These freeze very well. Let them thaw at room temperature and then refrigerate before serving as they are best served chilled. The flavor is good except I wasn't too fond of the cinnamon with the cream cheese layer.
Too much coffee flavor. The topping tasted better on a bagel.
I made these for my brother's birthday one year. I'll definitely be making these again!
These were easy to make and they turned out great but i just didnt like them. I didnt really taste the coffee and i didnt like the cinnamon in the middle layer, individually each layer was delicious, just not so good all together.
Yummy! These took a little time to make, but came out perfect. The flavors go together so well and the texture is nice and creamy. The cream cheese filling with cinnamon is amazing! I could eat that with a spoon. I'll be making it as a frosting in the future. I'm a little concerned I'm going to gain 10 lbs. after making these!
