I made these last year for Thanksgiving and EVERYONE loved them!!!! They were very tasty and the delicious frosting was a great addition. I wasnt able to make them again because I lost this recipe but just lately found it again! These yumkins will definately be on my table this Thanksgiving!

This recipie came out a little dense for my taste, but very tasty with a glass of milk. I made this because I was out of eggs and butter... that's probably the only time I'd make it again.

I'm shocked at the negative reviews! Reading them, I went in not expecting much but these are DELICIOUS! They are quite dense but they are very soft and incredibly moist. If you're thinking about trying them, do it! I was not disappointed.

These came out tasting like the orange cinnamon rolls my mom makes on Christmas morning. Deeeeelicious! I absolutely loved the cinnamon roll texture, and the frosting is to die for! I used a spoonful of orange juice concentrate (probably a tiny bit more than a tablespoon). If you are not a big frosting eater you could probably cut the frosting recipe in half, although I wouldn't recommend it because it's so good you'll want to pile it on. Be aware though that any leftover frosting won't keep in the fridge. The only changes I made were no nuts because my husband is allergic, and I added 1 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice. Oh, and don't be afraid if the dough seems stiff. I actually broke a spatula in half stirring it. My recipe made 24 TB size cookies.

I was not impressed. They didn't have enough flavor and were not moist, but instead were a bit tough and chewy. Not what I expected at all. The only thing that saved them was the icing which turned out too runny.

Very good, satisfied sweet tooth! They are more dense than a cupcake or muffin, but did not mind. Added pumpkin pie seasonings, and substituted Orange glaze with Cream Cheese Frosting II on here, tasted much like pumpkin roll!

I don't enjoy giving a negative review but these muffins didn't go over well. They were dry, small and not loved by the fam. My husband who will eat just about anything didn't touch these. Chalk this one up to experience.
