Today I felt like making cinnamon rolls. Fall is in the air and I am embracing the cooling weather and crispness outside. Fall is my favorite time of the year.
I love my own cinnamon rolls the best of all because I can load them with nuts and raisins and season them with mace. Mace is the secret ingredient that makes a cinnamon roll worth eating. I put a bit in the dough and I sprinkle more with the brown sugar and cinnamon.
I’m not a frosting person, but I like just a drizzle of icing to give more flavor. I use vanilla, almond and lemon extracts in my icing. There are so many delicious flavors in these rolls. The recipe is below.
I grew up in a “dunking” family. My mom loved to bake on Saturdays. We often had “dunkins and milk” for Saturday dinners after a long day of work. Warm cinnamon rolls dunked in a cup of cold milk or hot chocolate is simply the best ever.
