    These turned out so well! My partner and I love them! We made the cream cheese icing but we added more cream cheese as we found it wasn’t cream cheesy enough. And the dough was amazing! Not too dry not to wet. Will def make again!

    Perfec! I made the recipe that came with the bread machine, but these were so much lighter I don’t like a heavy cinnamon roll, these are great. Made then twice now

    These were delicious! Probably a little too heavy on the cinnamon in the filling. I think I'll do 3Tbls next time instead of the 3 1/2 I did this time. Also, the filling was very heavy in the center of the rolls (as some would fall out from the outside portions when cutting and moving them).

    Followed the recipe and they are amazing! Just be sure your yeast is fresh and bloom it in the water with about half the sugar before adding to the other wet ingredients then add rest of sugar and the flour. Did mine In my kitchen aide mixer.

    OMG! First let me say that I’m not a baker, I’m a cook. I tried another recipe twice yesterday and threw the dough out both times. Not sure why I’m so determined to make cinnamom rolls but this seems to be a quest that has brought me to this recipe. I tied to do the bread machine recipe and found out 1hr and 20 minutes into the process that my machine was broke and nothing was being combined so I dumped everything into my mixer. I did everything for the recipe called me to do and it worked out perfect! The one thing I did to help my dough rise was to turn my ove onto the lowest setting (170 degrees) let it warm and turned it off and put my bowl of dough in and it rose faster. (That was another internet search.) Thanks!

    Easy to make. Not a quick recipe but definitely worth the wait.

    Took a long time, next time I am going to put it in the fridge overnight to cut down on the time in the morning. I think I overcooked them a bit, but very tasty! Will definitely make again

    Love this recipe. I use a stand mixer for all the hard work. Thank you for providing instructions for stand mixers. I also added orange zest to the dough and lemon zest to the icing, and whoa! Really amps the flavor. I love!

    The rise was absolutely beautiful and the rolls were delicious. Cinnamon filling with butter sugar and almonds was VERY messy but it turned out for the best. You don’t need nearly as much icing as there is in the picture. I’ll just say that these cinnamon rolls won me my prize for best dessert in a family cooking competition lol :)

    Wonderful recipe and it was my very first time making cinnamon rolls! I cut the sugar in frosting by half (we try to keep it low sugar in my house when we can), but everything else was absolutely incredibly delicious as stated! I wish I could bake and eat these everyday.

    Great dough recipe. However we didn’t care for the lemon flavor in the icing.

    This particular recipe is so easy tasty and so smooth with the direction. I have not baked since quarantine started but as soon as I got Yummly the app I started baking again and especially because I love cinnamon rolls I got the best recipe out of any recipe I found on Google.
