Iced Cinnamon Roll Cookies*** Updated

Food blogs sometimes steer me wrong - but not with this recipe. Oh my goodness, I love these cookies. They are great warm (just like the real thing). But, with icing on it tomorrow - these will be amazing! :) I love the dough and they made about 25 cookies - so not a huge batch! These are going to CG and the mancube for their work on a project for my office.
Just Baking (blog) gave me a winner tonight (slight modifications)

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup EACH sugar and light brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 cup bread flour (or you can use all regular flour, but bread flour gives something a good airy chew)
2 1/2 T milk
1 cup cinnamon chips (King Arthur baking or Hersheys if you can find them)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup raisins (cooked in boiling water for 10 minutes

Cream everything together up to the egg. Then mix the egg, then flours, then milk to make the dough a great consistency. Fold in the additives. Bake at 375 on a greased baking sheet for 11 minutes.
Ice with a mixture of 10x sugar and milk - serve!
***** Update: I actually like these w/o the icing better. But, to each her (or his) own! :) Warm them up though for about 5-10 seconds in the microwave or eat them right out of the oven!
