Mixing the ingredients for the Cinnamon Roll Cookies recipe

I love any dessert that has the words “cinnamon” and “roll” in it. They’re also a very easy thing to disappoint. You know the feeling, I’m sure, when you walk into a bakery and see the most amazing looking cinnamon roll smothered in icing. You take a bite and it’s dry and stale and you want to cry. Just me?

What I love about these cinnamon roll cookies is that they’re not super high maintenance. If you are looking for a recipe that looks like it took a lot of time to make, but did not, this one is for you. The result is thick, super duper soft cookies with a slightly crisp edge, and melty, buttery centers, with just the right amount of cinnamon sugar in every bite. The sour cream in the recipe keeps these cookies nice and soft. If that sounds good to you, just go for it.
