Last week I conquered another item off my Summer list,I made dough from scratch.For some reason I am rather afraid of yeast,I feel like I can easily mess it up,etc BUT I had success with these Cinnamon Rolls. (My Dad bakes bread so I had him make sure the yeast mixture was good to go before I stirred it in, I thought it was going to be a lost cause because it didn't seem that "foamy" like the recipe calls for but my Dad reassured me it was fine). So that was day one :)
Day two consisted of:
Look at that beautiful dough! It was made the day before so it could sit/rise overnight.
Rolled out,buttered up, cinnamon sugar mixture sprinkled on...smelled so divine,too.
(During this time I also turned my oven on to the lowest temperature so that the rolls could sit/rise in a warm place;I turned the oven off just before I cut the rolls so it wouldn't be that hot either)
The finished Rolls! They may not win a beauty contest but they were rather tasty :) Soft and sweet on the inside!
Actually a bit less time consuming than it sounds like,since I thought splitting it into two days was better for my schedule. Next time I will roll the dough into a tighter log shape and check on my rolls after 20 mins,since mine were a bit crispier on the top than what I wanted and it was set for the allotted 25 mins.
