Cinnamon Bun Cookies

See how festive they look with the little tinge of red in the sugar? These are perfect for Christmas cookies!!!

I know...you would expect me to be done with cookies by now. All of the cookies that I did for the 12 Days of Cookies Extravaganza went to parties that I was going to. I still needed cookies to give as gifts! I have teachers, coaches, and family friends that count on my cookies!!! Time to get started again!

I was hunting around for some new ones and went to my friend The Recipe Girl's site. I knew she was making cookies and I was sure to find a recipe there! I was not mistaken. I decided on her Cinnamon Bun Cookies. Because I was going to be freezing these to go in tins at the end of the week, I opted to not ice them but that will be done at some later date!!!

These are the perfect cookies. Almost like those little pie cookies that Mom used to make with the leftover pie dough and sorta like crispy cinnamon buns! Yummmm!

The only change that I made to the recipe was to substitute some of the sugar for the roll with some red sugar to add a bit more festive touch to these!

This recipe can be found HERE!


As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

Wow, even given all the cookies you recently made, Judy, I wouldn't be able to pass out these beauties either!

I am sure there will be a lot of appreciative people on the receiving end.

Very nice job! :)

Sandy Smith said...

NICE. Dang it, now I'm going to have to get out the cookie stuff again. These are too good to pass up. :)

Judy, these look good to me, which is really saying something, because I am so SICK of cookies right now after doing almost the same feat as you, Courtney and the other 12-Day bakers.

They really do look lovely and yummy... and in March or so, when I can bear to look at a cookie again, I think I'll try to make them. ;-)
