Well, my mother helped me find my appetite. I'm not sure how it came up but during her last day here in Chicago cinnamon rolls were put on the menu and hello sweet tooth! They have all been devoured and I must admit that I was the one that ate them all! (That is not usually the case in this house.)
We made the dough the night before and let it all settle in and absorb all the flavors overnight (covered in the refrigerator). Here they are... the smell of the dough and cinnamon just filled the condo with the most delicious smells!
Here they are post-bake and smelling up the house even more on Saturday morning.
While they were baking we made the frosting... which I must have with my rolls (Mr. D prefers his frosting-less... huh?)! It's a little butter, a lot of powder sugar and a splash of milk and vanilla. So easy and so sugary. And this is what you end up with.
This was something that I'd never made before and am really surprised how easy it was. I'm glad to know how simple it was because those will be on the menu more often now. Mr. D mentioned monkey bread so that might be the next sweet treat to tackle. This looks like a great monkey bread recipe to start from.
Leave it up to your mama to help you get your appetite back!
