Reviews for Brunch Cinnamon Rolls

These were great! It's more like a coffee cake. I might separate them on a cookie sheet next time (or just serve more like it's one coffee cake); because it's a tender biscuit dough they didn't break apart into individual rolls like yeast cinnamon rolls and fell apart easily, but still delicious.
I didn't have cottage cheese so used sour cream instead and therefore didn't mess with using the food processor. I halved the nuts and might even reduce the brown sugar to 1/2 cup next time because they are plenty sweet with the icing too.
I admit I was a bit skeptical because of the cottage cheese and yogurt but the reviews convinced me to try it, and am I ever glad I did. They were fabulous. They were tender and scrumptious - my whole family loved them.
I have used quite a few cinammon roll recipes mostly all using yeast so wasnt sure about this one but decided to try it and i cant believe how amazing this recipe was the cookies were amazing and from now on i will only use this one so easy no fuss and delicious taste and texture :-)
These were really good, especially when I crumbled bacon in the filling and then on top of the maple glaze!
First of all , to those of you who rate before trying a recipe just ruin it for others. Second , these cinnamon buns were very tasty and easy to make. Third, I will make again. Thank you.
