Cinnamon Roll Cookies

What’s better than cinnamon rolls for breakfast? Cinnamon roll cookies for dessert of course! These delicious cookies are truly a sweet treat that reminds me of my favorite breakfast as a kid! Not only are these cookies light and fluffy, but the sweet icing on top makes the treat complete! See below for the complete recipe!



  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp butter(for filling)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla(for icing)
  • 4 tbsp milk


  1. Mix butter and sugar until creamed together.
  2. Add vanilla and baking soda and mix.
  3. Add flour one cup at a time and mix until well combined.
  4. Add buttermilk and mix until well combined.
  5. Refrigerate dough for at least one hour.
  6. Create the filling by melting the 2 tbsp of butter.
  7. Add brown sugar and cinnamon to the butter and mix until well combined.
  8. After the dough has chilled for an hour, spread flour on a flat surface and begin to flatten the dough until it is 1/4 thick. You will want to make sure that it is in a rectangle so that it can easily be rolled up.
  9. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture and spread over the dough until it is spread out along the entire surface.
  10. Roll the dough from the long side, making sure that this is done tightly to prevent large holes in the roll when they are cut into cookies.
  11. Put the large roll into the refrigerator for 15 minutes so that the dough will hold it’s shape.
  12. Cut the roll into cookies, whatever thickness you prefer would be fine, I made mine a little thinner so I could make more cookies!
  13. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes.
  14. After the cookies have been baked, mix the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk together for the glaze.
  15. Add glaze to the top of the cookies once they have cooled for at least ten minutes.
  16. Enjoy!
