  • 2 ounce cream cheese, softened

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

  • ¾ cup powdered sugar

Stir together brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over dough. Roll up from a long side. Place roll on a baking sheet or tray, cover, and freeze about 30 minutes or until firm enough to slice.

  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a serrated knife to cut roll into 1/4-inch slices; place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.

  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove; cool on wire rack. Drizzle cooled cookies with Cream Cheese Drizzle.
