I had high hopes for this recipe, but the texture of the finished product is not pleasant. I followed the directions exactly. I hoped that the brown sugar mixture would be gooey and sticky, but instead it was a curdled, disgusting mess. The bottoms were soggy and just unpleasant. My kitchen was cool, too.

I have changed this recipe just a bit by adding a sprinkle of cinnamon to the brown sugar and butter, and layering chopped pecans before placing the frozen  dough. This is our family's Christmas morning special  treat!

I still make them often for my grandchildren. they love them. But for the adults I sometimes add either pecans or raisons on the brown sugar mixture.

I love these rolls. I have been making them for about 10 years. Sometimes I add nuts or cinnamon with the brown sugar. So easy my 8 year old makes them and I put them in the oven in the morning. I always add more brown sugar and a bit more cream.
