I don’t know if I can do these Crispy Cookie Coffeecakes, cinnamon roll iced cookies, heaven in a sweet treat legit justice – but Imma gonna try! These are a piece of my history, a recipe I hold dearly close to my heart, a closely guarded family friends recipe that I am sharing with all of you!
I’m not gonna lie, these aren’t an easy mix and spoon drop cookie! These take time and love to make, it totally comes through in the finished product. It will become a family favorite for you as well!
These were my very favorite Bible School snack, I might of gotten overly excited to see them at pitch-in’s with friends, I might of dreamed about these, I might of stolen some from the church kitchen when I would help with Bible School when I got older……..these are amazing!
This is a yeast sweet dough – don’t be intimidated!
Divide it in half and roll it out- you got this! This dough doesn’t fight you and try to shrink back up on you! Sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar!
Roll it up and cut in to inch wide spirals!
Place them on a greased/sprayed cookie sheet – this will help make the crispy bottom!
This part is hard but just power through – take the palm of your hand and smash that spiral!
Bake’em up and cool on a rack!
ICING! Use a simple buttercream or a cream cheese!

This recipe calls for scalding the milk – it’s an old recipe and I did as it said! I did read this post on scalding milk, if you choose not to scald your milk I cannot be held responsible – it actually may turn out just fine, I have no idea- I wasn’t risking it!
