    Delicious they were fun to make and turned out so yumm they disappeared really quickly off the plate. I’m going to make another batch tomorrow.

    Absolutely delicious! They turn out fluffy and yummy. In my opinion, there’s no need for the frosting.

    Important: use ACTIVE DRY yeast, not RapidRise/Instant!! The dough doesn’t rise with the RapidRise. After fixing that mistake (mixing in proofed Quick-Rise), these were the best cinnamon rolls we’ve ever tasted!

    Loved these cinnamon rolls. The frosting was a bit thin, so I wonder how to make it more substantial, but the flavors and textures were fantastic.

    This recipe took wayyyyy longer than expected and was a generally terrible experience. My dough took eight hours to rise (not sure if this recipe should actually specify quick-rise yeast), and thus it turned into a two day project and having to chill overnight resulted in less fluffy buns. BUT my partners loved them. One of them described it as resembling an old McDonald’s’ item. —> So, mixed bag. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Very easy to follow recipe; the pictures definitely came in handy! I believe I was able to make 22 or 24 (can't remember because they were gone within a couple days haha). I would add just a bit more cinnamon next time, but it's still a delicious recipe :)

    My dough didn't rise like it should've but STILL turned out delicious. I will definitely made these again.

    This was my first time making cinnamon rolls. They turned out great. I may add a bit more cinnamon next time. Keep a watch on them while baking, they can brown up very quickly.

    The recipe is great! It was my first time making cinnamon rolls from scratch and the instructions were laid out clear and easy to follow. Definitely keeping this one on my back pocket. We also used an egg wash before throwing in the oven, gave a nice golden brown on the outside with soft inside.

    They turned out amazing! This was my first time making them so I was very nervous, but everyone LOVES them.
