First of all THANK YOU for all of the love and support you sent today. I was blown away. I truly am so grateful for each and every one of you.
I am thinking we plan a big blog party/vacation for all of us where we go for a run, get pizza and ice cream after and have a big slumber party and paint each other’s nails, watch Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movies and talk about boys. Who’s in? Seriously.
Workout today was stellar:
50 minutes spin
25 minutes stair climber.
3 miles treadmill. Increased incline 1% for each mile starting at 2% but don’t slow down. Take advantage of the incline on the treadmill. You know there was sweat in my eyeballs.
Time for our Christmas Morning Cinnamon Rolls…. put a bib on, you don’t want to ruin your shirt with drool….I would know, I already have three times today.
Cinnamon Rolls To Die For.
Serving Size=at least 4 rolls throughout the day.
Calories: 8 per roll (adding more frosting actually burns more calories.)
3 1/2 cups warm water
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup oil
5 T. yeast
Combine above in large bowl and let rest 15 minutes.
10 1/2 cups flour (or more, if needed)
1 T. salt
Mix into the yeast mixture 5 cups of flour, eggs, and salt with an electric mixer until smooth. (This can be done by hand, but it’s easier with the mixer.) Beat in by hand the remaining flour. Pour out onto floured board and knead until smooth (about 7-10 minutes) adding flour as needed, be careful not to add too much. Let rest about 15 minutes. Divide dough in half and roll each half out to approximately 12” x 30”. Melt 1/2 cup butter and spread evenly over each rolled dough (1/4 cup on each). Sprinkle each with a generous amount of cinnamon and about 1/2 cup sugar. Roll up each half and slice into 20 rolls (40 rolls total)> Place on large cookie sheet and let rise about 20 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes (or until desired doneness) at 400 degrees.
Butter Cream Frosting
3 1/2-4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla
3-4 T. milk (enough to make it spreading consistency)
Beat together with electric mixer until smooth.
Dipping them in hot chocolate and then more frosting is recommended.
Feel free to use extra frosting on your cereal, toast, fruit and oatmeal for the next four days.
P.S. Going back to school today was A.W.E.S.O.M.E. Seriously, my students are the best and they laughed at all my jokes today….usually they just stare and tilt there head to the side.
Who is in for a blogger party?
If you had to choose to only be able to eat the roll or the frosting for the rest of your life what would you choose?
-You know I am a frosting girl. It makes everything better.
Do you like your baked goods more doughy or crunchy? Are you an edge brownie person or center brownie person?
-I am all about the ooey gooey brownies, cookies pretty much everything. The sis and I usually cut the baking time in half. We have problems.
