These were good - but very very sweet. I think next time I will either not sprinkle more brown sugar on top or I will omit the icing. Was very qucik and easy to make!

These were awesome. I made the mistake of forgetting to put on the top glaze (they smelled so good that hands were grabbing them as soon as they came out of the oven) but since the brown sugar / cinnamon topping is sprinkled on top you can either glaze or not. I still have some extra cherries and 1 more package of chescent rolls so I may go ahead and make them again with the glaze this time. Thank you for a delicious weekend breakfast.

This was great. The only thing I did different...I took some of the remaining juice from the jar of cherries, mixed it with confectioner's sugar and a little lemon juice, and made icing that I put on top before baking the rolls. Great recipe!
