  • While the cookies are cooling, make the frosting, by whipping the butter, cream cheese and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time.
  • Add milk a tsp at a time until you've reached your desired consistency, if needed.
  • Add the frosting to a gallon sized zip top bag, cut the corner of the bag and use it to pipe the frosting onto the warm cookies in a spiral.
  • Sprinkle some extra cinnamon and sugar on top- serve warm!
