Cinnabon Cookies

"Clever cinnamon-bun cookies that taste like a cross between cinnamon toast and the ever-popular mall-bought dessert! Very addictive! Serve along with my Perfect Cream Cheese Frosting for dunking."

Ready In:




  • Oven 375°.
  • Cream together; the first 4 ingredients.
  • Beat in the eggs.
  • Add the vanilla, cinnamon, and the flour.
  • Cover the dough and place in the fridge to chill for 1 hour.
  • Combine the filling ingredients and place in the microwave.
  • heat until butter melts.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Divide the dough into two equal portions.
  • Roll each out into a 12 x 6-inch rectangle.
  • Spread half of the filling onto each rectangle.
  • Roll each lengthwise into a log.
  • Cut into 1-inch slices.
  • Place each coookie onto a greased cookie sheet about an inch or so apart.

  • *I find it is easier to slice the rolls of dough if you first put them into the freezer for a few minutes.

    These are excellent with some cream cheese frosting on top. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside- yummy! I would definitely recommend freezing them a little before cutting into cookies- made it much easier. Thanks for posting!

    very tasty. Could use a bit of frosting on top of it. Other than that it was very good.
  3. Cilantro in Canada
    These are an unusual cookie but filled with flavour. I will be making these again for sure. Thanks for the recipe.

I am a newlywed living in beautiful Virginia with my husband and 3 doggies. I'm a little on the hyper side and I am happiest playing hostess and cooking for a crowd! My kitchen is my domain and I find cooking to be very therapeutic. On a day off you might find me brewing a fresh pot of iced tea and hanging out in the kitchen either cleaning and organizing or tinkering with recipes! I rarely follow favorite recipes to a "T", preferring instead to allow my creative side to take over. I especially love the holidays because it gives me even more of an excuse to bake! In the summertime I love visiting my mom and stepdad in the VA Beach area. I love the ocean and I love to go shopping with my mom!
