The kind that stick to your ribs, thighs, hips and abdomen.
And sometimes the little jiggly spot under the arms.
My sister was here, providing quality control, and noticed the way I cut the cinnamon rolls. I thought that everybody knew this technique, but she assured me that she had no idea.
Apparently, we're not born with this knowledge.
But I'm sure that you already knew that.
So this is for anyone else who doesn't know how to cut cinnamon rolls without squashing them.
Thank you Erin for letting me teach you something new! Finally!
To cut the rolls, take dental floss and tear off a long piece. Slide it under the roll...
...cross the floss...
Grab the cut piece...
...and lay it in a pie plate of melted butter.
Wha-lah....almost perfect rolls! That crazy looking one on the right was a renegade roll that wouldn't conform for anything. Of course, it was an end piece, but that is no excuse...it knows what it's supposed to do!
Now I need to go convince myself that the smoothie I'll be having for breakfast is way better than these rolls....
