Easy Cinnamon Roll Cookies

The other day a friend came over with her super cute baby to hang out, eat lunch, and just chat. Since we were eating lunch, obviously we also needed dessert! (Everyone has dessert with lunch right?)

Ok, so really it was just another excuse to bake some more of these “cookies.” Especially since she had just mentioned that she doesn’t really bake. So, I promised her that I would make something so easy even someone who “doesn’t bake” could make it!

These “cookies” require just a few ingredients and 12 minutes in the oven. So easy, yet oh so addictive. They are perfect for a cookie party if you want to look all impressive, yet need easy. Or, better yet, just make them for the kids after school treat, or you know, an after lunch dessert. Hey, they are also pretty darn good with coffee for breakfast. Technically cinnamon rolls are a breakfast food, right? So, that makes these sort of a breakfast food? Eat them whenever, I don’t judge.

Truth time. I am a from scratch kind of girl. But, sometimes the convenience of something pre made like cookie dough or pie crust is necessary. This time of year, I always have a Costco size box of pre made pie crust in the freezer.  (For the record I also have packages (yes, plural) of cookie dough in the freezer for, you know, emergencies…)

This recipe is exactly why! You can also absolutely make your own from scratch pie crust. But, while homemade pie crust definitely has its time and place (like for actual pies) I am going for fast and easy here.

Ok well, go grab a package of pie crust and make these! In fact, I highly suggest the Costco box because you will want to make these over and over. Take my word for it!
