Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Cinnamon roll cookies are soft and buttery sugar cookies swirled with a classic cinnamon roll filling, topped with an easy and irresistible cream cheese icing .

In a mixing bowl whisk together the flour, almond flour, baking powder and salt until well combined.

Step 1:  

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. On low speed, mix in the egg and vanilla extract until well combined. On low, mix the dry ingredients to the wet until just combined.

Step 2:  

Roughly divide the dough into two sections. Place one dough ball onto a lightly floured piece of parchment paper. Place a large piece of plastic wrap on top of the dough. Roll the dough into a rectangle about ¼ inch thick. Trim the edges of the cookie roll dough.

Step 3:  

Make the cinnamon roll filling. Melt the butter in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the light brown sugar and ground cinnamon into the butter until well combined. Spread ½ of the filling onto each of the rectangles.

Step 4:  

Make the cinnamon roll filling. Melt the butter in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the light brown sugar and ground cinnamon into the butter until well combined. Spread ½ of the filling onto each of the rectangles.

Step 5:  

Slice the dough into ½ inch round cookies. Place each cookie onto the parchment lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake the cinnamon cookie rolls for 11 - 13 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set and lightly golden brown.

Step 6:  

Make cream cheese while the cookies cool. In a bowl, whisk the room temperature cream cheese and vanilla extract into the powdered sugar until smooth and well combined. Spread or drizzle the icing on top of each cinnamon scroll cookie and enjoy.
