This dessert is decadent.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • To prepare your pans: You can do this two very different ways.
  • Use 6in cake pans. Prepare pans by using baking spray with flour in then, then cut a circle piece of parchment paper to fit in bottom of cake pan. Spray parchment insert as well.
  • Get a piece of parchment paper to fit on your baking sheet. Draw 4-6 in circles on your parchment with pencil. Turn the side you drew on face down.
  • For method one, take about 1/4 cup of dough and spread it across the bottom of cake pan. It should be thin! But try to cover the bottom entirely.
  • For method two, take about 1/4 cup of dough and drop it into center of circle. Carefully spread dough out to reach the pencil line. It should be thin.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes. Watch them carefully as they burn easily. When they are done, remove them from the pan immediately. If you did method one, use the tip of a small paring knife to pull up the edge of the parchment and slide the cookie out. If you did method two, use a large spatula and slide the cookie off the parchment to a cooling rack.
  • I cut out perfect circles with a cookie cutter. I recommend doing this before the cookies cool to avoid cookies from cracking.
  • Take one circle cookie and place it on your plate or serving tray. Gently add frosting (or whipped cream if you are smart) with a piping bag. Add another cookie, do another layer of frosting. Gently add final cookie.
  • Drizzle with hot fudge.

This is a cinnamon sugar cookie with frosting and hot fudge drizzle.

I made this ultimate dessert with a wonderfully rich vanilla frosting.

I have no idea what I was thinking.

Its almost too sweet. Even for me.

However, right after hubby ate one, he asked me, “What was that?”

I explained it to him in great detail and he just sat there looking at me.

Uh oh.

Then he said, “That was by far the best thing I have ever tasted in my whole life. Better than any cake or cookie or cheesecake. Amazing.”

That is a big compliment from my non-sweet liking husband.

Ultimate Dessert

(I think the perfect substitute would be homemade whipped cream with a touch a vanilla added. (just mix 1 cup of whipping cream in mixer and add 1 tsp vanilla)

But the cookies on the other hand… well.

They. Are. Good.

Light. Refreshing. So subtle in their flavor, the cinnamon just teases your taste buds. These would be wonderful with ice cream or cool whip (yes, I use cool whip sometimes and I love it) or dipped into hot cocoa or coffee.


Did you catch that? DIP THIS IN YOUR COFFEE.

You’re welcome.

Ultimate Dessert

Or if you are certifiably crazy like me, add some more frosting to the top.

Be sure to accidentally drizzle a white heart on the plate. 😉

  1. I had to make these, it really couldn’t wait!
    I had some girls over for a partylite show last night and served just desserts. I only did 2 cookies and whipped cream in the centre with the drizlled with hot fudge and they were perfect. I had a lot of desserts and was trying to keep everything on the smaller side so the girls felt like they could eat one of everything!! These cookies are my new FAVORITE cookie and turned into a dessert…oh my word! The cookie is crisp and really cinnamoney and just delicious! I thought they might be a bit of a chore to make but they weren’t at all! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing such a fantastic recipe!

  2. well now, that’s some high praise indeed! when i consider my ideal slice of cake, it’s 3 parts frosting and 1 part cake. that said, this would definitely be my ultimate dessert, especially since cinnamon is so heavily involved! good thinking, amanda. 🙂

  3. Another great recipe by you. I have my in-laws coming over Sunday for a dinner and dessert for their non-birthday party LoL, this would be a great since they dont want a birthday cake. I think the whipped cream would be terrific maybe add some mint extract to it. oohh I can already taste it. YUM!

  4. Be still my heart! My son had me try to recreated those Double Doozie cookies you see at the mall…they too are SO sweet but so good.

  5. These look unbelievably delicious! I feel the weight pouring on just looking at them! You know what kept running through my mind when I was looking at these pictures and reading your post?????…..that this is totally a dessert recipe that would be on the menu at some fancy shmancy restaurant. Seriously. You need to go professional.
