Giant Cinnamon Roll Cookie Cake
This Giant Cinnamon Roll Cookie Cake has all the cinnamon deliciousness of a cinnamon roll in cookie form, covered in a sweet vanilla glaze! And since cinnamon rolls are breakfast food, this cookie totally passes for breakfast too. 😉
So we all have our things that we are a bit anal about, right? I think I have a few. But the one that the hubs makes fun of pretty much every night is my obsession with our sheets and covers on our bed.
For some reason, our fitted sheet won’t really ever stay in place. We’ve even tried different sheets and it’s always the same. Every morning, it’s moved around and wrinkly underneath me. So before we go to bed, I always fix it. Always. I’ve even made the hubs get out of bed after he’s laid down so that I can fix it.
After 5 years, he seems to finally be over being annoyed by it and now just laughs and gives me a hard time. He calls me the “Cover Nazi”, inspired by the “Soup Nazi” from Seinfeld. 🙂
I go around to each of the 4 corners and re-tuck and smooth them. Then I make sure the sheet and comforter are lined up at the top corners so they are the same length when I pull up on them. If they are un-even, or the fitted sheet is all wrinkly underneath me, I can’t deal. Drives me crazy.
So there you have it. I am a little crazy, but the hubs loves me anyways. You can’t accuse me of not having a strong opinion on sheets.
And now that’d I’m done revealing my craziness, lets talk about this cookie cake. It’s not crazy in the way that I am, just crazy good.
I’ve been marinated the idea of a cinnamon roll cookie cake in my head for quite some time. That’s the usual course of an idea for me.
Then I remembered this deliciousness and decided to apply the same concept to a cookie cake. I knew I’d love it and I was right!
While it takes a little time to make, it’s not hard. It starts with a regular cookie dough. The cookie dough is cut into strips and rolled into a cookie cake right in the pan.
Using shorter strips helps a lot with moving the dough around. And keeping it cold and firm is also important. You’ll start from the center and work your way out.
It won’t actually reach the edge of the pan completely, but it will expand to fill the pan as it bakes.
Once covered with the glaze, it really is like eating a denser, cookie-like cinnamon roll. It’s FULL of cinnamon! And like a good cinnamon roll, it must have plenty of glaze. 🙂 This is easily one of my favorite cookie cakes. So yummy!
