i didn't have a problem rolling them up. I use a clean sheet sprinkled with flour for all my roll outs. these are so cute and you do get around 70 something. some i glazed plain and some i sprinkled ground up walnuts
These were such a booger to roll up - the dough is pretty soft - that I REALLY didn't want to like these, but....we all love them! (So I guess I'm going to have to learn to deal with the rolling issue :) These taste exactly like little cinnamon rolls. They don't even need icing, especially warm and straight out of the oven, but it just makes them even better. Somehow I got exactly 72 cookies (which rarely happens and I bake often) so I was able to send a few dozen to my out-of-town son and share with an elderly neighbor. I'm going to freeze the remaining cookies for the holidays so we'll see how that works. These are a soft cookie - they remind me of my Mom's sour cream cookies that she made every Christmas, same flavors. Delicious! They get a 5 star rating for flavor and a 3 for the rolling up thing, so a 4 star over all. (While they are difficult to roll out and roll up, the eases of slicing and baking the next day makes up for that.)
these are pretty good for a quick cinn roll type but it doesnt say if they are suppose to be on the soft side or crunchy ,mine are on the softer side i figured when they slid off the pan they were done. i got 52 ,not 6 doz. i used the rest of the cream cheez and 1/2 cup butter and vanilla for frosting that way the cream cheez dosen't go to waste.would i make again ? I will see after the party what everyone thinks about them,for myself I still like the big cinn roll.
