"Made these according to recipe--way too sweet. Next time I'll cut back on sugar and add a touch more cinnamon. Also, like a review I read, might add raisins or nuts. The major problem I had is I baked them for the time given and they were very brown on outside but almost raw on inside. Next time might try 350 degrees and adjust time according to how they are baking."

"WOW!! These was so easy to make. I did use regular sugar instead of sugar substitute because I didn't have any, and they turned out great. I will make these more often."

"Morning Cinnamon Rolls were quick and easy to assemble, and they were very tasty. I usually don't care for sugar substitutes, but it worked well in this recipe. I'll definitely be making these little cinnamon gems again! -- Kristine Chayes, Smithtown, N.Y."
