I don't know about you but cinnamon rolls are my absolute favorite treat. However, they can be quiet demanding and require a lot of time. I decided to come up with something new and unique BUT with the same taste and feel of a cinnamon roll.

These cookies were such a HIT at my house and with friends too. They also freeze really well so you can pop one out of the freezer at any time you'll be craving a cinnamon roll!

This recipe is also made healthier, with cleaner ingredients and using a less amount than the original recipe would call for.

You guys are going to love these!

    On my screen, the recipe ingredient list ended, after "1/4 teaspoon salt", with the last ingredient written as "2 cups". Is it all-purpose flour? Is there any additional ingredients beyond that?
