Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

I wanted to incorporate two things that I love and create a cookie that was the best of two worlds: cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies. I usually just bake the cookies and put a glaze or royal icing on them. Instead I whipped up the cinnamon sugar filling and viola, warm, sugary, cinnamon goodness. 

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies Recipe
  1. • Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough (You want to make one you have from scratch, go for it!
  2. • ¼ Cup Sugar
  3. • ¼ Cup Brown Sugar
  4. • 1 T Cinnamon
  5. • 1 Ounce Cream Cheese
  6. • ¼ Stick of Butter
  1. Mix all the ingredients listed below the cookie dough.
  2. Roll out sugar cookie dough. You might have to sprinkle surface with powdered sugar to keep it from sticking. Also, make sure the dough is very cold and not warm and sticky. Spread the sugar mixture over the cookie dough and roll like a jelly roll.
  3. Slice cookies and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Make according to sugar cookie dough directions.
