For Your Rainy Day
As promised on our Facebook page, here is the recipe for my rainy day treat. Trust me, peeps, this is THE BEST. Cinnamon rolls used to be one of those things I couldn't perfect, and after trying countless recipes this was the clear cut winner. They turned out great and oh my, they taste divine. Try them out and tell me what you think, okey-dokey?
The Best Cinnamon Rolls
1 1/4 c. warm water 1 1 /2 c. sugar 2 1/2 Tbsp. yeast
Add together and let set for 10 minutes. Then add-
1 1/4 c. melted butter (Hey, I didn't say they were HEALTHY!) 1 1 /4 tsp. salt 4 eggs 2 1/2 c. mashed potatoes 9 c. flour (1 c. at a time)
Knead until smooth, then let rise until double. Divide dough into two equal portions and roll each out into a large rectangle. Spread with softened butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. (I don't use measurements for these, so...) Roll them up, cut them into 1 1/2 in. pieces, and let them rise a 2nd time, until doubled. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-16 minutes.
