I wanted to make cinnamon rolls this morning and didn't have time for yeast, so I gave these a try. They turned out great and were much appreciated by our junior high Sunday School class. I didn't have any cream cheese, so I used Kittencal's Really Easy and Good Creamy White Glaze, which topped them off nicely. Thanks for posting.
