Reviews for Mini Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Shared these with family & got rave reviews.
What a pain to make! The dough had to be chilled and then it was still sticky. I had to roll the log in the cinnamon and sugar and flour my hands to get the log roll. After all the fuss and muss they are nothing more than log-shaped snickerdoodles which, to be honest, tasted better. I never bothered with the white icing after all the trouble it took to make the cookies. Pass on this one
These were NOT good cookies. Normally cinnamon roll cookies have a cream cheese icing, but this white chocolate icing makes them have a weird taste. Had to use more flour than called for and the fork stuck to the dough so bad when putting on the print, I had to flour it too. Just not a good cookie to bake and waste all the ingredients over.
We loved these cookies, but I didn't add the icing and we thought they were great. Next time, I will add the icing.
I wasn't a huge fan of these, and neither was the family. The dough was very difficult to work with, I had to add an extra 1/4 cup of flour and keep the spirals very small. For the trouble I had making them, they weren't any better than some of my easier cinnamon cookie recipes. And the white chocolate on top made them a little too sweet for our taste.
