I was at home yesterday, enjoying the fabulous weather (not in school) from the comfort of my home in the wonderful company of our 2 year old son. I got a wild hair and decided to try and make cinnamon rolls. Not just any cinnamon rolls, but The Pioneer Woman's cinnamon rolls. Remember, I got her cookbook for Christmas... Moving on, as I read the recipe, I realized it makes 50 cinnamon rolls. We like them and all, but 50? So I decided to cut it in half, still, 25 is a good number of rolls... (I only came out with 17 in the end...shh!!!)
Here we go, can't be that hard - are you kidding me? Do I really only have 3 cups of flour? No, couldn't be... Well, I guess I do have a little bit of bread flour, surely it won't make a big difference... and it didn't.
I don't have a picture of mine, the picture above it what they are supposed to look like. I made a valiant effort, but I couldn't quite duplicate this picture... I've discovered that my biggest fault is rolling them up. I never get them tight enough so when I cut them, they more or less fall apart. (If anyone has any fabulous tips on this part, clue me in, would ya?) I will tell you, they taste pret-ty darn good for my first time... they can only get better with practice, right?
