251  Cinnamon Rolls in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: December 30, 2012 08:51:32 AM

This recipe came from a Family Circle magazine probably 15 or 20 years ago.  It was billed as the T.J. Cinnamon's recipe.  It is so very good, I hope you'll try it!

Start by dissolving two packages of yeast in 1/2 cup of warm to the touch water (110 degrees F.) and 1/2 teaspoon sugar.  Let it stand for at least 5 minutes to get foamy.  In a mixing bowl, combine 3 cups all purpose flour, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon salt.   At low speed, gradually add in 1 cup warm milk, 1/3 cup salad oil, 2 eggs and the yeast mixture until well blended.  Slowly add in another 1.5 cups flour and knead the dough for 10 minutes.  I knead mine with a dough hook in my stand mixture but you could knead it by hand on a floured surface.



The dough is smooth and elastic after kneading.  At this point, put it in a bowl with about a tbsp. of oil in it, cover with a clean towel and let it rise for an hour.



While the dough is rising, make the filling.  You'll need 1/2 stick of butter at room temperature, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.



Just mix all ingredients until they come together.



Here's the dough after rising for an hour.  Turn it onto a floured surface.



Roll the dough into a rectangle approx. 18 by 10 inches.



Spread the cinnamon filling on top then roll it up on the long side.  You'll end up with an 18 inch long log of cinnamon filled dough.  Cut the dough log into 14 equal slices.



Place the slices into greased 9 inch round cake pans.  This recipe makes two pans.



Cover and let rise for about 45 minutes.  Here's what they look like after rising.



Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (until golden brown).



I remove them from the cake pan after about 10 minutes and glaze with a mixture of 1 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 Tbsp. milk and 1 tsp. vanilla.   I hope you'll give them at try!

252  Re: Craft Your Daily Reflections--based on Leafcutter Designs Sky Scarf concept in Craftalongs by MissingWillow on: December 17, 2012 10:48:37 AM
I decided to do a small quilt.  Here are the sky fabrics I have so far.  I also decided for each holiday, I will not include a sky observation.  Instead I will include some pattern related to the holiday.  That way, there will be random splashes of holiday color throughout.  So far I've got Easter, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July and Halloween covered.  I'm on the hunt for something for New Years and Groundhog day.   Smiley

253  Cornbread Sausage Cranberry Apple Walnut Stuffing in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: November 26, 2012 09:21:07 AM
Here is my holiday stuffing recipe.  My family loves it!


I start with cornbread stuffing mix.  I read the back of the package for the recipe (amounts of butter and chicken broth to add) then start gathering other goodies...


I dump the stuffing mix in a huge bowl then crumble up and fry a package of sausage.  Once I drain off the fat, the sausage is added to the stuffing mix. 


An entire bag of cranberries are rinsed, picked over, and added raw to the stuffing mix.


I mince and saute shallots, 3 stalks of celery and a few sliced mushrooms in the amount of butter the stuffing bag calls for.  Add to the mix.


Peel and slice an apple, add it to the mix.  Once I have all of the add-ins, I stir in the amount of chicken broth called for on the stuffing package. 


In my house, half of the stuffing gets walnuts.  Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350.

259  Caramel Chocolate Covered Apples in Dessert by MissingWillow on: October 30, 2012 04:56:47 AM


I make these every October.  They're so easy!  I used fuji apples in the past until I discovered giant honey crisp apples. 

3 giant apples (or more if you decide to use smaller ones)
1 bag of caramels (I used Kraft caramels)
1 bag of chocolate chips (I used Ghiardelli dark chocolate chips)
1 Tbsp. corn syrup
1 tsp. vanilla or vanilla bean paste

Wash apples and set them on parchment paper.  I use a small plate for each apple for ease of transport.  Microwave the caramels and corn syrup on medium power at 30 second intervals until the caramels melt.  Stir in vanilla.  Spoon over the apples then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. 

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave on medium power at 30 second intervals until melted.  Spoon over the cooled apples.  At this point, you can also add nuts, sprinkles, candies if you like.  We are purists.  Cheesy   

To serve, cut the apple in slices and remove the seeds.

Gebah sent me wall art featuring some of the animals we raise.  She captured our great pyrenees, sheep, goat, chicken, border collie and bees.  This is so well and thoughtfully done.  Thank you so much, Gebah!
