    Preparation

    1
    Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. For the cinnamon swirl, microwave butter in small microwave-safe bowl on HIGH 30 to 45 seconds or until melted. Stir in ½ cup brown sugar and cinnamon with fork until completely smooth; set aside.
    2
    For cookies, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl; set aside.
    3
    Beat shortening, remaining 1 cup brown sugar, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in large mixing bowl with electric mixer on high 3 to 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Alternatively add flour mixture and milk, beating on medium until well combined.
    4
    Drop dough in 20 mounds 3 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets. Slightly press to flatten tops. Stir cinnamon mixture. Place mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a small round-shape piping tip. Pipe a spiral shape on top of each dough mound, beginning at the center. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until centers are set. Cool completely on cookie sheets on wire racks.
    5
    For filling, beat cream cheese and butter in large mixing bowl with electric mixer on high until smooth. Add powdered sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon; beat until creamy.
    6
    Remove cookies from parchment paper. Spoon frosting on flat sides of 10 cookies. Top with remaining cookies, flat sides down. Store covered in refrigerator up to 2 days.
