Cinnamon Rolls: An adoption

When I first saw the picture of Cinnamon Quill’s cinnamon rolls, (the gorgeous picture to the right) it was a moment of instant salivation. I mean, come on! It’s like a work of art. Not only are the pictures amazing, but you can almost taste them and find yourself sniffing wistfully at the screen. Or maybe it’s just me. And I love her spirit of experimentation with modifying recipes and looking at different ways of making super yummy food. Most of it is vegan or vegetarian, too. If you haven’t seen her site before, you’ll be delighted by the recipes and the food porn *ahem!* luscious pictures.

So I took the opportunity of Adopt a GF Blogger to try out the recipe for cinnamon rolls. I followed the recipe as written, but made the roll the night before and had it ready to go. Rather than filling as directed, I used a combination of cinnamon sugar and pecan butter (yes, I said pecan butter) and glazed them with a pecan butter/cream glaze. I figure why not go all out!

They were very quickly devoured and thoroughly enjoyed. I will definitely make them again, and I’m tempted to veganize them, too.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    These look and sound great. I am excited to be able to have cinnamon rolls and ones that look so good, too. It was one of the few things my mom would bake when I was a kid, so it’s nice to know that I can make those same memories with my child, now. Yippee!
