I have been baking up a storm. Busy days in the kitchen. Not for Thanksgiving...well that too...but for the Holiday issue of the Diner News. I have so much good stuff in this month's issue! Lots of new cookies, great dips and appetizers too. Some fun drinks and sweets will make the mood festive.
These Cinnamon Roll Cookies are wonderful. They are soft and tender, without being heavy. They have that cinnamon goodness and the extra sweetness of the creamy glaze. So good. I tried a few thicker cut and a few thinner. We really liked the thicker ones better, so that is how I wrote up the recipe. If you want more cookies, feel free to make thinner slices. They both work well.
Cinnamon Roll Cookies
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup powdered erythritol or equivalent
1/2 cup lightly flavored oil or melted butter
1/3 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup granulated sweetener
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp cream
2 tbsp powdered erythritol
In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, whey, baking powder and salt.
In a smaller bowl, break the eggs, separating the white from one egg in a cup. Beat the eggs with the powdered sweetener. Stir in the oil, almond milk and vanilla. Combine the wet and dry ingredients in the larger bowl.
Line two 8 inch square pans with parchment paper. Press half the dough into each one. Cover the top of the dough with additional parchment and make a smooth, even surface on the dough. Chill for 30 minutes.
Remove top layer of parchment. Brush the dough with the egg white. Combine the granulated sweetener and the cinnamon. Sprinkle it over the egg white. Cut the dough into 16 strips in each pan. Roll into spirals and place on lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Combine cream and powdered sweetener. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
