Cinnamon Roll Cookies Tips
Do you have to refrigerate the dough before baking these cinnamon roll cookies?Chilling your cookie dough
helps the cookies hold their shape in the oven. While it is an optional step, it's never a bad idea to pop the sheet of sliced cookie dough into the refrigerator for about 15-20 minutes before baking.
Can you ice the cinnamon roll cookies before they're completely cool?
Wait until these cinnamon roll cookies have cooled completely before adding the icing. Otherwise, the delicate icing will slide right off. Store your cookies
in a single layer in an airtight, lidded container to prevent them from sticking together.
Can you make cinnamon roll cookies ahead of time?
Yes, you can make them ahead of time! They make wonderful freezer or icebox cookies
. Keep wrapped (unsliced) cookie dough logs in your freezer until you're ready to bake. It's a good idea to wrap an extra layer of foil around the dough to prevent freezer burn and/or freezer odors. Another helpful tip: Save your cardboard paper towel tubes to help your cookie dough logs maintain their shape! Make a lengthwise slit in the tube, insert the wrapped dough log, and secure with tape before chilling. When preparing to bake, rotate the log as you slice to keep the cookies round.—Mark Neufang, Taste of Home Culinary Assistant
