Here is an appealing food for these snowy cold winter days. Warm cinnamon rolls oozing with butter and brown sugar and sweet frosting. You don’t need to be deprived if you can’t eat gluten. Here is your version!
The ingredient list:
3/4 c. lukewarm milk
2 T. yeast
1/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. shortening
In large bowl, pour in water and milk. Add yeast, sugar, shortening and eggs. Stir to combine.
Then slowly start adding your gluten free flour as you mix it.
Add in four cups, then if the dough is still pretty sticky, gradually, 1/4 cup at a time, add more flour. You want it to sorta clump together in a ball, but still be a very soft dough. I ended up using the full 5 cups in this batch.
Melt a stick of butter in a small bowl.
Mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 T. cinnamon in another small bowl.
Then, very carefully, starting on the long side, begin to roll it up. It can be hard to get started. If you get cracks in the dough, just pinch together with your fingers and keep rolling. As you can see, mine has lots of cracks, but it doesn’t affect the taste. 😊
I used a cream cheese frosting for this batch. I will be posting that recipe in a later post.
Sit down with me by the fire now and enjoy one with a cup of cocoa and watch the snow drifting down outside. Just lovely!
