"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 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.
