    I used 21 g fresh yeast (per the internet). I noticed in the recipe on the website, it listed 200 g brown sugar, but on Yummly's site it said 145 g. Probably, when I make this again, I'll use Qrt g. Less is more. It was dripping everywhere. Also, as some reviewers mentioned, maybe baking about 30 minutes is better. They weren't burnt, but they were pretty brown. But the dough is lovely to work with, and the family enjoyed it very much.

    These were yummy 😋 my kids really enjoyed them. I did not do the over night, this a very simple recipe and I will make it again! You do not need all of the filling, and the cream cheese icing was a nice touch . I added chopped pecans to the bottom of the pan after I buttered it and just before I put the sliced rolls into the pan. Enjoy!!

    35 min is too long , my rolls became brown on the outside :( The dough didn’t rise much when forming a ball but it did overnight after shaping up the rolls individually. But the taste is good :)

    Yum! I buttered the baking dish,; I only used 1 cup sugar in the frosting and that was plenty; and will bake them for 30 min next time...Thank you for the easy to follow recipe! This may become my go to holiday brunch treat.

    This recipe was awesome. I made these on a whim - no big event or holiday brunch - and I'm so glad I did. I microwaved the milk (half cream, half 2% milk) for 90 secs or so to heat it rather than using the stovetop method. I used my stand mixer with the dough hook attachment for five minutes as directed, rather than kneading the dough, before letting it rise and later dumping onto a floured surface for rolling. The dough was so soft and smooth when rolling, and the finished version had the same qualities. I didn't have cream cheese so I just made a simple white frosting. So, so good. Shared with a colleague and got rave reviews, too.

    Recipe was wonderful.. I made the dough in my bread machine using Bread machine yeast. Pillsbury has a Cinnamon icing so I used this instead of the Cream cheese icing.
