These are easy and good. As far as the dough, I read various comments that it wasn't easy to work with, but what is not specified here is exactly what a soft dough is. I use my Kitchen Aid (it has a kneading attachment) and what you are looking for is as you gradually add that last cup of flour for it to start to pull away from the sides of the bowl and form a squishy soft ball. I needed to add MORE than one cup when I tried this recipe. Humidity etc affects dough so you can't really go by an ironclad amount of flour. Just add it gradually so it's only as little additional flour as needed. I made two 13x9 pans of these and forgot to use brown sugar as other's had recommended and they were still good. I made one pan right away and did put one pan in the fridge and made them the next NIGHT, not the following morning. I felt the first batch was better than the second. The icing is sweet and just the right amount for two pans but the next time I think I would prefer a cream cheese icing with it, but that's just my preference. Also, I did double the sugar/cinnamon as other's suggested and I would do so again. The only "tip" I would give here for that is the next time I will just use two small bowls with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in each rather than one big bowl. It just makes it easier to figure out how much to put on each log.
