Traditional Thanksgiving cinnamon rolls
These Thanksgiving cinnamon rolls results show a marked improvement over the last time Darr and I attempted this recipe. All said, it took about an hour to make these suckers. They tasted good but not great. The outside was a tad too crunchy. In a pinch, assuming I had all the ingredients on hand, I'd make it again but the search for an excellent cinnamon roll recipe continues. I do, however, really like the buttermilk and cream cheese icing. Yummy! As for Thanksgiving dinner prep, our mutant bird* is in the oven and the first step of gravy production has been completed. Our menu is as follows:
mashed potatoes with gravy
seared green beans
sparkling apple cider†
*Gus, our turkey, came with one gimpy leg and two necks. Mon dieu.
†We like to say we bought this for Henry but we all plan on drinking it. Sparkling apple cider is good.
