Cinnamon Rolls

I had been wanting to make cinnamon rolls for some time now.  Passing through cookbooks, always stopping at the picture of ooey-gooey luscious cinnamony rolls.

An upcoming morning coffeetime with the principal would be a perfect opportunity.  I started the dough the day before, letting it rise a couple times.  After dinner the dough was ready to spread with butter, cinnamon, and sugar.  The kids helped me, sprinkling the dough with the cinnamon and sugar.  I rolled in into a giant log and the kids watched with amazement as I cut each roll with dental floss.  “Wow, where did you learn how to do that?”  “How did you know to use floss?”  “I want to eat them right now!”

Covering the pans with towels to rise one last time, I put the kids to bed.  I baked them off that night and drizzled with powdered sugar glaze in the morning.  The were a hit and people were amazed to see that “some people still make stuff like that from scratch.”  Maybe in some ways, that is what I am here for, to dispell the myths and inspire others to make their own food from scratch.
