My two year old and 9 1/2 month old loved them. My husband and I thought they were OK but definitely like yeast cinnamon rolls better. They're OK in a pinch and kids definitely like them. Read More

This is a quick Cinnamon Bun recipe. No they are not as good as ones made completely from scratch with yeast but they are much faster when you don't have time. I didn't really change anything just added some nuts to the rolls. I will probably make again when I don't have time to make then from scratch. Read More

this is good for a quick roll- will make changes to suit my taste i.e. more sugar (brown) in mix some nutmeg etc. but not a bad recipe! Good for making dinner rolls w/butter and parmesan cheese mixed in (deleting the sugars and adding some spices like oregano and garlic) Read More

These were interesting. The dough wasn't easy to cut and so the rolls lost their "roll" look a little but it's how they taste not how they look. After fifteen minutes I took them out and they were way too mushy so I cut between them and put them back in for a little while longer and they were fine. Just make SURE you use confectioners sugar and not regular sugar because like me you will have made a big mistake.;) Read More

These are really good - but it's true you should not make them expecting a yeast style cinnamon bun. They are like a cinnamon biscuit. I used a little less baking mix in the mixture and was generous with baking mix in the roll out. I also used more cinnamon then called for and more sugar - I put a thick coat of it on top of the butter and then dusted the tops before baking. Additionally two minutes before I took the buns out of the oven I brushed them with butter. The outer part of the roll was more biscuit like - but the centers were moist and delicious. I also needed more milk for the icing - maybe an 1/8 of a cup or so. Read More
