Recipe by Wildflour
READY IN: 28mins
YIELD: 4 dozen




  • For both cinnamon mixtures, mix (in separate bowls) well, set aside.
  • For cookie dough, combine shortening and dark brown sugar in large bowl.
  • Beat til well blended.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla til very well blended.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in small bowl.
  • Add to creamed mixture, mix well.
  • Turn dough onto sheet of waxed paper and spread/pat out to a 9x7" rectangle.
  • Sprinkle evenly with Inside cinnamon mixture.
  • Roll up jelly-roll style into a log.
  • Dust all sides with Outside cinnamon mixture.
  • Wrap tightly with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  • Heat oven to 375º, spray cookie sheets with butter-flavored cooking spray.
  • Cut cold log into about 1/4" slices. It's ok if you can't slice that thin.
  • Bake for 8 minutes or til lightly browned on top.
  • Cool on cookie sheets for 4 minutes.
  • Then remove from cookie sheets, and cool the rest of the way on wire racks.
  • When cool, mix glaze ingredients well using as much or little milk as needed for a thick yet pipeable consistency.
  • Pipe glaze over each cookie.
  • HINT:
  • Be careful when rolling this dough. If it starts to crack, smooth them. Roll slowly.
  • Also, I found it easier when you slice them, let the slice rest on the knife when moving them to the cookie sheet. If they fall apart a bit, don't fret, just push them back together! They bake up just fine!
  • Makes 3-4 dozen.
