Sister Danielle and Miss Ruth came over today for a little baking fun. I wanted to make some biscuits and cinnamon rolls to put up in the freezer for when we have company during the Florida Fellowship Meeting. I'm figuring out the more than can be done ahead of time, the better!
We started with the cinnamon roll dough. It was quite a sticky, yeasty adventure!
While the dough had to rise, we worked on the biscuits. This was Sis. Danielle's first time making biscuits.
Miss Ruth was a good girl while we were busy in the kitchen. She had fun playing with Wesley!
When it was time to roll out our cinnamon rolls, we thought we had ruined them. The dough sort of exploded in the bowl!
We were able to add some flour and get them to the right consistency. Add a little (or a lot) of butter, sugar, and cinnamon and roll away!
We had read about the floss method for cutting the cinnamon rolls and were a bit skeptical. The directions were to use unflavored dental floss, but I only had mint flavored in my stockpile. I figured a little mint couldn't hurt too much! Let me tell you, this was the smartest thing in the world! It was amazing how easy it was to cut the roll into individual pieces. I think I'm going to try using the floss method on cookie dough.
Of course, we had to test out a a few cinnamon rolls to make sure they were suitable to feed to guests! They got the stamp of approval!
It was a fun day of laughter, baking, and talking. Sis. Danielle even helped me get some laundry done and my kitchen was cleaned up at the end of the afternoon!
