Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

OK folks!!!! These are THE BEST!!! Aren't they the cutest things you've ever seen?!?! Don't lie. And let me just tell you that they are SOOOO GOOOOOD!! I saw them on Picky Palate and made them the second I saw it...such a clever idea if you ask me. It also gives you your cinnamon roll fix without having to slave all afternoon on actual cinnamon rolls. They were so easy and they are so good! The best thing too is that you top them with cream cheese frosting...can't beat it. Definitely make won't be disappointed!

1 recipe sugar cookies AND
1 recipe cream cheese frosting (both found here)

12 T butter, softened
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar, divided
1 1/2 T cinnamon, divided

Make sugar cookies according to directions. After the dough has chilled in the fridge, remove 1 disk and cut into thirds and roll into a 1/8 inch thick oval, about 12 inches x 5 inches. Spread 2 T softened butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/4 t cinnamon. Start rolling from the longest end closest to you, rolling into a log shape. Using a sharp knife, cut 1/2 inch pieces of dough and placing it on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Remove and let cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transfering to a cooling rack.

Prepare cream cheese frosting according to recipe and spread over top of the cookies and then die on the spot because they are that good.
