I’d love to say it’s mostly because they get to listen to hours of spiritual inspiration on television.
(Someday they’ll join me in glee at that prospect…I LOVE conference…you can watch, listen or watch it HERE.)
But for now I think that light in their eyes comes particularly from this knowledge:
In our family conference = cinnamon rolls.
I love the ones we make cause they’re quick and you don’t have to waste time with letting them rise two times like most recipes.
And I have Bobette to thank for that.
I don’t know who Bobette is, but her name is on the recipe, so thank you Bobette!
I’ve had a few people ask for the recipe so here you go:
2 cubes of butter (1 cup)
2 c. milk
1/2 c. tap-hot water
2 heaping tbs. yeast
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
7 c. flour
1 egg, beaten
brown sugar (for sprinkling on the dough before rolling…I use between 1/4 and a 1/2 cup)
cinnamon (about 2 tsp.)
Dissolve yeast and the warm water, set aside. Melt butter in microwave. Warm milk in microwave. Combine butter and milk. Add the yeast to the milk mixture until well mixed. Add the beaten egg.
Slowly add the remaining ingredients and mix until dough separates from the bowl. Knead the dough for two minutes on low speed.
Let the dough rise (45 min-1 hour).
Roll out into two rectangles. Butter dough and sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins (optional…I don’t do raisins).
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes (nope, you don’t even have to have them rise again).
Frost with butter-cream frosting:
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 c. powdered sugar
3-4 tbs. half and half (I just use milk)
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Slowly add half and half (or milk), while beating until you get a smooth, spreadable consistency.
