Cinnamon Bun Cookies | wanna come with?

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

FOR THE CINNAMON SMEAR

  • 5 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon water
Method:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugars, salt, zest, and vanilla together on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 or 4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the egg, beating well to incorporate.
  2. Turn the mixer down to low and add the flour, mixing until just barely combined.
  3. On a sheet of wax or parchment paper (whatever your preference), roll the dough out to approximately 12″ square (or more if you want to get more spirals – see my comment above). When it comes time to roll into a log, the paper makes it easier to lift the edge and handle the dough.
