A New Christmas Recipe


Every year I stress about baked goods, and every year I have a disaster cookie/baked goods drama.  (last year my banana bread turned into a dense poundcake...don't ask:):)  Designer and Cook I am....BAKER I AM NOT!!!!   This year, I decided to try a new recipe and am SOOOO pleased with the results.  Guess what is tied all up in these drop cloth packages....

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls!  

 Yep, it is true...I made Homemade Gooey Cinnamon Buns and it was NOT a disaster!  And they were WAY easier than I was anticipating...thanks to The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummand and her step by step, pictorial recipe on how to make them.  Really, ya'll SOOOO easy!  This year, I am actually proud to have my children present these packages to friends and family.   (instead of backing away from the door saying.."don't feel obligated to eat them"!!!)

 I did not take photos of the process, I am leaving that up to Ree...so if YOU want to add this to your arsenal of Christmas/everyday homemade goodies then take a look at her site for the recipe and the how to. (if you haven't already!)  You will NOT be dissappointed. 

Now, we are off to do some delivering!

(BTW: I am 1 year older today.... thinking I don't like this Birthday thing anymore...)

Aw, a big Happy Birthday to you Gretchen! (This is my half-birthday :) 22 is a great number! And cinnamon rolls sound delightful! I'd take a cinnamon roll over a cookie anyday. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family!
