Recipe of the Month – Cinnamon roll cookies

I love cinnamon rolls and cookies so what could be better than putting the two together? Cinnamon, butter, and sugar in a chewy sugar cookie. Yum! You can make these thin (and almost crisp) or go for a thicker, chewy cookie.

 

 

 

Cookie Ingredients

One batch of sugar cookie dough (make your own or just buy a roll)

1/4 stick of butter, melted

Cinnamon

Brown sugar

Icing Ingredients

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 t. vanilla extract

1/2 T. milk

1/2 t. melted butter

Directions 

Roll out sugar cookie dough into a large rectangle on a floured surface. Spread with melted butter. Sprinkle liberally with a layer of cinnamon followed by a layer of brown sugar. Roll up dough into a log and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 2 hours in the refrigerator or 30 minutes in the freezer. slice cookies off roll (thick or thin, your preference) and bake according to sugar cookie recipe.

For icing, mix all liquid ingredients. Very slowly drizzle your liquid mixture into the powdered sugar, stirring constantly until you get your desired consistency. Drizzle icing on cookies.
