Cookies base

Cinnamon sugar mixture

Cream cheese frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese cold
  • 4 tbsp butter softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup powdered sugar Add another 1/2 cup if the frosting seems too thin
  • 1 tbsp dulce de leche


Make the cookie dough

  • Preheat the oven to 350F then line a baking sheet with parchement paper and set aside.
  • Cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until light and creamy. Add in the egg, vanilla extract, and mix until combined.
  • Gently mix in the flour, corn starch, cream of tartar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, & salt until the flour mixture disappears.
  • Scoop out equally sized cookie dough balls and top them with the cinnamon-sugar mixture and place on the baking sheet. (Read make the cinnamon-sugar mixture below to see how to make it)
  • Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10 minutes then let the cookies sit on the baking sheet until fully cool.

Make the cinnamon sugar mixture

  • Mix the 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar with 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
  • Roll the cookie dough balls in this cinnamon sugar before baking.

Make the cream cheese frosting

  • Cream the butter, cream cheese, dulce de leche, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until smooth and creamy. If the frosting is too thin to pipe, chill in the fridge or freezer for 15-20 minutes or add the extra 1/4 cup powdered sugar and mix again.
  • Fill a piping bag or a ziplock bag with the cream cheese frosting and pipe the frosting around the cookie to create a swirl look. Fill in the rest of the swirl by piping the dulce leche in there and enjoy!
