    Unfortunately it was a flop. Rolls were so sweet it made them unedible! I feel like they would’ve been way too sweet even if I added half amount of sugar that is mentioned in the recipe.

    The first time they were a flop. But the second time they turned out amazing. This is a great recipe for cinnamon rolls.

    Cinnabon who? My mom asked me to save this recipe so she could have them again (that’s HUGE from her). 11/10 would recommend, you won’t regret it. I’ll also add that I used copious amounts of butter to grease the pan/butter the dough and it made the rolls super moist and yummy when they came out of the oven

    So easy and delicious! I had fresh yeast left over from Easter baking and substituted just over an ounce of fresh yeast for the dried and they rose perfectly. I made the mistake of baking them in a smaller pan than suggested and they were too close together and didn't bake evenly so learned my lesson. The family agrees it is a new 'got to' recipe.

    These were awesome! I subbed regular frosting for the cream cheese frosting and they were a hit!

    It literally came out as amazing as Cinnabon rolls! I used less sugar on icing to my taste but everything was perfect and my husband also asked ‘how’d you make it just like Cinnabon??!!!’ Thank you!!!

    Very tasty. Will make again but if you make in a 13’x9’ pan plan on baking for a longer time I ended up baking for 18 mins
