Several weeks ago,during my Pinterest addiction phase , I came across an incredible looking pastry. The photography was so beautiful I bookmarked it immediately as a must try recipe, along with the 1000 other must try recipes on my Pinterest Board ! But this one was calling me,bake me Sandy...bake me...I would look so pretty on your kitchen table...bake me. I really tried to ignore it's siren song but on this rainy morning with occasional sun breaks, it lured me in. It wasn't hard to be seduced by this-it's undulating design, the cinnamon and sugar and the ease of the recipe itself. Too bad J is out of town,he's missing a good one ! But it wasn't just the gorgeous picture that hooked me, I love all things cinnamon. The smells in the kitchen when something with cinnamon is baking in the oven takes me immediately back to my childhood. I don't remember my mother ever baking cinnamon rolls but she made the best cinnamon toast ever. We had a shaker of cinnamon sugar always at the ready,just pop some Wonder bread into the toaster,slather with butter while still hot and sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the buttered bread-and there it was-one of my favorite treats that I remember from my childhood
1st attempt-baked at too high of a temperature
Most of my 2nd attempt looked pretty,I won't put you through viewing the section where the 2 pieces were joined together-it's not pretty !
