Tips and Tricks for Making This Cinnabon Cookies Recipe:
- Handling raw dough is not always easy. It would be sticking to your hands. The best way to avoid this is to rub a small amount of oil or butter to your hands so the dough won’t stick to them.
- If you do not have a non-stick baking pan, it is best to line your baking pan with a parchment paper. It is so much easier to take out your cinnabon cookies after baking.
- Before pouring the glaze to your cinnabon cookies, wait for a good ten to fifteen minutes. Cooling the cinnabon cookies will prevent the glaze from being too watery and the glaze adheres better to a cooler surface.
