I love this cookie, I made it for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. They were gone before I was able to get it to the table… I used the NFSC half recipe…


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract( I used 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp almond)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 additional TBS Cinnamon to roll the cookies in
  • Glaze
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk ( I used butter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


    Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Mix flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and add a little at a time to butter mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated and the dough comes together. Chill 15 minutes. On piece of waxed paper, shape 1 tablespoon cinnamon into a line about 5 inches long. Using floured fingers, shape 1 tablespoon of dough into a rope 5 inches long. Press one side of dough rope into cinnamon.
    On ungreased cookie sheet, coil dough rope tightly, cinnamon side facing center, into cinnamon-roll shape. Press end of rope into roll to seal. Repeat with remaining dough. Cookies barely spread…Place cookies 1 inch apart on cookie sheets.
    Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove

If this is the half recipe for NFSC, then it should only have 1 egg. The full recipe takes 2. Unless even the half recipe needs two eggs because when you halve a recipe not all ingredients are necessarily halved. But could you check again and make sure you meant 2 eggs and not 1.

OMG, these sound amazing. I am going to make these for Christmas Eve. It's funny cause my hubby and I just went to Cinnabon the other day for the very 1st time and fell in love. Thanks for sharing!

I made these tonight. FABULOUS!!! Thank you Ambar2! Like Linda F144, I noticed that the recipe called for 2 eggs. I used 1 egg and it came out just fine. Also, there's no oven temp. Ambar2, you must bake yours on the surface of the sun because at 325 convection (equivalent to 350) it took a good 15-17 minutes. I added a little sugar to my cinnamon dip. Why not, right? :) The recipe yielded about 40 cookies. I left the glaze off the cookies I'm freezing. Will report any oddities, if any, when applying the glaze to thawed cookies.

I must say that the Puerto Rican sun is very Hot and its provably possible to bake out here.lol Sorry about that, I thought I put the temp. I bake in a toaster oven, the small ones I made for the kids took like 6 minutes and the bigger ones took about 9 or 10. And the eggs that my grocery store sells are supper tiny so I have to use 2. Sorry for the missing info. as far as freezing, never tried it. Let me know what happens. Glad you like them though

I made these last night and they turned out pretty good. The dough it a little dry so it was hard to roll without it breaking apart. I left one sheet in for 15 minutes and another in for 10 minutes and the 15 minute ones were over baked. But my hubby loved these so I will be making them again!
