Cinnarookies

If you couldn’t work out the name, these are cinnamon roll cookies! They were quite popular, especially at my house where two people ate 20 in about 2 hours. Cripes!

IMG_5157Ingredients:

Cookies:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling:

  • 1/4 cup very soft butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Icing:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk

To make the dough, first combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt and set aside. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.

IMG_5141Add the eggs, beating the first one in before adding the second, then beat in the vanilla.

IMG_5142Add half of the flour mixture, beat until combined, then add the remaining flour mixture and beat again until just combined.

IMG_5145Scrape all the dough into a ball in the bottom of the bowl (or a smaller bowl if necessary), cover, and freeze for half an hour.

After freezing, take half the dough out of the bowl, putting the rest back in the freezer. Pat the dough out on a piece of plastic wrap into approximately a 9X12″ rectangle about 1/2″ thick.

IMG_5146Spread half of the butter from the filling all over the dough, then top evenly with half of the brown sugar and cinnamon of the filling. Use the plastic wrap to curve the dough to start rolling the rectangle into a log.

IMG_5148IMG_5149Cover with the plastic wrap and freeze a further half hour while you pat out and fill the second half of the dough and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

After freezing, cut the log into 1/2″ pieces.

IMG_5151Place on two lined sheets.

IMG_5152Bake 8-10 minutes, rotating in the middle, until lightly browned and firm looking.

IMG_5153Cook the second batch of cookies, and transfer the first batch to a wire rack to cool.

IMG_5155Once the cookies are well cooled, whisk together the powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla together. Add milk to reach a good drizzling consistency, and drizzle on the cookies.

IMG_5156Let them rest until the glaze sets, then eat dozens at a time. Delicious!

Spread half of the butter from the filling all over the dough, then top evenly with half of the brown sugar and cinnamon of the filling. Use the plastic wrap to help you roll the dough into a log. Cover with the plastic wrap and freeze half an hour. Repeat with the second half of the dough.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

After freezing, cut the first log into 1/2″ pieces, placing the slices on two lined sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes, rotating in the middle, until lightly browned and firm looking. Bake the second batch of cookies, and transfer the first batch to a wire rack to cool.

Once the cookies are well cooled, whisk together the powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla together. Add milk to reach a good drizzling consistency, and drizzle on the cookies. Let cookies sit until the glaze sets.
