Making Cookies Inspired by TV Shows, Part 11: Schitt’s Creek! These Schitt’s Creek Cinnamon Bun Cookies are everything good in life and David would be obsessed with them.
If you have seen Schitt’s Creek, you know how important cinnamon buns are to the Rose family, haha, so I just had to make these! For the cinnamon rolls, I just used Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. If you want to make homemade cinnamon rolls, go for it — that just takes more time!
These cookies are so fun and seriously so yum.
schitt’s creek cinnamon bun cookies
- 1 cup brown butter
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (i use dark but light works too)
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt or sour cream
- 3 cups flour
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 can cinnamon rolls (or 6 homemade cinnamon rolls)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch optional
- Start by cooking the cinnamon rolls. follow the instructions on the package and let them cool completely.
- While the cinnamon rolls are cooking, make the brown butter. To make the brown butter, melt 1 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Let it continue to cook, stirring constantly. Cook for 10 minutes, until the butter foams up and begins to smell nutty. Pour it directly into another container and let it cool completely.
- Cream together brown butter and brown sugar for about 3 minutes until it is lighter and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and yogurt and mix until combined.?? Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, and mix until just combined.
- Grab a large piece of dough and flatten it out. Put a cinnamon roll on top, then mold the dough around it. Chill the cookies for 30 min before baking them!
- When the cookies are almost done chilling, preheat the oven to 400. Cook them for 9-11 minutes, just until the dough is starting to brown. Cooking them at this high temp just cooks the dough and warms up the cinnamon roll!
- Let them cool for a few minutes. While they’re cooling, make the icing. Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Pour the icing over each cookie and top it with crushed cinnamon toast crunch. Enjoy!
