These were nice fresh from the oven. Not sure that I'd like them so much reheated. They didn't have quite as much flavor as I expected - seemed to need a little bit more of something. I accidentally mixed the cinnamon in because it was right up there with the flour on the ingredients list. Oops! Oh well. The more cinnamon the better! I went ahead and sprinkled the cinnamon and sugar on the top too - although I didn't measure or anything. I will also say that these were super simple to put together and were ready in no time! That's always a plus!
Oh my, but these are yummy little devils! I just popped down three of them warm from the oven. With the light dusting of cinnamon & sugar, they would accompany a meal quite well. If you sprinkled the dough with a more generous amount before rolling them up, they would make a great breakfast pastry. I made these in with my Kitchen Aid & they were very easy to put together. I would recommend lightly flouring your surface when rolling out the dough for ease of handling. Do try these, you won't be sorry.
