No Seriously they almost taste JUST like a cinnamon roll too! I never got around to icing them but OOOOh i can only imagine. OH, and Sadie (yes my dog) recommends them too! She ate half of the batter once i had it sliced into stacks to bake. She would like me to make them again! LOL!
For the filling: 1⁄2 cup sugar 2 TBSP ground cinnamon
For the dough: 3 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp ground cinnamon 1⁄2 tsp salt 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp vanilla extract For the icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 1⁄4 cup warm water 1⁄2 tsp powdered egg whites
For the filling combine sugar and 2 TBSP cinnamon in a small bowl, set aside. Whisk flour, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, and salt together for the dough in a bowl; set aside. Cream butter and brown sugar in a bowl with a mixer until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla; mix until incorporated. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients, blending just to incorporate; do not over mix. Trace a 16-x-9-inch rectangle on a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Pat the dough into the rectangle using your hands, then sprinkle half the cinnamon mixture over the dough. Beginning on a long side and using the paper to help you, roll the dough into a log. Dust the outside of the log with the remaining cinnamon mixture (I forgot to do this). Wrap log in plastic and chill for at least 3 hours. Preheat oven to 350F; line tow baking sheets with parchment paper. Slice chilled dough into 1/4-inch thick slices and arrange on prepared baking sheets, spacing 1 inch apart. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack. Combine icing ingredients in a bowl. Drizzle icing over cooled cookies, let stand at room temperature.
I'm southern, I live in the north (you'll never convince me MD is not the north) and I'm slightly sarcastic, sorry it just happens, like poop happens, my sarcasm happens too~
I LOVE my husband, my daughter, and my dogs, and I’m a Christian, though not always the best example. I try to do it all, but know i can't alone. I brighten my journey with a few bows, sparkles, monograms, and heels. This is how I brought my southern roots to the north!
