Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

I am not a fan of sugar cookies, but I am a fan of cinnamon rolls, so when I saw this recipe I couldn't resist. It was a great decision. They are soft and taste like cinnamon rolls. Also, if you are looking for a really good recipe for regular sugar cookies to frost, they taste great rolled out with buttercream frosting.

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

2 cups Granulated Sugar
1 cup Butter, softened
3 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup Sour Cream
6 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt

12 Tablespoons Butter, softened 
1 1/2 cups Brown Sugar, packed - divided into 1/4 cups
3 Tablespoons Cinnamon, divided

8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cups Powdered Sugar
4 Tablespoons Milk, to thin icing

Directions for Cookies
1. In a stand mixer, cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream and beat until combined. Slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until just combined.

2. Divide dough in 2 and place in plastic wrap in a disc shape and chill for at least 2 hours.

3. Once chilled, Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut each disc into thirds and roll into a 1/8 inch thick rectangle, about 12 x 5 inches. Spread each rolled pieces of dough with 2 Tablespoons softened butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Start rolling from the long end closest to you, rolling into a log shape. Using a sharp knife, cut 1/2 inch pieces of dough then placing onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. 

4. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.

Directions for Frosting
1. Beat the cream cheese until smooth, slowly add powdered sugar and milk until you achieve your desired consistency. Frost cookies and place in refrigerator. Best served cold!
