I have been basting more and more hexagons. I have quite a collection now.
I love cinnamon rolls, especially these ones. The recipe comes from my aunt Diane, who makes a batch every single week. When I was growing up, she used to sometimes show up at our house with a batch so fresh she hadn't even been able to cover the container before she left the house. Now I live too far away for that, so I have to make my own (though not every week).
Don't you just want to make your own?
Diane's Cinnamon Rolls
3 cups flour
4 tsp sugar
8 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
margarine or butter
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening until the size of peas. Add milk, mix to blend. Knead 20 times.
Roll out on lightly floured surface. Spread with margarine or butter (I use Becel).
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon, then spread over dough. Roll, starting from a long side and cut about 1 1/2" thick. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
Whether you make another batch next week is entirely up to you!
