Cookie Dough:

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temp

3/4 cup sugar

1 large egg

2 tsp vanilla extract


2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted 

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tbsp ground cinnamon


1 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

2 - 3 tbsp milk

1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract 


1In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

2In a large bowl, use a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat butter and sugar on high until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes). Beat in egg and vanilla until incorporated. Turn mixer on low and gradually add in flour mixture. Mix until combined.

3Divide dough into two equal parts. Place dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out into a rectangle about 1/4” thick. Remove top piece of parchment paper. Spread one tablespoon of melted butter onto each rectangle. Mix granulated sugar and cinnamon together then sprinkle evenly over each. 

4Slowly roll up each rectangle tightly, peeling the dough off from the bottom piece of parchment paper. It’s okay if the dough cracks slightly, smooth out any cracks with your fingers. Cover the dough log in plastic wrap and cill for 2 hours.

5Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

6Remove dough logs from the refrigerator. Use a sharp knife and cut into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place onto a baking sheet, about

72 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned on the sides. Cool on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

8To make the icing, use a medium bowl and whisk together the confectioner's sugar, milk and vanilla. Drizzle icing over the cookies and serve.
