Clone of a Cinnabon
As is this recipe is a solid 3, but the bones of the recipe are good. With a few changes it's easily a 5, hence my 4 star review. I make the dough portion of the recipe exactly as is except I substitute butter for the margarine.. We don't use margarine in our house and I find it really odd when a recipe calls for both butter and margarine considering most households choose one or the other and rarely use both. The filling is good but doesn't make near enough so I double it. These are cinnamon rolls, not health food. If they're going to be bad for you don't skimp on the good part. Now where I majorly differ from the recipe is I don't spread the butter and then sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar. Instead I combine them together then kind of massage the entire mixture onto the rolled dough. I find this keeps the filling from leaking out of the rolls better. It also more evenly distributes the flavor. Per the suggestion of other reviewers I bake the rolls for 20 minutes at 350 so they don't over brown. Finally, the icing... I accidentally misread the recipe the first time around and used a full 8oz package of cream cheese. I've never even seen 3oz packages at my grocery store. I do everything else as written then throw it all in the microwave for about 30 seconds to make it more liquidy. This makes more of a cinnabon textured paste/icing rather than the drizzly stuff pictured. Cinnabon glops their icing on, so I will continue to use a full 8oz package of cream cheese.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
These rolls are phenomenal. I first made these 2 years ago when I hosted my first Thanksgiving and they were the only thing we didn't have leftovers of. I now make this recipe frequently with regular dinners. What's great about it is that it doesn't have to be pigeon-holed into rolls. Don't have the time to go through the extra steps of making rolls? Just throw it in your bread machine on a regular bread cycle and it makes a delicious loaf of bread as well. I honestly have made it so many times that way my family forgot that it's actually a roll recipe. I don't change anything about the recipe at all.

Simple White Cake
I used this recipe for cake pops and it turned out perfect! I think it's stiffness was a plus! I did tweak the recipe a little, but it's simplicity and delicious taste gave me faith in my homemade cake making abilities again! Changes that I made: I doubled the recipe and added an extra 1/2 c milk (1/4 c for single recipe) I used a butter flavored Crisco stick and 2 Tbsp water in place of butter. Turned out great!
