    Oh my gosh, these look delicious! I want to make them today! So do they harden like cookies do? Or do they stay soft? Would I have to use that sugar cookie recipe or do you think the pre-made sugar cookie dough from the store would work? I'm lazy… ha ha! Thanks for sharing!

    why do you need to put the cookies in the refrigerator? There does not appear to be anything that needs long-term refrigeration, Is it to set the icing?

    • I was wondering the same thing… have you gotten an answer? I was hoping to make these for a holiday cookie exchange but I wouldn’t want everyone to worry about keeping them refrigerated…

      • Chef in Training

        You can keep them out for serving. Just because of the cream cheese frosting it is best to store any leftovers in the refrigerator. It just helps to keep them fresh, but I have left them out for a day or two and they still are wonderful :)

    I can’t wait to try but I have a question. When you list multiple ingredients and say add slowly, do you mean add each one slowly individually in that order or mix the list together and then add the mixture slowly? I feel silly asking, but I really want these to turn out right.

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Chef in Training

      Hi Christy! You mix the dry ingredients together first then slowly add the mixture in slowly. With the frosting, the reason for the slowly add ingredients is to make sure you get it to you desired consistency. You can just watch it more closely that way :) Let me know if you have anymore questions. I’m happy to answer them.

  17. These look yummy and adorable! Can’t wait to make them. Trying out some new cookie recipes this winter :) Found your blog via pintrest. Looks neat – great pictures!

    Hey there! (: I love cinnamon rolls!
    I just made the dough and was wondering now , if it’s supposed to be that sticky?!
    I already put more flour in it, but I’m not sure, if I’ll be able to roll it out.

    • Chef in Training

      Putting it in the fridge for a couple hours helps to manage the stickiness when it come to rolling it out. Also when it come to rolling it out, make sure you flour the surface and rolling pin well.
