"just for you..."

O-kay so Cooner was going to host a cooking class for Catherine & I... but my kiddos got the funk AGAIN & she had to post-pone. NO WORRIES though- she is headed back here next month & I'm sure she will make time for us then. For now though- she has cooked up a storm for us & we L-O-V-E-D every single minute of it (Joey especially). She is working on a cook book one day... but until then here is a sneak peak into her NEVER recorded before FAMOUS... Are ya'll ready for it??
~Jackie's Cinnamon Rolls~

In glass bowl add 1 packet of yeast to 2 cups of warm water & 1/2 cup sugar. Next add in 1/3 cup oil ("stir with your hands until sugar & yeast have dissolved"). Then add 5 cups of all purpose flour & knead dough with hands for about 10 minutes ("beat the crap out of the dough"- in Cooner's words).

Finally.... transfer the dough into a greased bowl & cover with plastic wrap & a dark kitchen towel until it doubles in size (she ALWAYS uses a dark one- something about yeast & it loving the dark???).

Next roll out the dough onto a floured surface & "rub with butter and don't be stingy". Then sprinkle sugar & cinnamon.

Roll the dough into long roll.

Then cross/cut cut it with dental floss.

Arrange rolls in greased pan, then cover again with plastic wrap & a dark towel until they double in size again..

FINALLY... bake the rolls @ 350 "until they are done- I can't give you a number Ashly. When they are done- they are done. They start to look golden" about 28 minutes.
Then "smother" them with yummy cream cheese icing!!!

(like we did!!!)

p.s. We are taking Cooner back to the airport this morning.... I detest that place (it reminds me of when Joey & I were dating & I would visit/he would come home).... However- my refrigerator, pantry, freezer, & heart are FILLED to the brim from all of her goodness!!!!!! I miss her already. Thanks Cooner for EVERYTHING... We love you PICKLE!!!!!
