    I would definitely recommend making it again. it tastes very good, and it is easy to make, it just takes a while to set. Very good recipie.
    I’m just starting out learning how to bake and wasn’t sure if I could make mine as nice looking as the picture, but they turned out BEAUTIFULLY. Really easy to make and lots of fun. Delicious as well!

    Was ABSOLUTELY DELISH i used only a half cup of sugar, a bit more cinnamon and when baking baked for at least 5 more minutes alternating between gas marks 4 and 6, as was not too sure which one to use. Tastes WAY better the morning after, was an absolute hit

    Soo easy and fun to make!! The dough was perfect and ended up rolling with the cinnamon just perfectly! :) Loved the glaze as well even though it kind of ruined the look of the cookies. I used 2 tsp instead of 3. Also reduced the sugar in the dough to 1/2 cup and it was really good! I recommend freezing the dough overnight rather than only 30 minutes, though.

    Came out great! i did 10 minutes on one side then 5 on the other just to make sure they’re baked. I did it with greek vanilla yogurt (instead of egg) since i didn’t have eggs but still came out great!! Definitely recommend (: I also did double the filling due to earlier comments.
    the salt was too much!

    These came out amazing. It took me a few tries to get them perfect because my dough kept crumbling, but I would highly recommend these to everyone

    These turned out so great! The only reason for four stars instead of five was because they were a bit dry after a day. Still very tasty though, and I would make again!

    Substituted with GF flour and used a piping bag instead of a spoon for the drizzle. Pretty delicious

    They turned out very good, and I love making these cookies for church occasions or little parties hosted at the house. The only problem I have with the cookies sometimes is that it won’t stayed rolled up or the cinnamon coating won’t say together when rolling it up the the dough.

    They turned out amazing! They’re a little weird looking but I think that’s because I don’t have an electric hand mixer.

    A little flour-y to taste maybe a few more seasonings in the dough itself but all in all it is amazing!
