About this recipe: These are the easiest, most incredible cinnamon pull aparts you will ever have. We make them once a year on Christmas morning! You may adjust the amount of cinnamon to suit your taste.
I made them with the kids...lots of fun! But, the recipe directions are way off. Less cinnamon & sugar. More butter. Less cooking time (thirty minutes). And a bigger pan. But all & all, a great easy recipe!! - 29 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The other reviewers were dead on...this needs more butter! Go ahead and use the same amount of cinnamon and sugar. It is not necessary to actually use the entire mixture, but you need to have enough butter so that when you heat the mixture it makes a smooth syrup instead of a grainy sludge. With the current amount, when the dish cools it caramelizes and is nearly impossible to get out of the pan. 45 minutes is too long, but 15 minutes is too short. I wound up having to check the under layers to see if they were done every five minutes. All that aside, they taste wonderful! - 08 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were good. I baked them in a muffin cup so that each person would get their own individual serving. I didn't have to bake them the entire time...about 17 minutes. They were great. I also reduced the amount of suger a little bit...wanted more of a cream cheese taste. Thanks for the post. - 03 Jul 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
