  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In large bowl, mix cookie mix and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Stir in butter and egg until soft dough forms.
  2. On piece of waxed paper, shape 1 tablespoon cinnamon into a line about 5 inches long. Using floured fingers, shape 1 tablespoon of dough into a rope 5 inches long. Press one side of dough rope into cinnamon.
  3. On ungreased cookie sheet, coil dough rope tightly, cinnamon side facing center, into cinnamon-roll shape. Press end of rope into roll to seal. Repeat with remaining dough. Place cookies 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  5. In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.

Footnotes

  • High Altitude (3500-6500 ft):
  • Decrease butter to 1/3 cup.
  • Success:
  • To drizzle the glaze easily, place glaze in a small food-storage plastic bag, snip off a small corner of the bag and squeeze to drizzle glaze over cookies.

WAAAY too much work for what you end up with. Sticky dough. Tasted okay, but will not make again.
