Swirly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Cookies. Is there anything better than a big doughy cinnamon roll?

Swirly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Cookies (12) It’s hard to say, but at the moment I’m failing to think of anything. The problem with cinnamon rolls is that they require a bit of planning ahead and sometimes you just haven’t done that when a craving hits.

Swirly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Cookies (7) Like those moments when you just have to have a cinnamon roll immediately or you may die. Does that happen to you too?

Swirly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Cookies (4) Some days I have the hardest time deciding what to make and it’s usually not from lack of inspiration. It’s more common for me to have too many ideas than not enough and, being the indecisive person that I am, making a decision is just beyond my ability on occasion. When that happens I resort to cookies. When in doubt, make chocolate chip cookies. I’m thinking of making that my motto because it always applies.

Swirly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Cookies (11) So I was all set to make some chocolate chip cookies on said day, but then I remembered that I have never shared one of my family’s favorite cookies with you and I switched gears.

Swirly Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Ingredients

    Cookies:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • cinnamon
  • Glaze:
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl.
  2. Scrape sides of bowl, then add eggs and mix until combined.
  3. Add vanilla, soda, and salt, then flour one cup at a time and beat after each addition.
  4. Divide dough into halves and roll one half out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle roughly 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle very generously with cinnamon and spread to cover every spot. Roll dough up longways into a large snake shape and use a sharp knife to slice cookies of your desired size. Place each cookie flat on a baking sheet lined with parchment or silpats, about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until edges start to turn golden brown (or right before for doughy cookies). Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack.
  6. Whisk milk and powdered sugar in a small bowl until smooth then add salt and vanilla and drizzle over cooled cookies.

    Should these be eaten the day they are made? How do they hold up? They are gorgeous! I am thinking of a pumpkin glaze.

      Hi Stephanie! Yes, these are definitely best when they are freshly baked, however they will last a day or two if stored in a sealed container. Oh my, and a pumpkin glaze sounds divine!!!! Thanks!
