Cinnamon Rolls

I have made my first attempt ever at making cinnamon rolls. The “from scratch” kind. I found this most wonderful recipe with nice reviews at this lovely blog called “Food Loves Writing” and let me tell you, there are many more recipes on there I plan to try!

Back to the cinnamon rolls, though. Everything was going great until I realize I read the instructions a little too hurriedly and somehow ended up adding a cup and a half too much flour!! It had just begun mixing at the time I realized the earlier instruction said “divided”. Oops! It all worked out though because I was able to work fast and not let all the flour get into the dough during mixing. Whew!

While I was working away, he was my photographer and was actually shooting pictures during each stage of this prep. I was amazed when I was going through all of them! How sweet he is!

In progress (not sure why my fingertips are so red, unless its my obsessive washing of my hands anytime I’m cooking):

Going into the dish:


Just out of the oven (see my kitty cat potholder peeking through the clear glass dish LOL):


And, the finished product:


My personal review of these – delicious! I don’t care for the icing and next time I might just use a glaze instead of the cream cheese icing. Or maybe the recipe just made too much for the amount of cinnamon rolls there were. At at rate, they were still very, very good. Well worth the trouble!!
