Orange Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Cookie Dough:

1  Cup butter
1/3  Cup fine sugar
3/4  Cup icing sugar
zest of one orange, finely chopped
1  tsp. vanilla extract
1  Egg
2 1/4  Cups flour
pinch salt

Cream together the sugars and butter. Beat in the vanilla, orange zest, and egg until fluffy.

Fold in the flour and salt just until a sot dough forms.

Chill the dough for about a half hour and then roll out into a 12×12 square.

Cinnamon Paste:

1/3  Cup butter
1/4  Cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2  tsp. corn syrup
4  tsp. ground cinnamon
2  Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2  tsp. salt
1/2  tsp. vanilla extract

Beat all ingredients together with an electric mixer until smooth, fluffy and is easily spreadable.

Spread evenly over the surface of the rolled out cookie dough.

Roll the dough up tightly and wrap in plastic wrap and chill for an hour or so.
Cut 1/4 inch slices of the dough and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.

Bake in a preheated 350° F oven until they get golden at the edges, about 13 to 15 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack before spreading or drizzling the glaze into the cookies.

If freezing these cookies, I would recommend adding the glaze after they have been thawed.

Glaze:

1/2  Cup icing sugar
2  Tbsp. corn syrup
1  tsp. vanilla extract
1  tsp. water

Mix together until smooth, spread or drizzle on cooled cookies.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
