      Can I please give these mor than just five stars?! They are indeed very tasty little (or maybe not so little) treats. They came together very quickly and easily and tasted oh so good. Nearly like one of my favourite pastries you can buy in the bakeries here in Hamburg, where I live. The cinnamon butter filling is so tasty and the dough has a fantastic consistency. Thanks so much for sharing this winner of a recipe with us, Abby C! I will most definitely make it soon again (maybe with a cinnamon apple filling).

      OMG!!! I used to make these ALL the time!!!! I got the alpha cook book in pre school and have been making these for ages!!!! The dough is kinda dry, and they dont have the best taste, BUT they are so fun and easy for kids to make. I love this recipe/coobook!

      THIS IS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE RECIPES! It's in a children's cookbook (Alpha-Bakery) that my mom got as some freebie from a brand of flour when I was probably 7 years old. I'm still making this one...although I can never make less than a triple or quadruple recipe. Just goes too fast in my house.
