Honey Bun Cake Cookies

These could definitely pass for breakfast (wink wink).


  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Add egg and vanilla.  In a separate bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Pour dry ingredients into the mixing bowl and mix until combined.  Use a medium or large cookie scoop to place on baking sheets. 

Make the topping by whisking the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon.  Add in melted butter and mix until combined.  It will be crumbly. 

Use a tablespoon to press a well into the center of each cookie.  Fill the well with the crumbly topping.  Overflowing is ok!  Bake for 12 minutes.
