    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 :)

    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.

    I did half a batch and found the dough a bit stiff I did really like the filling though as well as the details in the instructions.

    Doubled the recipe and followed instructions exactly as written. The dough wasn't sweet enough and was too firm. The frosting was great and ended up redeeming the lackluster rolls. Next time I'll use my usual bread recipe and just follow the rest of the recipe to finish.

    Awesome recipe! I personally had a little extra of the cinnamon sugar mix but it could be that I did not roll the dough thin enough.

    This recipe was super easy to follow. My yeast didn't exactly proof the way the direction said it would, but the cinnamon rolls turned out DELICIOUS anyways.
