Cinnamon rolls, a grandson, and a grandmother: Working together for a delicious outcome!

Cheney, Washington

We have had a fun time with Hailey, Joseph, Clark, and Avonlea in Washington (more pictures to come!).

The first thing that Clark wanted to do when we arrived was to have Grandma teach him how to make cinnamon rolls. So, what does a Grandma do when a grandson asks her to help him make cinnamon rolls? She does it.

Of course, one of the most important parts is to have all of the ingredient ready and waiting. Stirring them in one at a time is equally important.

Then, comes the arduous task of patience: waiting for the dough to rise.

Once you have the strips cut perfectly, you add the most important ingredients: butter, cinnamon, sugar, etc. Then, carefully, you roll it up into a log and cut them into circles and place them gently on the pan to rise again.

Once the rolls have risen sufficiently, you place them in the oven and bake them. 

After they are done, you let them cool a bit before applying the delicious frosting that is a mixture of cream cheese and powdered sugar with a dash of vanilla.

Clark did the slathering--the frosting of the cinnamon rolls. He did slather them beautifully, making sure there was barely a brown spot of roll showing. Isn’t that what makes them good?

We saved for dessert after dinner. They were divine and delicious!

Thanks, Clark and Grandma Hammon, for the delicious cinnamon rolls!

We love you!
