I closed the door on the sew machine room
I placed those crafty books on the bookshelf...
....I picked up a wooden spoon
Adorned myself with a homemade apron
opened the fridge and pantry
And got baking.....
Oh they are delicious, delectable, sinful, satisfying, irresistible and great to share around!
Retro Mummy had blogged about her Cinnamon Scrolls for the third day in a row. I had to check out what the fuss was all about so I sort out the recipe from Pioneer Woman and watched, step by step, with wonderful photo's how the scrolls were made -
The decision was easy - I had to make them! I read through the ingredients - Yep I have all of those and in the method there is even a suggestion of where you can stop half way and complete the rest the next day- perfect! It was already 8.30pm and I figured I could make the dough and finish off the rest the following morning before playgroup!
I halved the recipe and made smaller scrolls by dividing the dough in half again when it came to making them - this resulted in perfect sized scrolls for little people and an incentive for bigger people to have more than one! The frosting is divine and I was licking it from the spoon when finished! I added expresso coffee and Maple syrup to the frosting instead of just brewed coffee and I did not have maple flavouring - but it worked out fine!
I took one tray to playgroup, dropped of another tray to my husband at work and left some in my friends letterbox. The verdict was unanimous - they are extraordinarily the best scroll ever!
I dare you to try and stop at one! And these are not dainty, sit with your crochet hook and nibble - oh no, these are sticky, lick your fingers and get frosting all over the handle of your mug kind of treat!
