Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies

If you are worried about sugar, fat and calories...this recipe is not for you!  I came across this recipe on a blog called Picky Palate.  Her recipe is NOT GF, but I knew I could convert it to be GF.  They were a hit!

4 C GF flour
1 1/2 C sugar
1 C Shortening
1 C Sour Cream
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Vanilla
 2 Eggs
2 tsp Xanthan Gum

Brown Sugar
Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream sugar, shortening, sour cream and eggs.  Add remaining ingredients until well blended.  Chill for at least one hour.  Divide dough into three portions.  Roll out first one on a floured surface. 

For the filling:
Lightly spread some butter over dough and then sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Roll the dough and then cut or slice through (I used dental floss).  Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with remaining dough.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from baking sheet to a cooking rack and frost with cream cheese frosting.
