The other day I was in the mood for cinnamon rolls, but I wasn’t in the mood for yeast and rising and dough and dishes. Nope, I was being the lazy baker, boring blogger. I wanted quick easy cinnamon rolls. I could have just popped the little Doughboy open and let him do all the work, instead, I decided to let him hang out and root me on.
I’m a classic anti-baker. I loved the finish product, but I find baking generally not my thing. You’ll never see me turn down the chance to nibble on some cookie dough, so I do it. But it’s restricting, mathematical, and filled with rules. Cooking, on the other hand, is all about experimentation. (And note taking when experimenting, which I am also pretty bad at).
Where these cinnamon rolls weren’t the overly awesome freshly baked pull about dough of the real deal that I was probably craving (and should have just done the work for), they were fun fast tasty little bites. Perfect for a brunch, or even a fun spin on dessert.
