Queen of Hearts by Celebrations at Home

I find this so fun!  It was a party done by Chris over at Celebrations at Home and it is great! Think of all the possibilities?!?!?  I think it would be really interesting as a grown-ups only Valentine's Day Dinner.  Maybe throw the King of Spades in there....Go check out Chris's blog!  She is crazy talented.  I wished I lived closer to her so she could throw party for me!

Sweet Buns ;)

Sunday, January 23, 2011

I have been craving cinnamon buns for a bit and decided to make some of my own and I thought I would share.  I got the recipe here!

Recipe calls put put all ingredients in a bread machine just to rise but you don't have to do this.  An alternative is just to knead your dough really well and place in the oven.  Here some great tips on how to get dough to rise. 

Busted out my bread machine I got 9 years ago for a wedding present.
Risen dough.
Greased my Emile Henry Ruffled Pie Dishes from Williams and Sonoma.
Rolled out the dough.
Filled center with the butter, cinnamon and brown sugar mixture.
Rolled on two fingers into buns.
Placed in pie dish and baked.

Iced and Served!
 On a side note.  I made my icing differently. I just used 1 cup of powered sugar and 6 Teaspoons of milk to make the icing.  I was out of cream cheese and seemed a little lighter...as if it matters! *wink*

Happy Baking!
