The Friend and Cinnamon Roll Cookies Recipe!

Keeping with my theme of catching up on blog posts and writing news, I had a story published in the June 2017 edition of the Friend magazine! As with most of my life, my daughters were the inspiration and driving force for me to record and submit this story. It really is a delightfully inspired, easy to read story, so please take a moment and have a look (plus the artwork is beautiful!).

 

And once again, we’re almost always in the mood for cinnamon, and we wanted to celebrate. My daughters love it when I make this Cinnamon Roll recipe (seriously delicious), so I thought about making these. However, for the last while, we’ve been travelling and no place we’ve stayed had quite the right equipment to make Cinnamon Rolls (no beaters, no rolling pin, etc.).

 

So we got creative! Never being a snickerdoodle fan (too crunchy!) I messed around with sugar cookie recipes, and ended up creating what we call Cinnamon Roll Cookies. We love them! With or without icing, these hit the spot and are sure to be a favourite for all of the cinnamon roll lovers in your life.

Celebrating Writing with Cinnamon Pancakes

Things have been exciting and crazy busy for us lately with many exciting things!

 

One of the most exciting things is that I placed in the annual Segullah Journal Annual Contest in the prose section. You can read my essay here, Our Plat du Jour Family.

 

Whenever something good happens (like the above) I like celebrating with food. My daughters *love* almost all things cinnamon, so with the help of my eldest daughter, we created this Cinnamon pancake recipe that is super-duper yummy.
