Tutorial from Sue's Kitchen: Cinnamon Rolls 101

     One day last year, my daughter Caitlin and I took pictures of how to make cinnamon rolls. So, if you have a desire to make your own jumbo cinnamon rolls, here's how I do it in Sue's Kitchen:
  1. Roll out your dough into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface-any easy bread dough recipe will work
  2. Brush the dough with cooled melted butter
  3. Sprinkle on a mixture of 1 cup brown sugar & 1 Tbsp. cinnamon-don't be shy, I always add lots
  4. Roll up the dough longways
  5. Moisten the edge of the dough with water and pinch the edges to seal and prevent it from unrolling.
  6. Cut your rolls. I make mine about 1-1/2 inches wide
  7. Arrange in a lightly greased baking pan; for soft edges place them so they touch when they've risen
  8. Brush tops with melted butter to prevent hardening and cover with a dish towel
  9. Allow to rise in a warm spot until doubled in size
  10. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until lightly brown
  11. Cool 
  12. Prepare buttercream or cream cheese frosting and frost each roll
  13. ENJOY!!

The Clintonville Woman's Club enjoyed Chicken Pot Pies!

     Last week I partnered with one of the best chef's in town (Chef Auggie from The Clintonville Woman's Club), to make 100 chicken pot pies for their Founders' Dinner. I made the crusts and club's emblem for the top and he did the rest of the work. I heard they were a Humongous Hit and after eating this one I know why. Not to brag or anything, but the crust was the flakiest I've ever eaten and the chicken/veggie filling was to die for. I love it when a collaboration comes together!!
     For those of you who missed it, here's a bite:

I'm off to bake some triple chocolate brownies and
lots of cookies for Market 65. Enjoy the day!!
