Makes: 60 servings Yield: about 60 cookies
Prep 40 mins Freeze 2 hrs Bake 375°F 8 mins  per batch
Cinnamon-Sugar Roll Cookies
  • 1  recipe  Basic Cookie Dough (see recipe below)
  • 1/2  cup  salted and roasted mixed nuts, finely chopped
  • 1/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cinnamon
  • 2  tablespoons  butter
  •  Vanilla Glaze (see recipe below)

1. Prepare Basic Cookie Dough. Between sheets of lightly floured waxed paper, roll dough into a 16x9-inch rectangle. In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup mixed nuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture clings together. Sprinkle mixture evenly over dough. Starting from a long side, roll up dough tightly. Wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper. Freeze about 2 hours or until dough is firm enough to slice.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cut roll into 1/4-inch slices. Place slices 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.

3. Bake in the preheated oven about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool. Drizzle cookies with Vanilla Glaze. If desired, sprinkle with additional chopped mixed nuts. Makes about 60 cookies.
