Oh Sweet Cinnamon Rolls!

What a wonderful spring we have been having here in the Texas hill country! I have been looking forward to the ripe fruits and vegetables that should be on their way! We have a strawberry farm a few miles away, and I’m looking forward to getting out there in the next week or so to pick some ripe, juicy berries. I’m contemplating whether I am going to share my favorite Strawberry Pie recipe with you-I know, Selfish Me! I’m sure I’m not the only one who withholds secret family recipes, or am I??? Anyway, more on that in the next week or two.

Yummy and Sticky!

This past week I baked up some made from scratch sweet cinnamon rolls-Yukon Gold Cinnamon Rolls to be exact. The recipe was from Bon Appétit-one of my favorite sites.  I’m not one for using yeast and letting things rise, just not that patient. So to my surprise (and the joy of my family), I found myself making these rolls. I guess the pictures tempted me. They were actually much easier that I had imagined, and from the way they turned out, I will definitely be making more for guests and special occasions. Next time I will add more of the cinnamon filling (they never add enough in my opinion). I will also try freezing them before they rise so that I can have them ready for company.

The special thing about these cinnamon rolls is that they contain potatoes! Being the finicky eater that he is, my husband cringed at the thought of it; he just hasn’t heard of potato bread and the like. I’m positive the creamy, buttery potatoes were the reason for the light, smooth, airy texture of these rolls. The icing was also very easy, but again, not enough for my liking-I made two batches.

So on a day when you’re wanting to bake, and wanting your family to praise your cooking ability, or you’re trying to impress you breakfast guests, try these delicious rolls and let me know how you like them!

(Note to my sisters: Yes, I will include you on the guest list!)
