Bad recipe.

Dough is wet and filling causes the dough to slip apart. (See other comments as well)
Also no need for water sugar or icing.

I recommend not using this - go elsewhere.

Everything leaked out in the oven for me too. If I make them again, might try baking them in a muffin tin like in the photo.

So crumbly and bland. I would call these scones rather than scrolls.

Really nice! Everybody loved them!
The second time I made them I rolled out the dough evn thinner / bigger and doubled the cinnamon for the filling because I love cinnamon so much --- YUMMYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!
I also love that you dont need any yeast!

This was delicious
The dough was nice and fluffy and I added a hint of cocoa to the cinnamon mix, with and without the cocoa was scrumptious and there was no mess after I was done!
Quick ,easy and simple
Would make this again
