Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

There is quite possibly no better aroma than a pan of these big, puffy rolls baking in the oven, fragrant with cinnamon, brown sugar and orange zest.

Disappointment
April 8, 2014
I've been waiting for a special occasion to make this for my family and it was so disappointing. I followed directions completely (didn't add additional flour). I'm a regular roll and bread baker. This dough turned out heavy and lacked flavor and the cinnamon orange filling didn't makeup for it. The combo of 400 degree oven and egg wash made the tops of my rolls a very dark brown (hard crusty) when there was still 10 minutes left. I hurried and covered with tin foil for for the rest of baking but it was too late. I wish I would have stuck to my normal recipe but the photo was to convincing, I had to try it. Once the frostings goes on it looks just like the photo but looks only get you so far.
Pros: Appearance
Cons: Texture, Taste

Good, but not Great
February 6, 2013
This was my first attempt at cinnamon rolls and I wasn't that impressed. I even made the recipe twice, tweaking it a bit on round two and it still didn't wow me.
I think the issue was in the bread, not the filling. It had a rather bland taste. I understand that the filling is supposed to deliver the majority of the flavour, but even when I increased the intensity and volume of the filling, it still wasn't fantastic.
The frosting is great. I won't be making this again.
Pros: Yield, Appearance
Cons: Taste, Unhealthy
