We're back in business!

Does anyone else cut dough like this? My mom taught me this trick in highschool. You use some heavy thread or floss and pull up the two side pieces and cross them over on top and pull them in opposite directions to cut right through the dough. Does that make sense? It works so much better than cutting it. The rolls stay in a circle and aren't smushed. Jonas took this picture for me. Not bad! That's a close- up of my new countertop btw!







And now for the taste test..... They are soooo YUMMY! I'm so glad my starter isn't ruined!





I feel the need to say that my kids NEVER get a whole cin roll! This was a photo op. After they took 2 bites each they had to give it back. Isn't that sad? They sure did enjoy their 2 bites though! Later tonight they each got a half and they'll get the other half in the morning. They're probably having sweet cinnamon roll filled dreams right now!

WOW, my mouth is watering now! And, yes, my grandma makes her cinnamon rolls the exact same way! I didn't know there was any other way to cut them! Glad your starter wasn't ruined too!
