Cooks with Passion

Isn't that what it is all about. PASSION. We love to eat. We love to get people together to eat. We love meeting places to eat. We just love eating.
I look forward to making that special thing that makes everyone smile.
Hope you enjoy my favorites.

D e n i s e


1 hour Cinnamon Rolls

These are the best ever! I got this from my friend Amy Thatcher who promised me they would only take an hour. She was right. I did modify her salt from 1 tsp. to 3 tsp.

3 1/2 cup warm water
6 TB. yeast
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup oil
Mix briefly in Bosch, let sit for 15 mins.

Then add:

3 tsp. salt
3 eggs
10 1/2 cup flour or less, just enough so it's not sticky
just keep adding the flour one cup at a time until it pulls from the sides of the bowl.

Divide dough in half. Roll into 20x12 inch rectangles. Spread with softened butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Add nuts or raisins if desired.
Using a pizza cutter, cut down middle lengthwise then cut in strips the other way. Roll up the strips and place on cookie sheets (Ungreased) 2 inches apart.
Bake 425 degrees for 10 mins.
Top with icing while still warm. Makes 2 pans.

1 stick butter, softened
1 bag powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
milk to consistency
Mix well.
