Yummy, Yummy Cinnamon Rolls


This is by no means a step by step
tutorial for making 
Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls.  
You can find that by clicking HERE.

Instead, this post is some random
photos and thoughts
as I make the rolls.
I have had this wooden rolling
pen since I got married 41 years ago.
It is the GREATEST!
I wouldn't want another one.

My new granite countertops
make a great prep surface.
There are just some brands that you have
to be loyal to.  For me, one of those
is Gold Medal All Purpose Flour.
I have lots and lots of
different kinds of bowls,
but this one is the best for melting
butter in the microwave.
Ready to go in the oven.
There is something so satisfying about making HUGE
quantities of food and
putting some of it in the
freezer for later use.
 
Yes, this recipe uses butter.
LOTS and LOTS of BUTTER!
 
The Pioneer Woman's recipe calls for
granulated sugar for the filling
(along with cinnamon).
I substitute brown sugar and it is
oh, so, yummy!
The dough rolled up
and ready to cut is just so pretty.
I also make a different icing (frosting) than
the Pioneer Woman recipe calls for.
I make a Cream Cheese frosting
(thank you Terry Alsdorf for suggesting).
I use this homemade vanilla
which was a Christmas present from
my sweet DIL, Mandy.

If you've never made these Cinnamon Rolls,
you owe it to yourself and those you love
to make them ASAP.

Warning:  Don't get on the scale
for a few days.

I am thinking instead of putting some in the freezer you should bless a friend :-)

Is your cream cheese frosting recipe just a basic one or do you do something special to put it on the cinnamon rolls?

And speaking of how great granite counters are for rolling out dough. Jes got me a Good Grips Pizza Wheel that has a clear plastic blade. It says on it that it is good for non-stick pans. It is great to use directly on granite without worrying about scratching the granite finish. I use it when I make chicken and dumplings and I roll the dumplings out right on the granite.

One *could* make the cinnamon rolls for herself OR she could just come to the tea tomorrow and eat her mother's. :) love you! Kel
