  1. In a large bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup butter, shortening, light brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Combine the 1 tablespoon cinnamon, flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small microwave safe dish, heat the 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup of butter and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in the microwave. Stir frequently until butter is melted and the mixture is well blended.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out each half of the dough to a 12x6 inch rectangle. Spread 1/3 of the cinnamon mixture over each rectangle. Roll each one lengthwise into a log. Cut into 1 inch segments. Use remaining filling to place a small dollop of the mixture onto the cookie sheet where each cookie will be placed, About every 3 inches. Place 1 cookie onto each dollop with the cut side down.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Flip cookie sheet over onto a tray to remove cookies while they are still very hot. If the cookies are stuck, heat the pan in the oven again for a few minutes to soften the cinnamon dollops.

This is a great cookie! First off, I did not do the dollop either. I chilled the dough for 1 hour before rolling. Then rolled the dough out onto wax paper for easier rolling,using the wax paper ...

These ROCK!! I had to use my egg substitue (which is a banana mashed with 1 tsp. of baking powder) for the 2 eggs and they still turned out fabulous! I suggest doubling the sugar spread. Inst...

These were truly delicious but the dollop of cinnamon mixture on the cookie sheet wasn't neccassary, as I couldn't tell a difference. I still did it with some though and they all were very good....

Mmm great cookies! The flavor is delicate; not too sweet. They remind me of a cinnamon roll. The cookies are cakey and light. In terms of the method, I had to chill my rolled logs for about an h...
