For Real??? Cinnamon Roll Cookies

I just want to say one thing....I LOVE YOU Chef in Training (Nikki)!!!

That is where this recipe came from.

And it was so loved by everyone.

It is linked to:

I need to not waist anymore time and get this recipe posted.....

All you have to do is make your cookie dough and chill it for two hours.

After the dough is chilled, you just roll it out in sections, butter it, and place the sweetness on top.

I added pecans to this recipe, because you can't have a cinnamon roll without pecans, right?

Then you just roll it up and slice it.

Instead of using the frosting that was supplied I used Land O Lakes cinnamon sugar spread.

And even though there is a pound of butter already in the cookies, I added more butter to the tops.

Butter is good, right? RIGHT!!

I put the butter spread on while the cookies were still a little warm, and it melted down into the cookie roll.

I am definitely going to make these at Christmas time, and for cookie auctions, and cookie contests, and...and...and....

Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

2 c. sugar
1 c. butter, soft
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sour cream
6 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
12 TBS softened butter, (slice 2 TBS 6 times totaling 12 TBS)
1 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar, divided into 1/4 cups
1 1/2 TBS ground cinnamon divided
1/2 c. chopped (fine) pecans
*I mixed the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans all together in one bowl.

In an electric stand mixer, cream the sugar and butter. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream until well combined. Slowly add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt mixture until well combined.
Divide dough in two parts. Wrap each one in plastic wrap in a disc shape and chill for at least 2 hours for best results.
Once chilled, cut each disc into thirds and roll into a 1/8 inch thick oval, about 12 x 5 inches. Spread each rolled piece of dough with 2 TBS softened butter, and 1/4 c. brown sugar mixture. Start rolling from the long end closest to you, rolling into a log shape. Using a sharp knife, cut 1/2 inch pieces of dough. Place onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper (I used Pampered Chef baking stones). Bake at 350 degrees F. for 9 - 11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
Let the cookies cool for a few minutes on cooling rack and then spread on Land O Lakes cinnamon sugar butter spread.

"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God."
1 John 4:7

I ran across one of those survey things that you see in magazines, but this one gave the results from professional pollsters. The question was, "What do people love the most in life?" The categories were, children, animals, God, the United States, their enemies, and themselves. The results from this survey: 92% of the people said they loved children, God 86%, the United States 75%, animals 66%, loving themselves 33%, and only 20% confessed to loving their enemies. The main thing that this reveals, Americans love surveys. But Americans understand themselves least of all.
The Christian faith has always emphasized preeminently two very important things - truth and love - held in perfect balance.
What an empty world this would be if we didn't have the great warmth of love. How bare life would be if this great quality were withdrawn. I think our hearts would hunger for it. We need to take it upon ourselves to demonstrate the Christian faith.
