oatmeal cinnamon roll cookies.

I feel like I always say this.. but this may be the best thing I’ve ever made. I just happen to love ALL sweets though… I’m not kidding when I say that these smelled like straight cinnamon rolls coming out of the oven. Nothing is better than that smell.

Recipe:

for the dough:

  • 1 & 1/2 sticks butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 cups Kodiak Cakes Cinnamon Oat mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

for the cinnamon filling:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • splash vanilla

for the cream cheese icing:

  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • splash vanilla

Instructions:

  1. Using an electric mixer, combine butter and brown sugar and mix.
  2. Add egg and vanilla then mix until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
  3. Add Kodiak Cakes Cinnamon Oat mix and baking soda in about 2 increments, mixing after each addition.
  4. Roll the dough into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge.
  5. Meanwhile, make the cinnamon filling – in a small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and melted butter.
  6. Mix until smooth and set aside.
  7. Make your cream cheese icing – in a small bowl, combine butter and cream cheese and mix until smooth.
  8. Add vanilla and powdered sugar in about 3 increments, mixing after each addition and mix until creamy and smooth.
  9. Remove the dough from the fridge and place on a floured surface.
  10. Roll the dough out into a square until it’s about 1/2 inch thick.
  11. Spread your cinnamon mixture evenly over the dough.
  12. Carefully roll up as you would cinnamon rolls.
  13. Wrap your log of dough in plastic wrap and chill once again for about 30 minutes.
  14. Slice your cookies – about 1 inch thick – and place them on a cookie sheet.
  15. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes – they will expand and be big cookies, but who doesn’t like a big cookie?!
  16. Let cookies cool, then add your cream cheese icing to a piping bag.
  17. Drizzle icing over each cookie and serve!
