My family loves loves homemade cinnamon rolls so when I fixed these they were a big hit with everyone!

These are good. I probably would not use the icing next time, as I think they are sweet enough without it.

Very good cookie. Next time I will roll out the dough a little thinner to get more of a roll.

Very good cookies, but not particularly easy to make

Recipe needs rewriting. Make sure you add flour slowly, you may not need it all. Chocolate baker bar, ha. Awful. What a waste! Whoever wrote this recipe is probably receiving money or items from bakers chocolate! I threw everything away after the clumping. Roll logs about 8 inches as they look much better. Overall, the cookie itself is tasty but needs tweaking. Chocolate needs revisited. Maybe just a simple doughnut glaze would be perfect. Whoever wrote this should reimburse for all the wasted chocolate bars. At least 2$ each. Insanely upset at the chocolate at this very moment. Infact, don't add the chocolate and honey drizzle at all. It's not needed. Hence, i am actually writing a review. You guys wait until i start writing the recipes. You'll be safe then.

Have had good luck rolling the cookies and they taste great. But putting honey in white chocolate makes it very strange. The first time, I put the tsp of honey in and ended up using about 1/4 cup before it would melt. The second time, I melted the chocolate first and added the honey and it solidified. I'm sure there's a food science reason. I'll just use melted white chocolate next time.

I had no problems with the dough except I should have done a test cookie. I'm high altitude (above 3000 feet) and the cookies really spread. I should have added another 1/4 cup flour like I do for cakes, etc.

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.
