"These were very good. I left the cinnamon out of the cream cheese layer - just a personal preference. They are very rich, and very tasty! Thank you for sharing!!"
"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."
