Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

Do you love cinnamon rolls?

I do..a lot..actually we all do in a my family.So when i had asked my daughter earlier this month,what we should have for breakfast on Christmas morning?Her quick response was cinnamon rolls.I couldn’t have guessed !

I have watched PW cinnamon rolls episode,when it first came on and i had grandiose idea of making dozen pans full of cinnamon rolls  covered in ooye- gooyee sugary goodness ever since,just like Ree did.*sigh* it didn’t happen like that,this year again.

Then a week or so before Christmas,mails arrived.And there it was in packet,one of the most delightful  fragrant  spice.Vietnamese cinnamon,one of my sweet friend had sent me this little surprise.Now the first question,do you have cool friends like that?I am glad you do :-).Second and last question,do you get EXCITED to see something like Cinnamon or Annato or Kafir lime in your mail box?Yes,i was pretty thrilled too,as if you can’t tell.

So the next best thing,after indulging in aroma of this exotic intense cinnamon was to use it somewhere and so i did.No,not what i said earlier but i did manage to make dozen rolls just for us.In fact,i cramped in the pan,so much that it didn’t had enough room to expand(don’t do that mistake) but it was forgiving and still tasted great.I didn’t get the chance to freeze it but it will totally make my freezer breakfast menu.

I followed the cinnamon rolls recipe at deliciousyetnutritious,pretty much.

I used the white stuff for frosting.Yes,white powder sugar.I was also generous in butter and sugar and cinnamon.If i saw there was a blank dough peeking out,i made sure it got the taste of cinnamon and sugar too.

I am mostly a fan of cardamom but sometimes too much of a good thing,may not be a good thing after all.So i left it out and let the cinnamon prevail.

It was DELICIOUS.
