Cinnamon Roll Cookies


When I was a kid, I loved the Pilsbury cinnamon rolls that came in the can. Okay, fine, I loved the icing more, but that's besides the point. There's just something the smell and taste of cinnamon and sugar that's comforting and relaxing so when I saw these cookies, I knew I needed to make them right away.

The best thing about them is how easy they are to make since they used pre-made sugar cookie mix. Granted, you could make the dough yourself, but aren't you busy enough around the holidays that a shortcut would be nice? I thought so.

Cookie Ingredients:
    • 1 package sugar cookie mix
    • 1 tbs. unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 tbs. cinnamon
    Icing Ingredients:
    • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 tbs. milk 
1. Prepare the sugar cookie mix as directed on the package. Then roll out the dough into a rectangle.
2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
3. Brush the melted butter over the dough and then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over it. Roll up the dough into a log and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
4. Preheat the oven to 375. Line baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and slice into 1/2" logs.
5. Place the cookies onto the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
6. While the cookies are cooling, mix together the powdered sugar and milk together in a small bowl to form a glaze.
7. Place the baking sheets or foil under the wire racks to catch any drips. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies on the rack.

Wow. Just WOW. I strongly suggest that you immediately run to your kitchen and make these now. They are absolutely delicious. They taste just like little mini-cinnamon rolls. I'm pretty sure I'll never made a Snickerdoodle cookie again now that I have this recipe. 


  1. Aren't these cookies the BEST?! So easy and tasty! And they look impressive too. I wowed my husbands co-workers with them. :)
