And I just alternated the dry ingredients with the wet mixture three times. And my batter turned out beautiful! It was so light and fluffy.

It was a surprisingly quiet afternoon on Thursday and the house was pretty much clean so I decided now would be a perfect time to try out the cinnamon roll recipe. The dough was very easy to mix up which I was not expecting. I usually make the cinnamon rolls in the bread maker so it can do all the kneading, mixing and rising for me but this recipe wasn’t bad at all. I cut the recipe in half but it still made plenty and I filled 3 1/2 pie tins. I put them in the oven before leaving to go on a run and instructed Sean to take them out when the buzzer went off and put the frosting on. Long story short two pans were still in the oven and were pretty toasty at this point. I was planning to give some to neighbors so I made 1/4 of a batch the next day but I must have messed up the yeast because they didn’t rise as much. The first batch turned out great. They were pretty easy to make and I will probably make these again!

These cinnamon rolls were quite easy to make and very, very good! I halved the recipe because it made quite a lot and I was not planning on giving any away. My dough was pretty soft and I think I needed just a bit more flour and next time I will roll the dough out just a bit more. My maple icing probably could have been a little thinner and next time I will not use as much on the rolls. It just seemed like too much icing. But, I liked this recipe and I will definitely make these again some day- very yummy.
Cooking in the oven:
Just frosted – I know, PW’s look way better than mine and the icing is kind of thick. ooops… looks like I got carried away when I was checking the center for doneness (and tastiness:))
Sorry – I forgot to take a picture of an individual roll. If you have made these and get a chance to post about it I would love to hear your review.

We also enjoyed the biscuits I have never made biscuits so I wasn’t sure how this was going to turn up. Alexandro helped me to cut the biscuits we don't have round cookie cutters so we used a cup, it was perfect!!

I made these this morning for breakfast and they were a nice switch from the usual hot or cold cereal. They were pretty easy and straight forward to make. I followed the recipe as directed except I halved it. Half a recipe made 7 muffins but I filled the cups a little full so it could have made 8 I think. Hope you all get a chance to try out this recipe and post about it.

I made these tasty little things on Monday night for a “breakfast dinner”. The whole recipe was easy to follow and they cooked up nicely. I didn’t make any changes. Sean said that he thought they were vey good. He did say they were a little more dense so they were pretty filling. I made myself some plain gluten free muffins and then rolled them in butter and the cinnamon-sugar mixture. They were very tasty!
