    Soo easy and fun to make!! The dough was perfect and ended up rolling with the cinnamon just perfectly! :) Loved the glaze as well even though it kind of ruined the look of the cookies. I used 2 tsp instead of 3. Also reduced the sugar in the dough to 1/2 cup and it was really good! I recommend freezing the dough overnight rather than only 30 minutes, though.

    Came out great! i did 10 minutes on one side then 5 on the other just to make sure they’re baked. I did it with greek vanilla yogurt (instead of egg) since i didn’t have eggs but still came out great!! Definitely recommend (: I also did double the filling due to earlier comments.

    These came out amazing. It took me a few tries to get them perfect because my dough kept crumbling, but I would highly recommend these to everyone

    These turned out so great! The only reason for four stars instead of five was because they were a bit dry after a day. Still very tasty though, and I would make again!

    Substituted with GF flour and used a piping bag instead of a spoon for the drizzle. Pretty delicious

    They turned out very good, and I love making these cookies for church occasions or little parties hosted at the house. The only problem I have with the cookies sometimes is that it won’t stayed rolled up or the cinnamon coating won’t say together when rolling it up the the dough.

    they are good but could have a stronger cinnamon flavor. one reviewer said they were flourey but honestly they probably just put too much flour on it when they were rolling it because i never got that.

    They turned out amazing! They’re a little weird looking but I think that’s because I don’t have an electric hand mixer.

    A little flour-y to taste maybe a few more seasonings in the dough itself but all in all it is amazing!

    Don't know why, did recipe percisely and dough was very crumbly and dry. I added extra butter and ended up just rolling them into balls and popping them in the oven. They tasted fine either way.

    Very good cookie. I got 24 cookies in this recipe that says 12 servings. Must be 2 cookies in a serving. I did add 1/4 C of sour cream after the addition of the egg and vanilla to the sugar cookie dough. I used 1/2 tsp salt (divided) because I had salted butter, and I increased the flour by just a few tablespoons because of the addition of sour cream. It definitely looked and tasted “cinnamon rolly”. I will make this again. Thank you for this cute and tasty cookie recipe!
