These were delicious. The dough was very easy to work with and they actually stayed moist and delicious the next day (amazing that there were any left). I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and my son doesn't like nuts, so left the pecans out (much to my dismay). I felt the apples were a bit too juicy once they cooled (though that may have been what made them still yummy the next day) so I baked the muffin tin on top of a cookie sheet to catch the drips - glad I did.

These were very moist and yummy, but quite a mess to make.

These looked good, but the only way you know for sure is to try them. Yes, this recipe can be a bit of a "pain" especially the assembly with topping pieces dropping off the sides and of course it's messy....probably too messy if you're a neat nick! What I was most curious about was the use of roughly 50% Whole Wheat flour in the dough. The result was outstanding, with a slightly heavier dough, full of flavor giving balance to the natural sweetness of the caramel, butter, sugar, golden raisins, apples and pecans. Did I actually read someone didn't think the finished product was sweet enough? I'd hate to see what my blood sugar count was after eating one! These are worth the mess and effort if you're looking for a sweet breakfast item that has great flavor as well as substance. Oh, yes, I'll try the cranberries in lieu of the raisins next time, thanks!

Time consuming and very messy but delicious!! So glad I read the first review about putting a cookie sheet under the muffin tin. My husband loved them!

When I saw these in the magazine, I thought they looked delicious. I had all the ingredients, so I made them this afternoon. They are good, but not great. I guess I was looking for a sweeter, sticky cinnamon type roll. It seemed that the dough was not quite sweet enough for my taste. I definitely agree with the other posters that a cookie sheet under the muffin pan is a must! I probably will not make them again, based on the amount of time they took to prepare.
