thank goodness for good friends in a small town.
and extra thanks of goodness for friends who like to cook & bake with you!
my sweet friend rachel and i got together on wednesday to make cinnamon rolls. i knew the recipe made A LOT so i planned for her to keep part of them and then i wanted to keep some for myself (duh) and then take some to a friend of mine who just had a baby.
i made the dough the day before because it’s a lot easier to work with when its been refrigerated overnight. then i went over and we did all the fun stuff together.
this is my beautiful dough that i loved and cared for overnight…
these were the sweet assistants (ella & holland) that made their way into the kitchen when they heard what we were making…
and other than rachel and the girls, this was my favorite assistant (the one in red).
so the big girls (and our big guns) rolled out the dough
until it was thin and ready for some sprinkling of sugary deliciousness…
then we let the little helpers come in and assist with the cinnamon sprinkling (in this picture is hadley, whose mom is melissa over at choosing one life)
they did quite a nice job
(of course harper wanted to help too.)
and did i mention this recipe makes A LOT of cinnamon rolls? (this picture shows about half of the pans we filled.)
it’s amazing how delicious they looked even before we baked them.
this was the saddest part of our night: saying goodbye, i will never eat you to most of the icing, as we put it in ziploc bags for our friends who would be getting the yummy goodness.
when we took them out of the oven, we were bursting with pride at our culinary achievement.
i mean look at them…
i probably don’t have to tell you that they didn’t last very long…
we very quickly tasted our hard work… and it tasted soooo good.
did i make your mouth water?
