Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

Do you remember me telling you that I was on a huge cinnamon kick lately?

Well, I still am and cannot get enough cinnamon in my life right now.

No, I am not pregnant.

After making the cinnamon roll protein shake for the 100th time in the morning for breakfast, I decided I wanted a little something different and sweeter.

So here I bring you cinnamon roll sugar cookies!

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

These cinnamon roll sugar cookies definitely satisfied my sweet tooth and craving for cinnamon.

Though you don’t need to have a raging cinnamon tooth to whip up a batch of these cookies.

You just need about 30 minutes and a craving for something sweet… or your kids begging you to make some cookies.

My daughter loved these. She was skeptical at first… as always… but after she tried her first bite she was hooked.

Before I knew it, the entire batch was gone. That day! I didn’t even see her take any more than the original 1 that I gave her.

Sneaky Sneaky.

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

And even though these look super fancy and hard to make, they are definitely not.

You can whip them up on a lazy afternoon. Or just about any afternoon for that matter.
