    Fantastic recipe. Safely makes two dozen. I’d recommend making a bit more filling (add 1/4 cup of white and brown sugar and another couple teaspoons of cinnamon), but it’s great as is. I subbed the frosting for directly sprinkling on powdered sugar, which worked better than expected.

    Was not a fan. Followed ever step exactly and the result was subpar at best. Wasn’t very sweet and tasted like white bread with cream cheese on top.

    I was looking for a recipe for sweet rolls that could rival those my grandmother used to make. Made these Christmas Eve to throw in on Christmas morning. They turned out fantastic and my son said they are a new Christmas tradition. I made half of the rolls with crushed pecans and half without. Delicious!

    It tasted okay but the proportions were totally off- way to much cinnamon and sugar and barely any icing. The dough also isn’t the best. Also takes too long overall and wouldn’t recommend this recipe unless you are totally bored out of your mind.

    Fabulous recipe! Makes more than plenty! I was worried about not kneading but the dough rose perfectly. I am very pleased with this recipe and will return back to it SOON! : )

    Amazing! You have to wait for the mixture to cool and rise so make it ahead of time.
