I took these to a Thanksgiving breakfast and they were devoured I will have to make them again so I can have more than one. I did everything but bake them the night before and they were still great I was afraid they wouldn't do well sitting in the refrigerator all night but they were wonderful. Use real maple syrup I doubt the faux-maple flavored syrups would be good. Read More

Was looking for something quick with no time for cinnamon rolls waiting for yeast to rise and this was it. Had no walnuts on hand so only used the regular pancake syrup on hand mixed with some melted butter with the brown sugar. Still turned out excellent with rave reviews from the family. Thanks for the great recipe have added it to my favorites. Read More

I think the amount of milk needed may need to be adjusted depending on what type of baking mix you are using. Next time I think I will add bit by bit until the dough is moist. Other than that the taste is good and the recipe is easy to follow! Read More

This was NOT fool proof. My dough was too sticky and fell apart when i went to twist it. Cream cheese went everywhere. In the end I just threw it all in the pan thinking at least it would taste good. It crumbled apart after I baked it and tasted too sugary sweet for me. Read More

This is a really creative recipe! I like the idea of it but I didn't love the end result. It definitely had that distinctive baking mix flavor for me. My husband didn't taste that but he thought they were too sweet. So neither of us particulary loved this. The only change I made was to use sliced almonds instead of the walnuts. Thanks:) Read More

These were good but they really spread so they were sticking to each other but I was still able to cut them apart. My husband really loved them. My co-worker called them Excellent and said it's good with coffee and another one asked for the recipe. My kids liked it without nuts but the nuts really did add more flavor to it. Use it if you have it. I just wish the nuts stuck to them but maybe I should chop the nuts a little finer or something. I did flip them over right away but you have to pick up the nuts and get them back on before it hardens. My daughter brought these to school and we were hoping she'd take home the leftovers but she didn't bring any home. They are fragile if the length is too long they will break in half because of the twists. The cream cheese mixture tastes just like the frosting my mom uses on her carrot cake. Yummy. It is really sweet because of the maple syrup on the bottom but the maple syrup makes the bottom crunchy. Read More
