These are really so good! I love it! The taste is comparable to fancy restaurants without having to pay so much for it. The dough's soft and delectable, I ate 2 in one sitting while having amaretto coffee with it. My surface wasn't lightly floured though, I added also about 1/2 cup flour so I can work with it. Keeper! Thank you, PattikayinLA!

Yummy breakfast this morning! Great and easy way to make breakfast! This was a LOT easier than making yeast cinnamon rolls! I did add a little vanilla to the frosting. Thanks for the yummy recipe! Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #14!

These were really yummy, but be careful with the amount of cream. I used fat-free 1/2 an 1/2 and I added all of it at once and had to add about 1/2 c more flour to make my dough stiff. But they turned out great and were really easy after I got the dough right.
