A recipe for cinnamon roll cookies that is made from sugar cookie dough, filled with cinnamon and sugar and topped with a yummy glaze!
These Cinnamon Roll Cookies are My. Absolute. Favorite. Cookie. EVER!!!
A few years ago I was wondering if there was any way to create a cookie in the shape of a cinnamon roll. After a few experiments, and many failed experiments, I came up with this method.
These cinnamon roll cookies are much like your typical roll and slice cookie, with the added bonus that they are chock-full of cinnamon-sugar goodness. Even though they are a bit labor intensive, they are totally worth it. Ever since I started making these cookies 5+ years ago, I have requests for them every holiday season. Is has quickly become a favorite Christmas cookie recipe in our house.
Above you will find a step-by-step picture tutorial. Once you have made the sugar cookie dough given to you in the recipe below, you will follow these pictures. If you would like to prepare the cookie dough ahead of time, here are some general guidelines:
- For refrigeration: prepare cookie dough up until the “roll up like a hot dog” step or after you slice the cookie dough. You can refrigerate dough for up to 3 or 4 days.
- For freezing: prepare cookie dough up until the “roll up like a hot dog” step. Wrap cookie dough with wax paper, place in an airtight zip-top bag (you may have to cut the “hot dog” dough in half to fit), and freeze for up to 3 months.
In both of the cases above, make the glaze when you bake the cookies.
What is your favorite cookie to prepare for the holiday season?

Happy Cinnamon Rollin’!!
