Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

These are divine. Truly. They taste just like your favorite breakfast treat but in fabulous cookie form. I wish I could take credit for the idea, but I stumbled on something like it and thought I would give it a whirl. My tummy is glad I did, but my thighs? Not so much.

  5. These sound dangerous... especially "lather with butter" part :) But if there is a piece of heaven to be had, I must bake these ... and very soon!

    Thank you for posting!

  6. So I just made these. They're delicious. They're not pretty looking, but that's just because of the sugar cookie recipe I used. Didn't make the glaze but they taste great without it so no biggie. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  7. I just came across your blog today and the second I saw this article I ran to my kitchen to make some out of a box of sugar cookie mix I've had in the cupboard forever. These are AMAZING. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

  8. The recipe of making the sugar cookie dough from scratch didn't work out too well for me, but they sure do taste yummy! I'll have to stick with store bought dough next time. Thanks for sharing!

  9. The second batch is in the oven right now. My first was a little brown, but still DELICIOUS. Taking them back to college tonight with me for my girls. I know already they'll be a hit. AWESOME recipe, and so simple! I was worried about rolling the log perfectly, but in the end it doesn't matter if it's messed up a little. Likewise, I was watching them in the oven and it looked like the swirls were separating - no big deal, they cookies will puff up enough that it all comes together.

    Thank you!

  10. This post could definitely turn you into my bestfriend! I love sugar cookies and Cinnamon Rolls are my hands down fave (notice I capitalized to show their important) so this recipe will be used time and time again.

  12. Not to be the negative Nelly here but I was very disappointed with this recipe. I love the idea of cinnamon bun cookies, however, your sugar cookie dough recipe was terrible. I found the dough to be dry and brittle to the point where it was very difficult to roll it out with a rolling pin let alone roll it with the butter, sugar and cinnamon lathered on it. I was hoping this recipe would be a quick fix for my cinnamon bun craving but I think for next time it would be easier to make real cinnamon buns with a yeast dough. Thanks for the idea though

  13. i'm so sorry the recipe didn't work out for you. i've never encountered a problem, but of course you can use the concept with any sugar cookie recipe. so please feel free to substitute with one you prefer more!

  14. WOW now THAT looks delish!! Can't wait to try it.

  15. This looks very delicious. And this too reminds me of the rainbow cookie that i've seen somewhere here.

  16. I have no idea what I did wrong, but I couldn't get my cookie dough to roll back up. The dough kept breaking apart. I don't know if I should have made the cookie dough instead of using store bought.

    I eventually gave up and just mixed it all together.

    I would really like to make some more more of these.

    Any tips?

  17. Is there any way we can get the recipes in a "print" version?? Please, Please!!

  18. Um... yum? That's about all I can say on this...

  19. Another post... sorry! I just tried making these. I used homemade sugar cookie dough (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/the-best-rolled-sugar-cookies/detail.aspx); I refrigerated the dough overnight, and I didn't have a problem with it (other than a little bit of sticking, but I'm kind of bad about that). My problem came when I had the cinnamon and everything else on the dough and was trying to roll it up. It wouldn't roll. Well... it would, but I couldn't move it. It was rolled so loosely that when I tried to move it at all, it fell apart, and I ended up with just a huge mass of cinnamon sugar cookie dough, because it wouldn't hold together with the cinnamon and brown sugar on it. Are there any tips for the rolling part that you would have? I'm going to try them again soon (not today, I've got more baking to do and don't feel like fighting with it). Any advice would be well received, because these look delicious and I really want to make them.

  20. @kgirl06 I flatten my dough out on foil and then use the foil to help roll it back up into a tight long roll. Also make sure to freeze or refrigerate your roll before slicing, otherwise it will fall to pieces :-) Hope that helps!

  21. Oh my goodness. How on earth did you come up with these?

  22. These are just like cinnamon rolls but flat! I'm impressed, I have to make some really soon.

  24. These look delish!! What are the measurements for the glaze ingredients??

  28. These look awesome! I love that you can make them from store-bought dough too if you're running short on time but need a good dessert.

  29. so i just got through making these, and i must say, this was one of the hardest things i've ever baked. maybe it was the kind of cookie dough i was using, it was betty crocker sugar cookie dough, the kind you have to add butter and eggs to. the first batch was a big sticky mess, it was impossible to roll up, and i tried putting them on parchment paper on the pans to bake. they ended up gooey melted blobs that were absolutely GLUED to the parchment paper. the parts i was able to pry off tasted amazing though. my second batch i tried chilling the dough before even rolling it out, and instead of parchment paper, i just sprayed my pans with cooking spray. they look a little better. haven't tried to get them off the pans yet, but they look nothing like the beautiful picture on this site. i'm dissappointed. they taste so good but are almost impossible.
