I like this Better Than Anything Cinnamon Pull Aparts because of the idea of pulling the cinnamon pieces apart to eat them. You can bake the whole thing and just place it on the table and call everyone to partake of it. It's fun. Great with coffee.

I love bread and my boyfriend loves cinnamon-flavored desserts. This recipe is perfect for us!

Yum, this looks great!

no yeast bread sticks

Just curious....Can these be prepared in advance and refrigerated or frozen for a day or so?

Great question! You can ask the blogger directly by commenting on her blog.

Easier version (and just as good): Buy some Rhodes frozen bread. Thaw it. Go to Step 5.

Thank you all for your feedback. To ensure the quality of this recipe, Sherron from Simply Gourmet made these Cinnamon Pull-Aparts for a second time and they came out great!

Wow, I do not think I have ever seen so many negatives about a recipe before. Sure am glad I checked them. Thanks to everyone who took the time to send one in. Saved me alot of time, money and trouble.

The are terrible. I thought they looked easy and good so I didn't read the comments because often I don't agree or am tired of cooks asking dumb

Worse recipe I have ever tried. The ingredients, are off and you will have to improvise to even get the batter to mix. Dough has no taste, only in the sugar/cinnamon, gives it any flavor at all. Sorry I wasted the eggs, flour, and sugar, etc. Please do not waste your time.

Save time: buy 4 packages of refrigerated dough for plain biscuits (buttermilk or plain, doesn't matter, 8 to a package), open the tubes of dough, cut each biscuit into quarters. Using half a dozen at a time, shake the dough quarters in a plastic bag with your cinnamon & sugar mix. I use a 13 x 9 pan, melt a few tbsp of butter in the bottom. I layer the pan with the coated quarters of dough, leave room for expansion. It's a lumpy sight: the quarters will retain a triangular shape for the most part. I drizzle a little melted butter over the dough and sprinkle some extra cinnamon-sugar mix across the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes... watch for golden brown top, and poke with a toothpick so you don't have uncooked dough in the middle. You can pull these apart, in any size pieces! No mess, no stress. A wee bit time-consuming cutting the biscuits and coating them, but my kids loved to help with that. If you want cram cheese frosting, go for it, but with each piece coated in cinnamon & sugar, I've never needed frosting.

Horrible recipe. 8 cups of flour is a dough mess, have to add at least another cup flour to even try and work with, then another half cup on hands to roll. Why put pan in oven @400 when you are going to let the dough rest for 30 minutes. Ovens will come to temperature and heat the pan in 15 minutes. Not to mention all the bad recipe instructions. The most horrible taste, I had to throw them out for the birds, there is not enough cream cheese frosting to make these taste good. Sorry I lost the flour, eggs, and yeast for this recipe. Please do not try it. Thanks Debbie

Thank you gypsyrose , saved me alot of money and time
