Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 30 cookies (about)
2 - 3
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Cream butter and sugars together in bowl of stand mixer (or with hand mixer). Scrape sides of bowl and add coconut cream and applesauce; beat until well combined. Add vanilla, soda, and salt. Add flour one cup at a time and beat after each addition but just until combined. (If you are using a hand mixer you may have to hand stir the last cup of flour into the dough.)
Divide dough into halves and roll one half out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle roughly 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle very generously with cinnamon and spread to cover every spot. Roll dough up longways into a large snake shape and use a sharp knife to slice cookies of your desired size. Place each cookie flat on a baking sheet lined with parchment or silpads, about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until edges start to turn golden brown (or right before for doughy cookies). Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack.
Whisk milk and powdered sugar in a small bowl until smooth then add salt and vanilla and drizzle over cooled cookies.
