Did I tell you I had a baby 4 months ago? Lack of sleep – I can’t remember if I told you, but I’m pretty sure I did. I also am pretty sure I mentioned that I gained 40 elbees during my pregnancy. 20 of it went as soon as I had the baby, but I’m kinda workin’ on the rest. And workin’ I am; changing diapers, feeding every couple of hours, playing, picking up the older one from school, teaching, drawing, feeding again, bathing… You know the story.
Sometimes I get to hop on the treadmill and enjoy a walk or even a run. That’s very rare, but I do it as often as possible. I now have lost another 12 pounds. Yay! Only 8 more to go to get back to my pre-preggo weight. Not bad, eh?
So. I decided that I was going to treat myself with a gain of 2 pounds and round up that number to 10 pounds left to lose. Fair? I think so. And what better way to do that than with a cinnamon roll sugar cookie. I even wrapped it up like a present and gave it to myself. I deserve it.
I hope you do the same. You deserve it, too.
These cookies were so good. Please make these. You’ll love yourself for it. And, take your time when making them. The only issue, really, is when rolling the dough into a log. Just follow my directions and you will do great.
Then there’s the cream cheese icing. Oh MY Word! It’s almost the same as the Cinnabon Icing. You can find it here. Try not spooning it into your mouth. I dare you. Especially since you’ll only use about half of it for the cookies. The other half can go straight to your belly.
