The base of this cookie is a cinnamon and sugar cookie. It is a simple, thick dough rolled in cinnamon and sugar before baking. This cookie does not have cream of tartar in it.
Here are the ingredients that you need to compile to make this recipe:
CINNAMON SUGAR COOKIES
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
- 1/2 cup butter at room temp
- 8 oz cream cheese at room temp
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
Here are the directions that you need to follow to complete this recipe:
For the first step, you need to preheat the oven to 350. Now, you need to add all of the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar to a stand mixer. Mix everything together for 2-3 minutes. Now, you need to add all of the eggs and vanilla, and mix again.
For the next step, you need to add in all of the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix everything together until just combined.
Next, you need to combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. For Crumbl sized cookies, scoop 1/2 cup of dough and roll it into a ball. Drop the dough into the bowl with cinnamon and sugar and roll to coat the entire ball.
Add up to 6 cookies on a normal sized cookie sheet. Flatten the dough balls slightly. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Cookies should look just set, possibly still slightly doughy. This is perfect. Let the cookies cool completely.
While the cookies cool, make the frosting. Combine butter and cream cheese in a stand mixer and mix for 2 minutes. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix another two minutes.
Pipe frosting onto each cookie and dust with extra cinnamon sugar. Enjoy!
