Tori's Tasty Tuesdays - Cinnamon Rolls

After my last post about baking, I thought it would be fun to let you in on some of the recipes our family enjoys using. So, I am introducing something new: I came up with the name Tori's Tasty Tuesdays (clever, right?) and will be posting a new recipe every Tuesday.
The recipes will range from main courses to side dishes to desserts - if you enjoy cooking, this is something you will not want to miss! Due to schedule conflicts, though, I may not be able to get a new one posted every Tuesday. :) Now, to be perfectly honest, I have to confess that I am not the cook in the family - Deanna is. She loves to cook, so most of these recipes come from her recipe box and she's the one who usually makes them! :)
This week's dish are delicious cinnamon rolls that Deanna made last week:
Ingredients:
1 package of yeast
1 cup warm water
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. melted shortening
3/4 tsp. salt
3 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
4 cups flour
melted butter
cinnamon/sugar
Directions:
1 pkg yeast dissolved in 1 cup warm water. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and let stand 10 minutes. Add: 1/2 c. melted shortening and 3/4 tsp. salt. Beat 3 eggs lightly and add 1/2 c. sugar and beat again. Add to above mixture. Beat in 4 cups flour. Let stand until doubled.

Brush with melted butter, cinnamon and sugar.



Roll dough up and cut in 1 inch pieces. Let rise until light. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Spread powder sugar glaze when warm (powder sugar and milk)

The finished product!

That's a fun idea! I have a question, also. Below the "Leave your comment" thing on your blog here, you have a little note. How'd you do that?

Thanks for the comments Tori. Yes, we do get a lot of snow, most of it is lake effect off of Lake Michigan. Where are you from? I am off to shovel some more snow...would love to have one of those delicious looking Cinnamon Rolls!

Lacey Martin said...

Thanks, Tori! I'll try to do that. Did you all get much snow?

~Tori~ said...

Christina and Lacey,

I am from the good ol' state of Iowa! :) We got quite a bit of snow, so that was just added to what we already had, which was quite a bit, and we are supposed to get more this weekend! [moan] I don't mind snow too much as long as it doesn't interfere with plans! :)

Lacey Martin said...

Yep, I know what you mean about plans. We were having a Christmas party for friends that we play soccer with and we got some winter weather. I really got a little stressed over it! Isn't it terrible? Normally I love snow and always want it...and I'm okay with it right now. But, I know what you mean about interference! :-)

Christina said...

Thanks Tori, I am flattered by your offer. I think that sounds fine...and to be on the same list as Bethany...well I am glad you like my photography so much, I love her blog. Sorry if that didn't make much sense.
