Ingredients:

  • Cookie dough:
    • 1/2 cup softened butter
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 1/4 cup flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • Cinnamon sugar:
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • Cream cheese frosting:
    • 3 tablespoons of cream cheese
    • 1 tablespoon of softened butter
    • 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Beat together softened butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until fluffy. Add the egg and mix until well combined.
  2. Stir in the flour and baking soda until the dough is smooth and no dry flour is visible.
  3. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes to firm up.
  4. Prepare a rolling area with plastic wrap and a light dusting of flour. Roll out the refrigerated dough into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle on the floured plastic wrap.
  5. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon, then distribute them evenly over the rolled dough.
  6. Using the plastic wrap, gently spread the dough into a log. Refrigerate the log for 10 minutes to firm up.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Cut the refrigerated dough log into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place slices on prepared tray.
  9. Bake for about 9 minutes, until the cookies are just set. Avoid overcooking to keep them soft and moist.
  10. While the cookies are baking, microwave the cream cheese for about 30 seconds. Stir in the powdered sugar until smooth, then stir in the softened butter. Transfer the frosting to a small ziplock bag and snip off one corner.
  11. Pour the glaze over the hot cookies. Let the cookies cool on the tray.
