Here are the ingredients that you need to compile to complete this recipe:
CINNAMON FRY BREAD COOKIE BASE
- 1 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 3 tbsp butter melted
CINNAMON HONEY BUTTERCREAM
- 1/2 cup butter room temp
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
Here are the directions that you need to follow to complete this recipe:
For the first step, you need to fully preheat the oven to 350. Then in a large mixing bowl, add all of the shortening, butter, and brown sugar together until it’s all well combined. Mix for 2 minutes. Add eggs and mix until just combined.
Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix until dough just comes together.
If making large, Crumbl style cookies, scoop out 1/2 cup of dough per cookie. You can fit 5-6 cookies on a normal cookie sheet. Roll each cookie into a ball. Split the ball in half and push it back together again, with one of the “rough” split sides on top. This will add texture to our cookie when it’s cooked.
Drizzle about 1 tsp of sweetened condensed milk onto the top of each cookie. Try not to let the sweetened condensed milk spill off of the cookie as it will burn. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, until cookies are just set.
When the cookies come out of the oven, brush melted butter onto each cookie while they are still warm.
While the cookies cool slightly, make the frosting. You can easily make the frosting by adding all of the butter, honey, and cinnamon to a stand mixer. Mix for 2-3 minutes until smooth. Add powdered sugar and vanilla and mix again.
Top each warm cookie with a scoop of frosting (or as much as you want!), serve and enjoy!
