Cinnamon Roll Cookies


Our ward had a tradition of serving cinnamon rolls to the men on Father's Day. This year they decided to do cookies instead, and Wayne was quite disappointed. I recalled seeing a recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cookies at one point, and decided that might be a good thing to try. I wasn't terribly impressed with them, but Wayne came home and said that in spite of them not having any chocolate chips, the cookies were great and the recipe was a keeper. So, here you go!

Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Dough:
3/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour (3 1/2 cups in Florida)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling:
4-6 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 - 1 cup brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon

Icing:
4 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-6 teaspoons milk

For cookie dough, cream butter and sugars; add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Combine dry ingredients and stir in. Chill for at least one hour.

Divide into four pieces and roll out into a small rectangle (mine was about 6x10 inches). Spread with butter and sprinkle with a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up like a cinnamon roll and slice into individual cookies. Place on baking sheet and bake at 350° for 7-9 minutes. Cool.

Cream cream cheese and sugar together. Add vanilla and enough milk to make a thin icing. Pipe onto cookies.
