the best things take time.

cinnamon rolls. something about them makes me feel cozy & all warm inside. this recipe is such a hit every time i make them. i decided to make some for my sweet sext  man & some friends that were over last night enjoyed some too.

so. for starters. go ahead and put your yeast & warm water in a bowl bc it needs to sit for about 10 minutes so the bubbles start showing.

 1 1/2 tsp of yeast
 1/2 cup warm water.

In a large bowl, mix-

1/2 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter or shortening
1 tsp salt
1 egg

mix that all up and then add

2 cups ap flour mix until smooth

& then add yeast mixture. 

add about 1 1/2 cups more of ap flour until dough is easy to handle. 

pour dough onto floured surface & knead for about 10 minutes. 

place into a greased bowl for about 1 1/2 hours until doubled in size. 

when its doubled in size roll out- spread melted butter all over and then add filling.

filling: 1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tb ground cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans or almonds

roll it up a little tight. cut into desired size and put into a pan.

i always keep a little of the filling for the bottom of the pan.

let it sit for about 45 minutes and they will rise a little more & then bake at 350 for 30 minutes. 

now for the glaze. my favorite part. 

4 tb butter
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3-6 tb hot water

stir it up until smooth & pour over your yummy rolls. 

i have no idea where i got this recipe. i think it was out of a magazine, but they are so good & my go to cinnamon roll recipe!

yummy peanut butter cookie.

so since it is the holidays i have been baking/cooking all the time. i spent a few hours looking at pie crust recipes - insert that cute wide eyed emoji right here. so i was skimming through recipes on pinterest the other day after many glances at all the cookbooks i have & found this one.

1 1/2 cups AP flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup peanut butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 medium sized eggs
extra sugar for rolling
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat together the butter, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Mix in both sugars, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Gradually mix in the flour, half at a time.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
  5. Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls and then roll the balls into sugar. Using a fork, flatten the cookie and make a criss-cross pattern. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet after taking them out for about 8 minutes before removing them with a spatula. Cool completely before storing. Enjoy!

so good. i love little bowls so i always pour out all the measurements into them before i start.

cute right?

these eggs came from my sisters fiance's farm & they are so good. everyone should buy free range eggs!

i also use my grandmothers wooden spoons for mixing, who needs a mixer?

roll them into balls, then into sugar, put them on the pan & go to town with the fork. bake for about 15 minutes at 350 and you have yourself some amazing cookies. 

cheers to the holiday's,
