Servings: 72 cookies
Calories: 140 kcal
  • 2 Cups 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 softened butter (slice 2 Tablespoons 6 times totaling 12 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/2 Cups packed light brown sugar divided into 1/4 Cups
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon divided
  • 8 oz softened cream cheese
  • 1/2 Cup powdered sugar
  • 2-4 Tablespoons milk to thin icing
  1. In an electric or stand mixer, cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream until well combined. Slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until well combined.
  2. In 2 batches, place in plastic wrap in a disc shape and chill for at least 2 hours for best results.
  3. Once chilled, cut each disc into thirds and roll into a 1/8 inch thick oval, about 12 inches X 5 inches.  Spread each rolled pieces of dough with 2 Tablespoons softened butter, 1/4 Cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 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.  Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
  4. To prepare frosting, beat the cream cheese until softened and smooth, slowly add powdered sugar and milk until desired consistency.  Frost cookies then place in refrigerator until ready to serve.  These are 100 times better chilled, trust me!!

    Jessica B. says:

    Just made these while kiddos napped. Used a short-cut of fridge sugar cookie-dough that I had on hand. Made it uber easy. Although I cut my discs a bit too skinny b/c baked up flat…but uber yummy! Thank you!

    • 23.1
      Jenny says:

      I was wondering how the refrigerated store bought dough would work, I imagined them to bake flat, so glad that you experimented with that! This dough in my recipe is so good and it even is a bit puffy to look even more like cinnamon rolls!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      • 23.1.1
        Jessica B. says:

        Will try with your dough recipe! Thank you. Despite flat…still yummy but you do kinda miss the visual.

    OMG Jenny!! 🙂 I am sucker for anything cinnamon-bun and when I saw these I almost fainted! I knew I had to make them! 🙂 I made them tonight and they were outta this world- the soft, chewy sugar cookie was heaven! 🙂 We had the first batch fresh and warm out of the oven, but the second batch is in the fridge now, chillin’. I’m not sure if they can beat what we had tonight, but I’m looking forward to finding out tomorrow. 😀 THANKS! 🙂

    Joycee says:

    I don’t know whether to say Thank You or I Hate You! These are killer cookies, can’t wait to make them. I just made my favorite sugar cookies today, the old standby’s that are so dang good but you know, these may be my new favorite! Thanks for sharing

    Krista says:

    Have mercy! These look delicious. What a horrible (for my diet) idea. No really, these are genius. I’d love a batch of them right now.

  38. 38

    I always think “chocolate” at Valentine’s Day … this is such a yummy change of pace. I think a tall glass of milk (lowfat, of course) would be perfect w/ those sugar cookies!

    Veronica M. says:

    Jenny, you are a genius! I think this may be the most creative cookie I’ve ever seen!!! I just HAVE to make these for Cookie Mondays–my hubby’s co-workers will love them! Thanks for the inspiration!

  41. 41

    Jenny, these look dangerous! I was helping the boys w/ their Valentine’s tonight and sad that you wouldn’t be ringing our door w/ a plate of treats. 🙂 Kade’s going to take treats around to his friends tomorrow, I think we’ll be making these instead of the same old frosted heart cookies. THANKS!!

  42. 42

    I think I want to turn these into magnets and put them on my fridge, so I can look at them all day long, and pretend to eat them whenever I want!

    • 47.1
      Jenny says:

      Hi Kristine,
      The recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies. Enjoy!

      • 47.1.1
        Korbe says:

        Good to hear it only makes 3 dozen, because on the bottom of the post it said something about 6 dozen and I was going to ask for a half batch recipe, since some of them don’t break down well (ex. half of three eggs? half of 1/4 tsp salt?), but 3 dozen I can do ^.^
        Thanks for the incredible recipe Jenny, so excited to try it for my blog!

          Jenny says:

          Hi Korbe,
          The recipe does actually make 6 dozen, but the good news is, you can freeze the leftover sugar cookie dough and save it for later! That’s what I did 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

          Christine Cormier says:

          I had the same thought about making just 1/2 of the recipe…if there are 3 eggs, why not try to cup the recipe in thirds. Everything divided by 3 easily except for the baking soda and baking powder. I use a scant 3/4 teaspoon of each. I haven’t baked my cookies yet, but will let you know how the recipe turned out.

    That. Looks. delicious. :F (drool face)

    how long do you think it can stand without going bad? (It’s too much to ask you not to munch it all up right away. I’d just inhale these cookies if I were you) I was thinking of mailing it to someone, do you think it’d be a good idea?

  58. 58
    Kerry says:

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have three girls ages 5 and under and they LOVE cinnamon rolls, I have yet to find a super easy-whip-it-together recipe that tastes (for my benefit) like a Cinnabon (we are living in Germany and they seem to not be all that crazy about cinnamon stuff unless it is Christmas time and even then rolls don’t cross their mind)… but you found it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And we LOVE it and you for sharing it with us!!!!!!!

    Wow! What a great idea!!

  62. 62
    Sarah says:

    Made these last night and they were delicious! I should warn others though that I followed the recipe and got 86 cookies. I didn’t roll the dough out to quite 12″, sliced a bit thick and always chuck out the end slices when I do rolls like this. Six feet of roll and half-inch slices will give you way more than 36 cookies!

    Great recipe! I paired it with a “Cafe Milch” (German Cappuccino) and it was phenomenal! The best part is that there is very little time spent preparing and so more time can be spent enjoying! Keep those recipes coming!

    ann says:

    These look so GOOD. I am going to try and make these in a sugar free version since I’m diabetic. I’ve adapted a couple of recipes together to make a buttermilk tart that is so good no one can tell it’s sugar free. I’ll let you know if I can do this sugar free and how they turned out,. What a wonderful idea you had.

    That comment above mine made me laugh out loud! I made these for my husband to take to work but I think I managed to eat almost two dozen before he whisked them out the door. I think this is the most creative use for sugar cookie dough (which usually I have not much use for–it bores me) and putting the cinnamon roll filling in there really makes them taste wonderful. I also think your sugar cookie dough is the best I’ve ever had and will be using it for future sugar cookies. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Next time I’ll fully get my act together and make the frosting from scratch (I buckled and bought Pillsbury).

    All in all, they’re DELICIOUS and ADORABLE. Good times, good times.

    I made these for a wok function, and they were SO GOOD, that a co worker literally got down on one knee and proposed to me! Fist he asked if I could make these cookies for him for his wedding instead of wedding cake, then decided he should just marry me because he could have them all the time!

    I laughed so hard. These will definitely be making a comeback at our next potluck.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi! I made these cookies and quickly became super frustrated. When I chilled my dough I guess it didn’t chill enough. The dough stuck to my floured wax paper and I quickly returned the other two dough balls to the freezer. After this the dough was sturdy enough. However, my cookies were not are pretty as yours. They tasted great though!

    Lisa says:

    I had a problem with my dough sticking as well. I really, really want to make these but it turned into a complete disaster. Maybe another cup of flour? Maybe not enough refrigerator time? I’m also not sure what is meant by “place in plastic wrap in a disc shape”? Maybe because it’s midnight and I should actually be sleeping 🙂 If anyone has suggestions about the super sticky dough please let me know!

    I am in the process of making these cookies right now. I didn’t realize it make 6 dozen cookies, haha. My boys are going to eat them all tomorrow anyway. When I say “my boys” I mean full grown men. Starving artists indeed!lol.

    • 117.1
      Vanessa says:

      I sent this advice to my friend who, on trying the ones I made, decided to make her own.

      Make sure when you roll the dough out, there’s PLENTY of flour on the counter. One of my dough… thingies… got stuck to the counter a little. Also, don’t skimp on the brown sugar or cinnamon. The butter you spread on the dough has to be good and melty or it will put divits in the dough. Also, it yeilds more than 6 dozen cookies. Also, the dough is really crumbley so when you cut the rolls to put them on the baking sheet- be careful.

      That being said- These are my new favorite cookies and will be added to the line-up of Holiday season goodies I make every year.

    These cookies were awesome! I couldn’t find the vanilla in my house, so I used the same amount of maple syrup and it was delicious. To the person who asked about the sour cream in the recipe: #1 Thanks for pointing out there’s sour cream in the recipe! If not for you, I would have had to make two trips to the grocery store. I should read more carefully. #2 I tend to hate sour cream, but you definitely cannot taste it in this recipe. It works really well. These cookies are superb and definitely chill them before you eat them. Worth the wait!

    Made these tonight for our weekly Fun Friday swimming day – they didn’t look quite as good as yours. With that said, they were AWESOME tasting. I gave one without the frosting to one of my girls and she LOVED it! I frosted some and not the others. They are good both ways. Looking forward to tasting them tomorrow after spending the night in the refrigerator. Good recipe!

    I do want to know why my cookies were “meltier” looking. They didn’t hold their shape as well – not sure why.

    I have a question about this recipe.
    You say that the recipe calls for 12 (twelve TBSP.) butter, but then you say to cut 2 (two TBSP.) into 6 pieces each, totaling 12 TBSP. I’m no genius at math, but how do you figure 2 TBSP when cut into 6 pieces are going to magically equal 12 TBSP? I’m very confused. I really want to try this recipe, but I don’t dare until I know whether I’m using 12 or 2 TBSP of butter.
    I’m also confused as to why no one else has asked this question. I must be missing something.

    Mindy Van Dorn says:

    Is no one else confused by the ingredient listing for the butter with the brown sugar? “12 tablespoons softened butter, (slice 2 Tablespoons 6 times totaling 12 tablespoons)” There are 8 Tablespoons in one cube of butter, so two cubes cut 6 times would be 12 pieces, but each one would be more than a tablespoon.

  181. 181
    Mindy Van Dorn says:

    Okay, now that I sent the question, I understand. It sounded like I should take 2 tablespoon and cut those two tablespoon six times making 12 smaller pieces. But in fact you meant that six times I would need to cut 2 tablespoons of butter. I feel really dumb that I didn’t get it. So back to the kitchen to finish. Can’t wait until they are done. They look wonderful.

    Hi Jenny — This sounds like a wonderful recipe and I can’t wait to try it. But I have a question about the amounts of cinnamon. The ingredients calls for 1-1/2 tablespoons while the directions refer to six 1/4-teaspoon amounts which does not total up to 1-1/2 tablespoons. I’m guessing it’s a teaspoon of cinnamon per piece of dough, right, and not just 1/4 tsp.? Thanks for checking.

    heather says:

    I’m making these right now…. I’ve found so far 1/4 tsp is to small of an amount and that cutting them 1/2 and inch leaves them a little small, I tend to like cookies being a little bigger… not the size of a gold ball. The icing for me also needed more than 4TB of milk. Because it’s consistantsy other wise was like cake frosting…to thick to dribble. The photos above also look to have more than 1/4 cup brown sugar? But I just used what the recipe called for. They’re not bad…but not as good as I’d hoped. I expected sweeter and more cinnamony like a cinnamon roll but flatter and smaller.

    Re: Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies
    If I cut each of the six ovals (2 discs each cut into thirds) once rolled up every 1/2 inch, I get 24 cookies per roll. times 6 ovals rolled up = 144 cookies = 12 dozen. The recipe says it makes 4-5 dozen. Please let me know where I am making a mistake. I plan to make these tomorrow, December 18, 2013. Many thanks,

    Hi there can anyone explain to me the butter. It says you need 12 tablespoons of butter, but when it comes to spread it on the dough it says “spread 2 tablespoons on each dough”. So why do you need 12 tablespoons? Wouldn’t you need only 4 tablespoons?

    ok – i must have done something wrong. the dough was sticky (i had to freeze it), rolling it out needed a lot of flour as it was still sticky and got sticky fast as the dough warmed up. i softened the butter but it stuck to the sticky dough. rolling it up was ok – i recommend making it a tight roll. the cream cheese frosting never made it hard to store cookies unless you really chilled the cookie before storing. all in all a good idea but it seemed like some tips/hints would have helped. not sure where i went wrong so any and all advice welcome

    These look amazing and I will be trying these this weekend for our annual Cookie Exchange! I did have a question about the butter in the cinnamon, brown sugar mixture. Is that supposed to be 12 teasooons? Please clarify. I do not wanna mess these up! I’ve been eyeing them for a few weeks now! 🙂

    I was so excited to try this recipe. It was very labor intensive and the width that you cut your cookies to is CRUCIAL. I ended up having to cook mine for wayyyy longer than the recipe and I had some that were still really doughy. However, everybody loves cinnamon rolls and I have received nothing but compliments on the ones that were good enough to reach the public.
    Probably not a good cookie for a baking day because it steals a lot of the attention, but a great recipe nonetheless.

    I have nooo time to chill for two hours or I’ll be late for my cookie exchange! They have been in the fridge for 45 minutes and I have to start baking. Is it going to make a huge difference if I take them out and bake them now?

    OH yum! I made these tonight. A huge recipe though but worked out for two cookie exchanges I have to go to. I have sampled, and sampled & sampled. These are a cross between a snicker doodle & a cinnamon roll. I have refrigerated/covered & just hope they stay fresh enough for the party in 2 days. A great idea. Thanks for sharing. Oh, I added just a smitten of Christmas sprinkles & Christmas colored sugar on about 1/3 of them. They look lovely on the serving tray.. adds a festive look.

    Hi I was wonderin if u could maybe provide a scaled down version of this recipe. I would love to make them, but 6 dozen is quite alot. 2 dozen might be more realistic for alot of us. Thx, and they do look delicious!

    Can you cut your cookie recipe in half and still have the same quality?

    There seems to be a discrepancy in the cinnamon in the recipe. The ingredients list says
    1 1/2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon, divided
    The instructions say
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    which is supposed to be 1/6 of the ingredients.

    Notice the tablespoon in the first and teaspoon in the second. Can you tell me which it is?

    I made the dough and refrigerated over night. After rolling it out I tried to roll it up but it was too soft and fell apart. What did I do wrong?

  255. 255

    Made these before love them! Can I make these fill the dough roll freeze then slice and bake later?

    Lola Lambrechts says:

    WHAT?! These are amazing (well at least they look it) I am totally going to make these this morning! My brother and sister said that they’d rather have real cinnamon rolls! But then I showed my sister some of the pictures, and she said that I could make them instead! Thank you!!

    I am wondering about freezing these for a cookie swap. When is the best time to freeze in the process (after icing?) These look wonderful!

    I’m a huge fan of both cookies and cinnamon rolls and I love that this recipe combines both! Definitely a must-bake cookie recipe, for sure!

    Ana says:

    Hi, I wonder if anyone has made these. I just made them and my batch is very sticky, is this normal, should I add more flour? I live overseas in a very humid weather and also maybe the flour is not very strong. Any suggestions?

      Melissa says:

      Did you chill the dough in the fridge overnight? if not, you may want to add more flour when rolling out the dough. i keep my counter good and floured when rolling them out and i don’t have the sticky issue (but also I’m NOT in a humid climate)

    I found this recipe back in 2010 when an old coworker forwarded this recipe to me and asked me to make them. I am SO GLAD I DID. I have been making these ever since – and I get asked to make these so often. This is hands down my absolute favorite cookie. and 100% fact they are better cold. just wanted to say thank you. i love these. and i’ll make them until i die.
