Little Dutch Girl Tea towels!

New in the shop! These little redwork dutch girl hand embroidered tea towels turned out so sweet! Grama....again, thank you, your an amazing lady! They are from monday through Saturady, as the vintage pattern had no sunday design.
Thanks so much to Marika at http://www.marikabel.splinder.com/ for being so excited about these & wanting to turn them all into cross stitch patterns! Keep your eyes out for the other ones to come!
I also wanted to offer everyone a free sample of the healthy chocolate, and some info in the mail if you like!(see previous post). See previous post for link & information-Im totally addicted!
These are just a sweet little set of vinatage cream & sugar dishes I found at a thrift store, they were in such wonderful condition, I couldnt pass them up! **** Also for those of you who asked questions about the yeast in the previous cinnamon bun recipe(sorry there was no return email address/blog) 1 Tablespoon=1 square package & you can use regular or quick rising yeast, you may just have to give a few extra hours for rising time:) Hope that helps & let me know if you try them!
for now....

The Best Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese Icing

Or so my husband & kids says! I struggled for years to find the best recipe that wasnt yeasty tasting , and that had my favorite cream cheese icing! Try it & report back to me,its so easy!
1/2 c. really warm water
2 tea sugar
1 T. Quick rising yeast
(Mix & leave for 10 Min)
1 Egg
1/2 C. Sugar
1 T. Salt
1 C. Warm milk
1 Cup boiling water
2 Cups white flour(brown does not work well)
(Combine well in mixer with dough attachment, then pour in yeast mixture)
Gradually Add slowly 3 1/2 Cups of flour to dough mixture. Take out & put onto a very well floured surface. Knead a couple times, put into large mixing bowl that has been greased well, & let rise until its really big, at least double in size. Make sure its a warm area & set aside.
When doubled, flour area again very well, punch down and knead a couple times. Roll out into the biggest rectangle you can get*(thin but not ripped). Spread on 1/2 cup ,melted butter, and sprinkle heavily with cinnamon. Crumble on 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar evenly.
Roll up and stretch lengthwise. You should be able to cut at least 12-16 slices .
Place in greased glass baking dish (i like to use glass). I find the metal ones burn everything. You can also use 2 smaller ones.
Let rise again until buns are big & totally filling pans.
bake at 375 degrees or 25-27 minutes.
let cool.
Cream cheese Icing:
1/2 block cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 tea vannilla
Beat for a couple minutes and spread on thick..... Enjoy! Dont hesitate to ask me if you have any questions, they are really easy! The hardest part is waiting for them to cool to put the icing on, so you can eat one!
