I made cinnamon rolls this morning. When I say that, I mean I made them from scratch. After spending $40.00 to buy yeast online, I thought I should reward myself by using some of it to make something I love.
I haven’t made these sweet treats in many years. I may not have made them since I moved away from Mom and Dad’s house. I truly don’t remember. Making the dough isn’t a problem, but rolling the dough up full of cinnamon, nutmeg, and butter takes a little practice.
I wish I’d thought to take a picture of the mess, but my instinct was to clean it up as quickly as possible. The whole thing reminded me of my early culinary adventures. I’ve made some big messes in my time.
Baking is one way I deal with my stress and find my zen. Bread products are the best foods to bake when I want to think because they’re so labor intensive. It’s much more of a workout than you might think. Everyone should knead dough at least once.
My next batch will be neater and more symmetrical, but my satisfaction at turning flour, milk, yeast, and other innocuous ingredients into something delicious will be the same.
