bake 52: cinnamon rolls

Cinnamon.  Sugar.  Butter.  Cream cheese.  Enough said.

I'm STILL on vacation.  These rolls were really yummy.  I ended up doing the dough and forming the rolls, and then sticking them in the fridge overnight and baking them in the morning.  They were great.  I'm thinking it would be such an easy breakfast for Saturday or Sunday mornings (if you have church a little later).  I actually appreciated that it only made 12 rolls.  And just the right amount of frosting.  Nice.

Next week should be my last vacation post.

Check out Valerie's blog for the full recipe.

Bake 52: fresh fruit tart

This week was a fresh fruit tart. I'm out of town x2... Went to Utah to visit family, and then went on a work trip with husband. (right now we're in Ohio, yesterday we were in New York... hence the day late on the post. )

 The tart was super yummy. The pastry cream was my favorite. Mmm. The crust was like a cookie, so it kind-a reminded me of a large fruit pizza, only with pastry cream instead of the cream cheese spread. You should really try this one.
