    This receipe is awesome. I will definitely make them again. Using a conventional oven, you might want to cut the bake time to 15 minutes tops.

    This is an outstanding recipe. However, if making in the morning, it is a time consuming recipe. I have made it up to step 10 as the recipe suggests, and then refrigerate overnight. I always manage to take my attention off of it while rising in the oven the next morning and they come out a little dry because of that. I have to be a bit more “diligent” at that point. As the instructions suggest “cooking times may vary greatly “. They are sooooo delicious!

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! Made these today, they were fantastic! I will definitely cut the cinnamon & sugar mixture in half next time. It was excessive waste when it was spilling out of the unbaked roll. We sprinkled on top before baking, but too much brown sugar to chew on. Ha! Aside from that, will absolutely make for friends and family regularly.

    Phenomenal cinnamon roll recipe! I’ll echo the others who said it is the best recipe they’ve tried. Perfectly soft. Only issue was that the icing was too dry, so I had to add a small amount of milk. I also had to double the rising times.

    Wow!! Best recipe I’ve tried for cinnamon rolls these will be my new recipe! Next time I would knead the dough a little longer and I did increase proofing time because my kitchen was a little cold. Other than that I followed the recipe to a T.

    Great, a little too much powdered sugar, so going to cut that down next time

    Yum!! These were so great. I actually cut the entire log and froze the rest between wax paper and placed in zip bags for future mornings.

    These were great! I do wish the recipe told me how many it made, but once I started cutting I figured out it was 12. There was a good amount of icing and the cinnamon sugar was perfect. I will definitely be making these again.

    Great recipe! My dough was still a bit sticky so I slowly added more flour. It took longer than an hour to rise. I added a bit more vanilla extract to the frosting, but other than that no changes. Really yummy.

    It turned out tasty and moist. So much better than the canned version. I really enjoyed making this recipe and it was gone in a day. It made 2 small square pans and wonderful icing.

    Excellent cinnamon rolls! Always try to make a recipe as written but I had to cheat and use cream in the dough. Turned out great. Thinking about selling these for 4.95 down by the road. Thanks for taking the trouble to research these.

    This recipe is a great starting point for Cinnabon rolls. However I would suggest some alterations to the recipe. The amount of sugar used in the filling is too much as a lot of it stays crystallized. Rather then using milk I used cream, it gave the dough a nicer chew and less dry. The cream cheese frosting is a perfect replication. I personally like more of the cheese taste so I used a little less sugar. All in all I would recommend it!
