Cinnamon Roll Cookies
















Cookies or Cinnamon Rolls? For years these two treats have been the source of much debate in our home around the Holidays. While some yearn for fresh baked cookies, others have desired the light, fluffy taste of these delicious, homemade rolls.

Looks like a recipe I will definitely try this year in my Christmas baking. Think I will throw in some finely chopped Texas pecans into the cinnamon sugar mix.

Think I will make sure cookies cool a bit come to room temperature so that icing will hold its nice shape when drizzled on. If icing is put on while cookies are too warm from oven, it will just melt into the cookie and not have the drizzled on appearance of iced cinnamon rolls.

Can you break down sugar, carbs, calories etc. on your recipes?

How far in advance can you bake these? Also, can you make the dough and refrigerate for a day or two and then bake as instructed? I'm not a cookie baker, but want to try these for sure!!

Yes, you can definitely refrigerate this dough for a couple days and make them later. Thanks for asking!
