Reviewed Cinnamon Rolls

Mar 3, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

My daughter raved about these cinnamon rolls. I totally agree with her. I cut this recipe down to 1/3 for just my husband and me. I brushed the melted butter on the dough - easier/less messy. I used way less sugar. I really like the dough - very nice to work with and it has a great taste. I am going to try this recipe again, only using white who"

Dec 18, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I quite liked these cookies. The only trouble I had was in cooking the caramel. It was such a small amount that I had a hard time using my big candy thermometer. I finally got a cup of cold water and dropped in some of the hot mixture - it immediately got hard as a rock. I didn't feel like starting over so I just continued on, using all heavy "

I was expecting something a bit different but these are just like Mexican Wedding cookies which I think are just as good as Betty Crocker's recipe. Plus, I think making balls is a little easier than trying to make a crescent and the shape doesn't make them taste any better!"

I love fruitcake so I was anxious to try this recipe. I was a little disappointed in them but part of it may be my fault. I replaced 2/3s cup of regular flour with white whole wheat flour and that may have been what made the cookies dry. Or else I baked them a little too long. I found it hard to tell when the cookies were done because they did"

I saw these cookies on Giada's show a few years ago and tried them this year when they were included in the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies. Both grocery stores I went to for the ricotta cheese didn't carry "whole milk" ricotta, only low fat and skim milk so I opted for the skim milk. I purchased two big lemons and used all the zest from each of th"

I made these for the first time and really liked them, even though I inadvertently bought butterscotch chips instead of peanut butter chips and didn't notice until the chips were already mixed in to the dough. I went ahead and made them anyway and I thought they were very good. I'm sure they will be even better when I use peanut butter chips! E"

I just made this cookie and it sounded wonderful but I would say it's only OK. I think what I would do with this recipe is incorporate the almond butter (freshly made) into the cookie dough and use almond extract in place of the vanilla and skip the filling. I think the cookies can stand on their own. Maybe it was the almond butter I purchased "
