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.

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.

These are really good, maybe not quite as good as yeast cinnamon rolls but they are alot quicker when the craving hits for hot cinnamon rolls.

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)

this was simple and tasty. Mine tended to unroll tho while baking, any suggestions on how to stop that?

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. ;)
