For this month's Top Ten Challenge from Food Nerd, we are to make a top ten list of recipes we have been meaning to make. We are then supposed to select one, let that blogger know we are going to make their recipe, then make it and post about it. So, this is my top ten list of recipes to make. Some of them have been on my list for quite some time. However, that doesn't mean that I haven't been dreaming about making them someday. So, here is my Top Ten list of recipes I have been meaning to make. The recipe I will be making for this challenge is the top recipe for Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls. So, I will update this post once that part of the challenge is completed. Be sure to check out the other tasty recipes on this list. Ooh, it was so hard to choose just one to make. I'm sure the others will be made, all in good time. :D
Well, I made Joy's cream cheese cinnamon rolls! They were absolutely divine right out of the oven. They were still incredibly delicious later, when they were room temperature. One thing I have wondered about with cinnamon rolls, is how to avoid the centers popping up higher than the rest of the cinnamon roll during the rising and baking time. If anyone has any good advice, that would help me out a lot!
I made a few tweaks to the recipe. I omitted the raisins and used only walnuts. I also increased the salt a tiny bit and used more cinnamon. I also made cream cheese icing using 4 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 cup milk and 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar.
Super recipe! Give it a try!
