Cinnamon Bun Cookies

I love cinnamon rolls so when I saw the idea for a cinnamon roll cookie I had to adapte the recipe to my taste. They turned out excellent!
Cookie Ingredients:
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp mexican or white vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, soda, salt, and butter like you would pie crust. In another bowl beat 2 eggs. Add sugar and vanilla; beat well. Combine the two. On a piece of waxed paper pour about a 5 inch line of cinnamon. Roll one heaping tablespoon of dough into a 5 inch rope. Press one side of dough into cinnamon. Coil dough, cinnamon side in, into cinnamon roll shape. Place onto ungreased cookie sheet two inches apart. Bake 7 to 10 minutes. Cool completely on rack.

In a small bowl whisk icing ingredients until smooth. Spoon icing into ziploc bag. Cut tiny hole in one side and drizzle over cookies. Makes 4 dozen.
