Probably but a friend asked me to put recipes on my blog..”Every great blog has recipes” she said.
After giving it some thought, I figured why not?
I once made the statement “I love to cook, but I live for baking”…and it’s still true, although it was once impossible with all the voices screaming in my head.
I now use it to help heal…every jar full of cookies is a “screw you” to “the whore”…you didn’t beat me.
So here we go… another first….Cinnamon Rolls so easy, I almost named them after…well you know who 😉
Cheating Heart Cinnamon Rolls
1 yellow cake mix 1/2 cup softened butter
5 cups. All purpose flour 1 cup melted crunchy peanut butter
2 pkgs. Yeast Brown Sugar
2 ½ c. very warm water Cinnamon
Dump your cake mix, flour, and yeast in mixer bowl (try to forget it’s the mixer your husband bought you during the affair…when that doesn’t work remind yourself how pissed “the whore” was when she found out he bought it…then Thank God that during your “display of anger with a sledge-hammer” you didn’t break it, because it makes cinnamon rolls and bread simple.)
Add the water (hot to the touch but not so hot you can’t put your finger in it) to the dry mixture and mix till combined…switch out for your bread dough hook and let it knead the dough for 4-5 minutes…(if you don’t have a mixer just stir till combined and then knead it till it forms a ball…it’s a good time for working out any anger “issues”)
Set dough aside and let it rise in a warm place covered with a towel or cling wrap.
The dough should be doubled after 2 hours or so….place the dough on the counter and roll it out into a rectangle.
Combine the melted peanut butter and butter and spread over the dough.
Sprinkle on the brown sugar covering the entire surface. Then shake on the cinnamon over the whole rectangle of dough.
Roll up from the long side of the rectangle. Cut the roll into 3 inch pieces and place them on cookie sheet. After you get them on the cookie sheet, push them down with the palm of your hand, this will flatten them out slightly making them larger.
Let rise 30 min-1 hr. Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.
While hot ice with powdered sugar icing…if you love peanut butter add 1/3 c. peanut butter to the frosting.
