    PaulaG's Note:

    These are not the ordinary cinnamon roll. These sweet rolls have a delicious blending of flavors and are filled with apricots, raisins and cashews. A wonderful weekend breakfast treat. Recipe was developed for RSC-Winter 2005.

      These were fantastic! I made them last night and warmed them for breakfast this morning. Simply delicious. I loved the addition of the apricot nectar in the glaze. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

      These were yummy! I made these exactly as directed and they worked out perfect. The apricot nectar glaze is superb and perfectly compliment these rolls. The only thing I changed was to use Baking Spice - Copycat Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus Mix instead of nutmeg. Thanks for posting!
