Those of us who make our own cinnamon rolls feel the same way about the process: It's a messy, but satisfying business.
Who is Mrs. Schweitzer? She is the mother of a friend of my M.I.L., and can be trusted for taste and texture in a recipe. The end product (it must be admitted) is not noticeably fat free, or even fat-reduced. That would be impossible, and it is best just not think of fat at all. It doesn't figure into this. Stop it.
And then there came a day, one amazing day I learned about Paula Deen's cinnamon rolls. Oh-ho! they are apparently the Real Thing, better even than Mrs. Schweitzer's.
I had heard of Paula Deen's cooking show. We knew that there had been some sort of 'fuss' about Paula Deen, but I don't really know quite why. I don't mind about it, not if the woman can bake like she does and create great followings of people who wish to indulge in, or even copy-cat her show and her recipes. Millions of American taste buds cannot possibly be all wrong.
So, I am preparing a switch-over. And on a day soon when it is no longer sweltering in this sweet woodland cabin (oh may it be soon), I shall make Paula Deen's cinnamon rolls. In fact - I shall make them both, and see what we think right then and there!
But for now...it is sweltering...
(Is there anyone else out there without a/c who can sympathize? Anyone...?)
