Cinnamon Rolls

Today 3 of my friends and I got together and made some delicious cinnamon rolls.
Here is the recipe that we used for them.

Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 8 to 12 large buns  
6 1/2 T. granulated sugar 
1 t. salt 
5 1/2 T. unsalted butter, softened 
1 egg, slightly beaten 
1 t. vanilla extract 
3 1/2 c. unbleached bread or all-purpose flour 
2 t. instant yeast 1 1/8 c. milk  

Filling:  6 1/2 T. granulated sugar 
1 1/2 t. cinnamon 

1 c. powdered sugar, sifted 
1/4 t. vanilla extract 

Cream together the sugar, salt, and butter.  Beat in the egg and vanilla; add the flour, yeast, and milk.  Mix until dough forms a ball, then knead for about 10 minutes, adding flour and milk as necessary. Let rise in a covered, oiled bowl until doubled, about 2 hours.  Transfer dough to lightly oiled counter. Roll into a 12”x14” rectangle. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over top. Roll up from the longways and cut into 8 to 12 rolls.  Place cut-side down on parchment-lined baking sheets, or in a 9/13 baking pan.  Let rise until doubled, 75 to 90 minutes.  Bake at 350 for 20 to 30 minutes.  Let cool on wire racks.  Combine ingredients for glaze, drizzling the milk in slowly while stirring.  Use enough milk for the glaze to have a liquid, but still slightly thick texture. Drizzle the glaze over the buns with a small spoon.

Here are some pictures of our rolls before we put the glaze on :)

And last but not least....*drum roll please*...Arianne's.

Hope you all enjoy it if you try it!

doughboy's eulogy

Recently i was devastated by the article below... ;)

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, and wasted much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Doug h and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
