For the Sugar Cookie Dough:

  • 2/3 cup butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TBS milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the Cinnamon Roll Filling:

  • 2 TBS butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 TBS cinnamon

For the Vanilla Icing:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 TBS milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


For the Sugar Cookie Dough:

  • Cream together sugar and butter, until fully mixed. Mix for about 2 minutes till light and creamy.
  • Mix eggs, milk and vanilla and mix in.
  • In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients; flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Slowly pour the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients, while stirring.
  • With your hands, shape the dough into a ball.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap or place it in a ziplock back and place it in the fridge for 1 hour (up to overnight).
  • After the dough has been chilled , separate it into 2 equal sections of dough. Keep one in the fridge while you work with the other.
  • Roll the dough out into a rectangle, that is about 1/4inch thick.
  • Spread half of the melted butter evenly over the dough, leaving about 1/2inch of space around the edges without butter.
  • Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the butter.
  • Starting with the longer edge, carefully roll the dough up onto itself, rolling tightly into a log. If you get an tears, carefully try to seal them with your fingers.
  • Pinch the edge of the dough into the roll to seal the roll.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill for another hour (up to overnight).
  • Repeat steps 8-14 on the second half of the dough still in the fridge.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • After the dough has chilled get a really sharp knife and carefully cut each log into slices, about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner.
  • Bake the cookies for 9-12 minutes until they start to lightly brown on the edges.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to continue cooling on the cookie sheet for another 5 minutes (if you need to reuse the cookie sheet) or until they're fully cooled.

For the Vanilla Icing:

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
  • Drizzle the icing using a spoon or scoop it into a small ziplock bag and snip the end to drizzle the icing over the top of each of the cookies.
  • Allow the cookies to set for about 15 minutes until the icing is hardened and enjoy.
