Those who know me well know that I’m a don’t wannabe cook. I don’t even care that much about eating, although the size of my jeans would belie that comment. But, back to cooking. If someone would cook all the food that could be eaten in this family, I would gladly do the dishes. WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT!? I already do the dishes. Ok, so I digress. I’ll spare us all and won’t get started on the whole dishes thingy.
Anyway, David has expressed an interest in cooking (well, more like baking but hey! we gotta start somewhere) and I am going to do my utmost to facilitate this interest in our homeschool. I found this recipe on another blog and David made it this morning.
After all the mixing, it needs to be rolled out. David really likes using the rolling pin and this is much easier than pizza crust.
(ahem, I did not see “the” kitchen table in the background… I have officially declared it the thorn in my flesh…)
No shaker top on the cinnamon. He did a good job without it.
Then rolling it up. Use a big spatula if it sticks and just stick the little pieces that tear out back in.
Ready to bake!
Now for the icing. Pretty straightforwardly YUMMY!
The finished product. I have to admit that the picture in the original blog showed icing lightly drizzled on the rolls. We, of course, have to drown ours.
We declared the no rise cinnamon rolls to be a huge success. Here’s the proof.
And, so I can give credit where credit is due, here is the link to the recipe from the original blog. We will visit this blog often for her simple, delicious and cook-in-training-friendly recipes.
