Reviews for Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies

"A gigantic mess of a dough! Stuck to everything - I tried chilling in the fridge, rolling between wax paper, freezing - nothing worked! Ended up putting all back in the mixer, with half the cinnamon sugar mixture, mixing it together and spooning it onto cookie sheets. Tastes good though! A typical snickerdoodle recipe will get you better results."
"The dough came out perfectly! I can't help but remain confused as to how some felt this dough was tricky to work with. They rolled perfectly and taste great! However, I did without the white chocolate since that will DEFINITELY make them too sweet to eat."
"These were wonderful. Adding to the list of must do each year. I used white disks and druzxled. The dough is hard to roll but not impossible to do."
"I made these cookies recently, however I also found the dough was sticky. I used a silicone baking mat and sprinkled the cinnamon sugar on the mat and rolled out the logs in the sugar. This worked extremely well and made it easy to roll up the cookies. I had to use a spatula to move the cookies onto the baking sheet, but they turned out great. I also skipped the white chocolate and just used a confectioners sugar glaze. Tastes just like a cinnamon roll."
"This recipe looks wonderful in the picture and my son loves cinnamon rolls and told me I needed to find a cinnamon roll cookie recipe. And look what you have on your website. I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED. I am a Baker!! The directions are awful. FIRST, there is no way to roll these in a rope, then the sugar, then a spiral without the cookie breaking and looking awful. On my last tray, I rolled a rope, then a spiral and then coated in sugar-they did not break this way. I found the cookie had a funny aftertaste, but my son liked them. The white chocolate drizzle was too much and a disaster as well. I think if you want a glaze on these, maybe a light sugar or cream cheese glaze. I wish I would have read the reviews prior to making these as I see others had the same problems I did. Can anyone tell me what Christmas tastes like????"
