Hello! Have you ever craved cinnamon rolls and cookies at the same time? No? Well here is a recipe for you anyways! This recipe comes from one of my favorite baking blogs called sallysbakingaddiction. I have made many of her recipes before and thought i’d share this one with you all. Let’s get started!
You will need: A hand mixer or standmixer, a few mixing bowls, spoons, spatula, measuring cups/spoons, baking trays, parchment paper, plastic wrap
- 2 and 1/4 cups (281g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 3/4 cup (150g) granulated sugar
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons (15g) butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
- 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
I will be using the hand mixer method. If you are using a stand mixer, follow the same steps, and mix pretty much until it comes together each time. Remember to scrape the bowl.
First step: Cream the butter until it is smooth and not hard on medium/high speed.
Second Step: Cream the sugar in on medium or high speed.
Third Step: Mix in the egg and vanilla
Fourth Step: Mix in all of the dry ingredients on 1st speed
Fifth Step: Mix the dough by hand until it comes together. Once together, portion into two equal portions.
Sixth Step: Mix Cinnamon and Sugar together.
Seventh Step: Pin the dough pieces into a rectangle, she suggests 7×9 inches however i just pinned it until I thought it was good. After you have pinned it until it looks good, spread melted butter on the dough, one table spoon should do.
Eighth Step: Spread cinnamon sugar mixture on it in an even layer. Roll the dough into a log using the parchment paper to help you along.
Ninth Step: Chill for at least 2 hours. Since it was pretty cold outside I thought i’d chill it in a way Canadians would know pretty well. I chilled it for 1 hour. Note: Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C) before you do the next step, or you will end up waiting 5 minutes like I did. 😦
Once it has chilled cut it into 1/4 inch thick slices. I didn’t have a ruler so I eye balled it as evenly as I could.
Tenth Step: Place the cookies on a tray and bake at 350°F (177°C) for 12-13 minutes.
And voila you have Cinnamon Roll Cookies!
