With the 5-10-30 Free E-Cookbook’s release there has been far too much savory food on my mind and in the kitchen recently! These cookies are a nice departure from all the chicken, turkey and carrots I’ve been working with! They were so much easier than I expected them to be. Then again I was expecting to spend a lot of time in the kitchen since my favorite recipe (Flour’s Cinnamon Rolls) for cinnamon rolls takes a fair bit of time to make! We love cinnamon here, especially cinnamon rolls as you can tell by the Cinnamon Roll Pancakes and the Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake.

This recipe was a breeze, my oldest helped with the buttering and sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon. The most harrowing part was watching them like a hawk in the oven because I wanted to catch them when they were baked but not at all browned.

MY OTHER RECIPES


These delightful little cookies went with my husband to his office and the plate came home empty. I’ll chalk that up as a win, 58 cookies gone with less than 30 in his office. Hey, I needed to keep two for myself to enjoy with my coffee. They made a delicious pair!

To Make The Cookies:
Cream the 3/4 cup butter, sugar and powdered sugar until it is light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla;mix well.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt until just combined. Press down into a bowl and top with saran wrap.
Refrigerate for at least an hour.
To assemble the cookies:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut dough into four pieces. Roll out the first piece into a large rectangle, about 1/4 inch thick. Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter over it. Cute little Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing will satisfy your cinnamon roll cravings without nearly as much effort!

Roll it up, like you would a cinnamon roll. Using a thread, cut the cookies into 3/4 inch discs by pulling the thread under the log and crossing it and pulling tight like you were going to tie a shoe. Bake for 7-9 minutes, you want these cookies to stay blond, no browning.
To make the glaze:
Mix the glaze ingredients, pour into a ziploc bag. Snip a tiny bit off one edge of the bag and pipe a zig zag pattern on the cookies. Let the icing dry. Cute little Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies with Cream Cheese Icing will satisfy your cinnamon roll cravings without nearly as much effort!
