Cinnamon Cookie Dough:

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (add more if desired)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 ¼ cups flour

Streusel Topping:

  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

Icing (optional):

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • Splash of vanilla

Baking Instructions


  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine the butter, vegetable oil, and brown sugar in a bowl, mix until smooth.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix again.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Set aside and begin streusel.


  • Add all of your streusel ingredients to a bowl.
  • Mix until the mixture sticks together, but still crumbles in your hand (I recommend mixing with your hand or a spoon).

Putting it all together:

  • Roll dough into medium-sized balls and place on nonstick or greased baking sheet.
  • Using a spoon or your fingers make an indent in the center of each cookie.
  • Sprinkle the desired amount of streusel on the cookie, making sure it stays on the cookie.
  • Place cookies in the oven for 12-15 minutes, checking them periodically and adjusting the time if needed. 


  • While cookies are in the oven, begin preparing the icing.
  • Combine the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk until smooth and runny (add more milk or powdered sugar to reach desired consistency).
  • After the cookies have cooled slightly, drizzle the icing over the top.
