Recipe from Cookies at Home with The Culinary Institute of America by Todd Knaster (Wiley, 2011)

These thin cookies look exactly like tiny frosted cinnamon buns!

MAKES ABOUT 4 DOZEN COOKIES

COOKIE DOUGH

  • ½ lb (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup confectioners' sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½  tsp grated orange zest
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ¼  cups all-purpose flour


CINNAMON SMEAR

  • 5 Tbsp plus 2 tsp (2/3 stick) unsalted butter, soft
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp light corn syrup
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract


ICING

  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp water

Image1. Make the cookie dough: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, sugars, salt, orange zest, and vanilla on medium speed until light and fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes.

2. Add the egg, scraping down the bowl after it's fully incorporated.

3. Reduce the speed to low. Add the flour all at once and mix just until combined, about 1 minute.

4. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a square about 12 × 12 inches.

5. Make the cinnamon smear: In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix all the ingredients on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the bowl as needed.

6. Spread the smear on the dough and roll up into a tight log. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and freeze until firm, 15 to 20 minutes.

7. While the dough is firming up, preheat the oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

8. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into ¼ .-inch-thick slices. Transfer the cookies to the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 11/2  inches apart.

9. Bake until golden around the edges, 12 to 14 minutes. Rotate and switch the baking sheets as necessary for even baking.

10. Allow the cookies to cool for a minute on the baking sheets then transfer, using a spatula, to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

11. Make the icing: Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Lightly brush a thin layer on the surface of each cooled cookie. Let set before serving.

12. Store in an airtight container.
