The heavy cream turns into the most decadent, caramel sauce. Sweet, smooth and yummy. Don't skip that one, you'll miss out on something wonderful.

I've never heard of anyone pouring heavy cream over them before or after baking. That sounds very interesting, but I think I'd skip that step.

Excellent and so easy! Made cream cheese icing to drizzle over them after - yum!

I skipped the cream over the top and the nuts, but they were still great! If I were making them simply for myself and my husband I would have added the nuts, but since my kids were eating them too, I had to skip them. They hate nuts!

I made these last weekend and they were really good. I think the bit of cream made a big difference over other recipes. I didn't have frozen bread dough on hand, so I made a one pound batch of dough in the bread machine. Actually, I think I will do bread machine dough whenever I make these. It doesn't take any longer to go through the dough only cycle than it would to thaw the frozen dough.
