This recipie came out a little dense for my taste but very tasty with a glass of milk. I made this because I was out of eggs and butter... that's probably the only time I'd make it again. Read More

These came out tasting like the orange cinnamon rolls my mom makes on Christmas morning. Deeeeelicious! I absolutely loved the cinnamon roll texture and the frosting is to die for! I used a spoonful of orange juice concentrate (probably a tiny bit more than a tablespoon). If you are not a big frosting eater you could probably cut the frosting recipe in half although I wouldn't recommend it because it's so good you'll want to pile it on. Be aware though that any leftover frosting won't keep in the fridge. The only changes I made were no nuts because my husband is allergic and I added 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. Oh and don't be afraid if the dough seems stiff. I actually broke a spatula in half stirring it. My recipe made 24 TB size cookies. Read More

I'm shocked at the negative reviews! Reading them I went in not expecting much but these are DELICIOUS! They are quite dense but they are very soft and incredibly moist. If you're thinking about trying them do it! I was not disappointed. Read More

I was not impressed. They didn't have enough flavor and were not moist but instead were a bit tough and chewy. Not what I expected at all. The only thing that saved them was the icing which turned out too runny. Read More

great recipe - nice texture not too dense and all that without eggs and fat except for the little from the walnuts. I added cinnamon and home-made pumpkin puree that I happened to have and because I ran out of cream cheese I used some leftover chocolate-mocha icing from allrecipes: they were the total hit with my bookclub ladies! Definitely a regular item for me now. Read More

I don't enjoy giving a negative review but these muffins didn't go over well. They were dry small and not loved by the fam. My husband who will eat just about anything didn't touch these. Chalk this one up to experience. Read More

Very good satisfied sweet tooth! They are more dense than a cupcake or muffin but did not mind. Added pumpkin pie seasonings and substituted Orange glaze with Cream Cheese Frosting II on here tasted much like pumpkin roll! Read More
