Made these and they turned out fantastic! I’m married to an Aussie and we live in CA and he always misses things from back home, especially the cheesymite scrolls from Bakers Delight. He said that these taste almost exactly the same…thanks for the recipe!

I was just wondering can these be frozen? Thanks for your help.

Katrina May 18, 2012 - 9:40 AM

Yes they can be, I have some in the freezer at the moment.

Corrie Bateman January 12, 2013 - 4:46 PM

Do you freeze these cooked or raw? :)thanks

Karen January 23, 2014 - 11:35 AM

same question.. is it best to freeze before or after cooking??

Lara February 8, 2013 - 3:12 PM

Mine came out a little doughy and not light at all. What did I do wrong?

Cam June 2, 2013 - 4:04 PM

Just made these with the intention of freezing them as we have a baby due soon. I’ll have to make more though because we demolished most of them for lunch! Thanks so much!

Katrina June 3, 2013 - 9:51 AM

they are great aren’t they, glad you liked them

Brenda August 19, 2013 - 11:46 AM

I was lazy and used sheets of puff pastry but my kids loved them – also did ham and cheese and they got demolished

Katrina August 19, 2013 - 8:50 PM

We do them frequently too, they are a yummy fast option!!

Sandybee August 19, 2013 - 4:15 PM

This recipe reminds me of high school cooking where we use to use the same base and then melted butter and brown sugar to make sweet scrolls.

Katrina August 19, 2013 - 8:31 PM

ooh yum, that sounds good

Belinda Piesnik August 24, 2013 - 10:58 AM

My kids cost me a fortune in cheesymite scrolls. Thanks for this easy delicious recipe!!! THey smell divine!!!

Katrina August 24, 2013 - 1:52 PM

lol Belinda, I am so pleased that this recipe can help you save money. Hope they like them 🙂

your cinnamon scroll recipe before christmas was a big hit in my house. I have never had any left over. I am hoping these are the same.

Kate January 22, 2014 - 1:06 PM

Do you freeze these after cooking?

Tess February 5, 2017 - 3:09 PM

Yes, all Kat’s delicious recipes are to freeze after baking, so no need to do more on a busy morning

Tania January 22, 2014 - 9:34 PM

Can you use sheets of puff pastry instead?

MK January 25, 2014 - 12:31 PM

I made these scrolls today using ham and cheese instead. After several bites my tongue was left feeling like I have licked the flour bowl, not pleasant! I haven’t made dough before, can you please tell me what I did wrong? The kids didn’t notice but hubby and I sure did! Thankyou 🙂

Carol June 12, 2014 - 9:59 AM

Just as they are, a huge hit with the kids. Substitute chutney for Vegemite and suddenly they’re a favorite with He Who Won’t Eat Vegemite (I know, he’s crazy, right!). Fantastic recipe.

Loren October 26, 2014 - 6:09 PM

Do you store in fridge after cooking or not if using the next day? Thanks

Loren October 26, 2014 - 6:10 PM

Do you put in fridge after their cooked?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife October 27, 2014 - 11:23 AM

If they last that long Loren LOL.:) Yes if there are still some left the next day i store them in the fridge or if you like they can also be stored in the freezer.

Jen January 18, 2015 - 7:19 PM

Hi. Made these today and although very nice they were quite doughy – how long do you usually knead the dough for? It just enough to properly mix it or until quite elastic? Thanks!

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 19, 2015 - 9:43 AM

Jen, i knead the dough until it is quite elastic. I hope this helps and next time they aren’t as doughy for you.

Jen January 19, 2015 - 10:06 AM

Thabkd! Will knead a bit more next time.

Jen January 19, 2015 - 10:07 AM

Thanks! Will knead a bit more next time.

Alison January 26, 2015 - 12:41 PM

Just made these for Aussie Day. Yummo! Thanks 🙂

Natalie December 31, 2016 - 9:27 AM

Thanks for this great recipe! I saw it and 45 minutes later my family was eating them for breakfast. So happy with how easy they were and how delicious they turned out.

CandiceC February 17, 2018 - 9:23 AM

How long will these store in the freezer? Looking at making up a batch of freezer friendly snacks for before baby arrives.

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 19, 2018 - 9:55 AM

I’m not to sure to be honest. They never last too long in our household 🙂
