    Amazing cinnamon rolls! Loved the icing as well! However, the dough is SUPER sticky. Be prepared to flour your surface very well if not it’ll continue to be sticky when you try to flatten the dough. Still worth the kitchen mess!

    Delicious. My family loved them. And even though the dough is sticky, I found it very forgiving. My rolling technique could definitely use improvement, but the cinnamon rolls still turned out beautiful.

    I did not know I was capable of making something so delicious!!! My go-to recipe for cinnamon rolls!!

    first time ever making cinnamon rolls and this recipe was DELICIOUS!! I used softened butter instead of melted butter for the filling and sprinkled some extra sugar mix plus a splash of milk on top of the rolls before baking to give them that caramel/gooey effect. next time I'll use whipping cream instead of milk

    They were amazing. I would use a larger bowl next time because they rose more than I anticipated. Shared them with friends and they loved them also

    Turned out really well. For a family of six, it made a large pan of 10 with two full aluminum trays leftover to freeze. The frosting was delicious as well. I spooned the leftover frosting in TBSP sized blobs onto waxed paper on a cookie tray and froze that as well. I’ll split it onto two bags to go with the extra cinnamon rolls for when I make them, so I have frosting as well. Easy enough and will be very nice to have a quick and easy option some morning.
    My first batch tanked but I’m a novice baker. I think I killed the yeast by adding it to the liquid while it was still too warm. Take 2 was a better effort. Took the advice of someone online who advised me to add the yeast when the liquid reaches the same temperature as a baby’s bath. With that advice, it “bubbled” and smelled like yeast within 5 minutes. Good tip. I rolled them both ways — yielding a pan w large rolls & a pan with smaller ones. Recipe yields enough to give some away as gifts. Would make these again when I have a “crowd”.

    Came out looking ugly but tasty, A bit too sweet for my taste and you make way more than 30 servings, unless a serving is 2 pieces per person! I made over 50 of them, i have a kitchen full of baked goods!

    I used a little too much yeast, make sure you double check! But it was still very good and I am making again right now with the correct amount

    VERY satisfied. Would definitely make again. I did add 1/2 a cup of raisins to each half and I think that complimented it very much.

    Though baking these rolls was not easy and fast but it was definitely worth it!! Terrific taste! Also would recommend to be cautious with the dough as it is a bit sticky.

    I need to roll it tighter but the taste is good!

    This is a wonderful recipe. I did divide the dough into 4 before I started to roll it out I also made smaller rolls and got 6 dozen cinnamon rolls. By far one of the best recipes I have tried. Will definitely make these again.

    These are the best cinnamon rolls known to man. Period. We’ve made them a few times and everyone (like 50 people) have agreed that they are amazing. I literally dream about these and am having these for my birthday instead of cake.

    Was a huge hit! Tastes good both warm and cold. The cream cheese frosting was really special. Easy to follow and would recommend to everyone.

    Great! It made about 6.5 square pans. I froze 5 of them for Christmas right after rolling and cutting. Hope they do as well from the freezer.
