"Absolutely the best cinnamon rolls, ever. So good, you can't NOT make them, let alone, stop eating them. A little hard work but totally worth it in the end. Substitute walnuts or raisins for pecans if you desire. Very good right out of the oven, or right out of the fridge, place a pat of butter on top and microwave for 20 seconds!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is a good recipe for cinnamon rolls. I left out the pecans and maple extract, because I didn't have any, and I accidentally rolled the dough the wrong way, so I came out with 10 giant rolls, but I just cut them in half to serve. :) The bread part came out fluffy, and the taste was sweet, but not too sweet. My glaze was too thick to drizzle, but (since I didn't have a lot of time to continue adding butter), I just smeared it thinly with a spoon, and it melted a bit. I would use this recipe again.
I followed this recipe step by step and they came out horrible the dough was hard and never really raised Im upset i wasted so much butter and cinnamon I do not recommend this recipe. even the frosting was wack. I had to add milk to thin it out..I give this a -1 rateing
These were amazing! Mine came out VERY large, but they tasted fabulouse.
Bella, I'm betting your yeast was bad. There is no way this recipe could produce anything but terrific cinnamon rolls!
I just made this - my first cinnamon rolls ever. I adjusted the amounts for 9 servings, which made one spring form (10 inches I think?) full. They were just excellent! I used brown sugar and no nuts, but I don't think it would have been different with white sugar. Everybody loved them. I didn't use the glaze, but "The Perfect Cinnamon Roll Icing" recipe (also cut down to 9 servings). I don't live in the U.S., so I thought cinnamon rolls were too advanced or just not doable with good results, but these are fantastic. THANK YOU so much for sharing the recipe!
I LOVE this recipe, I made it last year as a cinnamon roll newbie and it came out perfect!
I've made these several times now and they are amazing. Super easy to make and fun to share with my co-workers and family. Used a different icing recipe because I wanted to use a cream cheese icing but otherwise these are great!
