…because I made something from The Pioneer Woman’s Cookbook. I got stuck in this afternoon and made her Cinnamon Rolls. She raves about them at every opportunity on her blog and they do look good, so today I gave them a whirl. I had to gather all the ingredients first and there was a lot. I thought there was anyway! I missed something off this photo too, the vegetable oil. They took quite a while to make, you have to leave the dough to rise for an hour and then wait another 20 minutes when you have made the rolls before you can put them in the oven. Boy, they’re fiddley too when it comes to rolling up the dough mixture with the filling in the middle. But I succeeded and ta da… here they are.I know, they don’t half look a gooey mess! I think I may have overdone it on the maple icing but, they tasted GOOD. Funnily enough though our little boys didn’t like them! However, all the adults did. I only got a picture of Gary and he had all but finished his. It’s difficult to take photos when there’s food around, especially when I’m the one wearing the pinny and trying to eat my own share too.
Caroline said they were good and she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to cinnamon rolls. That’s another reason to feel pleased with myself!
