Ah, the childlike joy of having school canceled–what thrill can compare in the mind of a 6 or 7 year old? Yesterday our kids had an unexpected day off due to a power-outage in their elementary building, followed up [with glee] by a snow BLIZZARD day today! Such sweet, unwrapped, intangible gifts are received with smiles as wide as Montana skies in summer, and our kids couldn’t wait to dive into a day in the kitchen with mom. Love that.
In the spirit of sharing, I’m posting my mom’s luscious Cinnamon Roll Recipe today and am inviting you to give them a try. They’re easy, deee-licious, and fun to do with helping hands. I must begin by saying that I acknowledge the hideous nature of the photos below. I took them one-handed with my cell phone because the battery on our real camera was dead. So, the lighting is terrible, the colors unacceptable and unedited, and the sharpness, well, they’re not sharp. But hey–I never claimed to be a photographer 🙂 You’ll still get the idea!
For a Breakfast Party in Your Mouth, You’ll Need:
1 bag of frozen white bread dough [I used a 3-loaf pack of Rhodes]
Copious amounts of brown sugar
Plenty of cinnamon
Raisins if you like them
dental floss for a cutting trick
To end, mix up some powdered sugar + milk frosting and drizzle over warm rolls. Enjoy with your family…just don’t give yourself a stomach ache by eating too many like someone I know did this morning. It makes doing yoga a little uncomfortable!
