffee, but baked in all sorts of things as well. GO HURRY, BUY NOW!

  1. This looks amazinggggggg! I just had sugar cookies with my coffee this morning. I don’t know if I could handle having sugar cookie flavor IN my coffee; I might die of delicious.

  2. OMG I love this recipe!! What a gorgeous treat for the holidays! Have to say, I love those creamers but never thought to use them in a recipe!! So smart!!

  3. This sounds so awesome, I can’t wait to make it. However, is there a substitute for the International Delight? The whole reason I bake and cook is too avoid pre made store bought products that I have no clue what is in them. I do enjoy I.D, however I just don’t buy it anymore. Thanks for posting this recipe:)

    1. Hi Jen, I made this in collaboration with International Delight so unfortunately I’m not too sure of a suitable substitution for the creamer to give it the sugar cookie flavor. You could always just make it a vanilla and add some heavy cream and about 2 tsp vanilla.

  4. I made gingerbread roll, I used French vanilla creamer instead. Also, I used 3-cups of powdered sugar for my buttercream. The roll came out delicious, not too sweet- just perfect.
