For Bakers and Sweet Tooths

Yesterday I had a craving for some cinnamon rolls. I had seen a few mentions on line of a certain cinnamon roll recipe that was to die for. So I tried. Oh my...

Well, I loved them, my kids were crazy about them and, here is the clincher...even Pun (who doesn't eat my desserts) was licking his fingers. I even caught him sneaking downstairs later for one more! I made a big pan and a little pan of these and we polished off the big pan in about 10 minutes. Ouch!

We ate up the little pan for breakfast this morning. I thought I should have a picture to show you but this is all I have...





Oh, and did I mention they are easy-peasy! It is a recipe for those who are afraid of making anything involving yeast. No kneading involved and it turned out to be the softest and lightest dough I have ever made. It is very simple. I did cut this recipe down to a fourth (just in case you are wondering how we put away so many cinnamon rolls!) And the frosting is made with coffee. Yummy! The great thing about making these for me is that all the ingredients are easy for me to get (except the maple flavoring, I substituted vanilla) and they are also inexpensive. I am in the process (and I think that this will take years) of learning to cook with the different ingredients and methods for food prep available here to produce the foods I love. This recipe is a keeper!

Thanks for sharing the recipe! I'll have to try this. I loved reading the recipe...especially the parts where she gives you ideas on what to do during the waiting (buying cellulite cream, playing twister with the mailman)!

You would love it, Karen. You know, cinnamon rolls make me think of you! You once told me that they were one of the things that didn't taste so bad coming up when you had morning sickness, so now I remember you when I eat them--HA! Yes, this lady's website is pretty funny. Our kind of humor. She seems to have a lot of good recipes.

Yup! I think that's hilarious you remember that. They tasted just as good coming up as going down. I still crave them.

I really miss you!!
