Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

I LOVE cinnamon rolls! They may be my favorite thing… ever!

When I saw this recipe from, Picky Palate, I knew I HAD to make them! These. are. INCREDIBLE! Hands down one of my favorite cookies!

If you are looking for a treat to completely “Wow” your guests, then this is the recipe! Whenever I make them, they are the first thing to disappear… and I am sure they will be at your house or party, too! 

Be sure and visit  Picky Palate for the recipe :)

    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!

  51. 51

    Susan Brady says:

    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?

    • 53

      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 says:

        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 :)

  53. 55

    Oh MY goodness! I made these this morning and they are so divine!! Amazing, amazing! I’m taking some to my neighbor so say “Happy Birthday” ~~ she will love them! Thanks so much for posting :)

  54. 56

    Oh my! Not that I need another reason to eat cinnamon lol, but I will be pinning this recipe none the less! I am visiting via Riches to Rags!

    Going to make these for a cookie swap that my daughter and I are hosting when I get to her home in Kansas. Hope they are as good as they look!!!! Happy Holidays to You!!!! :0)

  56. 58

    amazing receipes for the holidays… looks really delicious too!!!

  57. 59

    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 says:

      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.

  58. 62

    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.

    • 64
      Chef in Training says:

      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.

        Thank you, I’ll try that and hope that they’ll still turn out as good as they look in your picture! (: Love your blog!
