Since I’ve been baking the same beloved cookies for my family recently due to the holidays, I decided it was time to try something new. Luckily, it was a total win with these Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies. They were easy to make, deliciously soft and the whole family loved them. They taste exactly like a cinnamon roll but in sugar cookie form.

Everyone who knows me, knows I absolutely love to make cookies. I’m not picky, I’ll make any cookies. Chocolate, peanut butter, sugar, oatmeal – you name it – I’ll bake it. That’s why I wanted to share this fantastic cookie recipe with you today that puts a spin on the traditional cinnamon roll and tops it with cream cheese frosting. Yum.

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookie
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

FROSTING INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 Tablespoons butter (softened)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2 teaspoons heavy cream (or milk)

DIRECTIONS:

TO MAKE CINNAMON ROLL SUGAR COOKIES: In a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and then the eggs one at a time and mix well. Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and mix. Chill dough for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Roll the dough into one inch balls and place on baking sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with your hand to about 1/2 inch thick. Bake 9 minutes or until the bottom edges are just slightly golden brown. Remove to a cooling rack and let cool before frosting.

TO MAKE FROSTING: Mix together the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy in a stand mixer or by hand. Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth. Add the vanilla and milk as needed to reach desired consistency. Beat until light and fluffy. Pipe onto cooled Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies in a spiral shape and sprinkle with cinnamon.
