yukon gold fever

the march issue of Bon Appétit Magazine featured a recipe for cinnamon rolls using yukon gold potatoes. the picture looked mouthwatering so i decided to try them out.

overall verdict....definitely worth the time and preparation. the recipe says it makes 12 cinnamon rolls, but i ended up getting around 3-4 dozen and they were very thick. the potatoes make the dough moist and tender. you can't even tell that half the dough is potatoes. once they came out of the oven, they had disappeared that quick. i will definitely make those again!

for the recipe, visit here.

I'm so glad you posted this! I have been wanting to try a recipe for cinnamon rolls that calls for 6cups of mashed potatoes, but I have been a little nervous. I think I'll try them this weekend!

Miss ya! I love being able to hear what you're up to via your blog. And I still am totally a lame friend that needs to call you. We are seriously over-due for a chat. And that is 100% my fault. Believe it or not, I am terrible about keeping in touch by phone!!!

It really helps a lot of children around the world. I like cried when I heard people's stories.

Hi Miss R...my fav cinnamon rolls had potatoes in them, but I lost the recipe. I love Bon Appetit...mmm. OK, so Rachel...check your work schedule, girl. I have a song I want you to come and record. I don't have my to-die-for microphone yet or anything, but I want to get a rough recording of this one...we can use my Snowball mic. I am transcribing it this week. I will send you the words and the rough music this weekend, and then maybe you could come this next week sometime and do a little recording of it??? I'll make you food...wash your car...you name it, and I'll do it!
