step-by-step recipes :: cinnamon rolls

hello friends, how are you?

i can’t believe that it is friday already! i know i have mentioned before that lately i feel time flying, but i can’t help say it again… time flies! 

so, today we will have a different {shall we eat something}, as a delicious recipe to be posted today didn’t get here on time (that mail pigeon should exercise more!), therefore i am able to do something i have been wanting for quite a while… share a delicious recipe myself, just for the pleasure of “this is delicious, i want to bake these”

…and you read it right “i want to bake these”, which means i didn’t. but i will. that is for sure. and by the way, why did i not bake these cinnamon rolls? because i am always too busy with photography. here are some of my favourites!

just for a little bit of detail, today’s recipe reminds me of traveling. i think that the first time i ate one of these was in new york, when i was trying to speak english with a foreign worker… and we weren’t getting along. the word “cinnamon” was too hard to understand for me, as he kept asking if i wanted it with cinnamon! and i remember arriving in berlin and when we got out to explore the city, this was what i ate first.

what’s the recipe?
cinnamon rolls

where did i get it from?

this recipe is ikea-inspired too… and as i am that fan of swedish things, not only i heart ikea… i also own a swedish car… so what am i waiting to explore sweden? i also don’t know!

1 package Trader Joe’s plain pizza dough*

3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


1 tablespoon whipped cream cheese
1 tablespoon buttermilk
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted

*or any other kind, however if you find this one, should really work!
preheat oven to 375 degrees. combine cinnamon and sugar. on a lightly-floured surface, roll pizza dough into a 9-inch square. brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, leaving 1/2 inch border of plain dough around edges.

roll dough to form a tight log, pinching to seal the seam shut. with the seam side down, cut evenly into six pieces with a serrated knife. place in buttered pan, and brush tops with any remaining butter.

bake until golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. cool for a few minutes before icing.

for icing: whisk cream cheese and buttermilk in large bowl until thick and smooth. sift in confectioners’ sugar; whisk until smooth glaze forms, about 30 seconds.

drizzle glaze over buns with a spoon. or, if you want to get fancy, fill a plastic ziploc bag with the glaze, cut off the tip of one corner, and drizzle in a professional-looking zigzag. serve warm & call your friends for a sunday brunch!

{delicious, huh? sneak-peek here!}

so, this was on behalf of summer days… which remind me of days spent exploring foreign cultures and delicacies like this one. 

dear kitchen, for me you are a special place. you are one of biggest rooms in my tiny house and i just love the way the sun peeks in every morning. i love to prepare delicious things for me & loved ones. you are a place where love for food is explored. i love to cook. i would not trade this room for any other. and i would not use your cabinets for any other thing than what should really be inside. instruments to explore and share.

so, this was the edition for {shall we eat something}, i promise you a more documented one in the future!

until then i hope to keep meeting you here! have a delicious weekend, my friends! and do not forget! next week, we will have {sneak-peek :: photography} and this week’s guest in a major talented woman!!
