I have been on a bit of a healthy baking streak lately. With help from this wonderful website filled with yummy recipes. Clean body, clean mind, that kind of thinking.
But sometimes a girl just needs her sugar. AmIRight?!
I felt like baking cinnamon rolls, which are filled with the sugar I wanted, but I didn’t have enough flour. So I made cookies that look just like cinnamon rolls. Best. Idea. Ever.
|Ingredients I used:
– 225 gram butter (I used unsalted plant based butter)
– 150 gram sugar
– 1 ts vanilla sugar
– 1/4 ts salt
– 300 gram flour
– cinnamon, and lot’s of it.
|Kitchen utensils I used:
– electronic scale
– electronic mixer
– silicone baking spatula
– plastic kitchen foil
– rolling pin
– baking paper
– baking tray
1) mix the butter, sugar and vanilla into a creamy paste.
2) add the flour and the salt and mix into an even dough.
3) roll half the dough into a thin strip with your rolling pin. This is easiest when you place the dough between two sheets of plastic foil.
4) take off the top bit of plastic foil, and put as much cinnamon as you like on the dough. I added about 1 1/2 tablespoon I think. (or maybe two, I don’t know, I just did what felt right, which was a buttload, cause I love me some cinnamon)
5) use the bottom plastic foil to roll up your dough. Think like a sushi master and you’ll get it. Make sure there aren’t bits of air in your roll. This is an important part, so feel free to take about an hour to do it, it’s all about the results here people.
6) repeat steps 3 through 5 with the other half of the dough.
7) place your rolls in plastic foil and let them cool in the fridge for at least an hour.
8) don’t be the douche who thinks he’s better than the cooling off period. You’re not.
9) take out your two rolls and slice of cookies as thick as you like. (mine were between 5 and 10 mm thick)
10) place the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper in a pre-heated oven at 175 degrees Celcius for 15-20 minutes.
11) restrain yourself from eating while the cookies cool off for at least five minutes.
