An Apple a day…

4 Feb

Morning Glamourites!

Okay my title was slightly misleading…yes, I am giving you a recipe with apples in it but it may not be the healthiest of recipes. Guilty. Let’s be honest though, you need a delicious cinnamon bun recipe for the weekend to indulge in! I have been craving them lately and haven’t had any since Christmas break when my Mom made them for the family. I have always been a little nervous to make them by myself from scratch, but from watching my own Mom make them and reading some recipes, they really aren’t that bad. You just need time;  the waiting around to let the dough rise and then the cooking time can be a little annoying. This particular recipe caught my eye because it calls for apples, raisins and walnuts; not sure about the nuts but I love the idea of apple! Give it a try this coming weekend, with or without the nuts, or add your own new ingredient.
