Favorite Cinnamon Cookies

If you know me well, you know I am a little freaky about cookies. I love to make them, eat them, deliver them, pretty much anything that has to do with cookies, I LOVE 🙂 I have a few favorites that are my go to’s, like these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, or my husbands favorite Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. But I always love to try new cookie recipes, like today’s tried and true. These Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies were fun to make and a yummy twist on traditional Snickerdoodle Cookies.

These cinnamon cookies taste just like little tiny cinnamon rolls in cookie form! We even added a drizzle of white chocolate as a “glaze”. They ended up a tad crunchy on the outside, but super soft on the inside. YUMMY! I’ll admit that you really can’t go wrong with cookies covered in sugar and cinnamon and topped with a delicious glaze. If you love all things cinnamon, we highly recommend giving these Cinnamon Roll Cookies a try. We think you’ll love them just as much as we did.

Don’t be intimidated by these rolled beauties – they’re really simple!!

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Cookies:

These cookies might look fancy, but trust me when I say they are SO easy! Here are the simple instructions:

  1. In a large bowl or kitchen aid, cream butter and 1-1/4 cups sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt and cream of tartar. Gradually add flour mixture to kitchen aid until well combined.
  3. Mix cinnamon and remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow bowl or plate. Roll a tablespoonful of dough into a 6″ log and then roll the dough log in cinnamon sugar. Coil the logs into a spiral shape (like a cinnamon roll!) and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely.
  5. In a small pot over low heat, melt white baking chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth. Drizzle over cookies (make sure they are cooled!) and let them stand until the chocolate has set.
