These were very tasty! I modified the recipe, which is why I give it 3 stars as written. I added about 1/3 cup of sugar (white granulated) and a few generous shakes of cinnamon and a dash of ground cloves into the dough itself. Without it, I can understand why some reviewers simply called them biscuits. I also added some icing on top (made of powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract), which really finished it off. I had a really difficult time rolling the dough into a log. It didn't really "roll", more like "folded". And as it folded, it pushed all my gooey deliciousness out. I don't know if it's just me (this is my first time making cinnamon rolls), so maybe I just need practice on that part? But I was sad that a lot of my cinnamon sugar mixture simply oozed out when I was trying to roll it up. Because my roll was so flat, I also had to kind of fold them in half again as I put them on the pan. Regardless, after rising, they still looked decent (I left them rise for over an hour) and in the end, they still tasted good (great, with the icing on top). It only took about 15 minutes to cook, and even then I could have taken them out 1 or 2 minutes earlier. Will make again!
