"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."

"These turned out to be an amazing surprise but i did alter it a little.I added a little extra cinnamon and a TB of crushed walnuts to the filling mix, made an extra half recipe of filling but only half of the icing amount. After spraying the pan I sprinkled a little of the brown sugar/cinnamon/nut mix over the bottom of the pan. After unrolling the crescents and sprinkling on most of the sugar mix, I added a TB of raisins, rolled it up and continued with recipe. The leftover sugar mix was sprinkled over the tops. When cooked wait a minute and then turn over onto a plate. You have a beautiful glazed finish which will only need the smallest drizzle of icing.OMG, I should have made 2 pans!"
