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. The ended up a tad crunchy on the outside, but super soft on the inside. YUMMY! I 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 cookies a try. We think you’ll love them just as much as we did.
Here is the printable recipe for these Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1-3/4 cups sugar, divided
- 3 large egg yolks
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp cream of tartar
- 1 TB ground cinnamon
- 8 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
- In a large bowl or kitchen aid, cream butter and 1-1/4 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. 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.
- Mix cinnamon and remaining ½ cup sugar in a shallow bowl or plate. Roll a tablespoonful of dough into a 6" log and roll in cinnamon sugar. Coil logs into a spiral shape and place on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar.
- Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes. Cool completely.
- In a small pot over low heat, melt baking chocolate, stirring constantly until smooth. Drizzle over cookies and let stand until set.
