A Snowy Day with Cinnamon Buns

Hello!  A snowy day in the Yukon we're having and there is so much to be thankful for!  

First, Now there is lots of snow for the kids to go sliding on, I also love walking through the soft fluffy snow.  It feels so fresh and new outside with a fresh covering of white. :)  The river is starting to close up more and more and the snow has covered over all the frozen overflow areas and it looks so bright even on our overcast days.  I love to hear it's gurgling sounds as I walk by.

 What would be better than having cinnamon buns when you come in from a long time sliding?  I was making bread and decided to make cinnamon buns as well.  One batch is just cinnamon and brown sugar of which I added an orange glaze to.  Second was a batch made with cinnamon, brown sugar and apples of which I added a regular vanilla glaze to.  Yum!

I've never been one to have perfectly portioned cinnamon buns, so I just cut straight through a section to portion it out mostly. I just use bread dough for my cinnamon buns and then they're not too sweet...I like them that way.  Plus I don't have to make a special dough either.  Adding the apples to the one makes it taste like an apple fritter.

Do you like winter?  Do you like cinnamon buns?  Do share what is your favourite kind?  

Thank you for stopping by and taking time out of your day to visit!

Beautiful picture! I do love snow as long as I don't have to drive in it! ;)
We are suppose to be getting snow here for the next few days. I'm hoping we get a good amount, we sure could use it! Plus the boys want to play in it too.
I love cinnamon buns of all kinds! I've been playing around with gluten free flours and I made a delicious batch last week, plus it doesn't take yeast! So no waiting for them to rise! Yay!
I hope your week is a delightful one!!
Hugs to you,

Cinnamon Buns!! Winter, not so much. I prefer Fall and Spring, even though where I live we hardly even have a winter... Maybe it's the absence of it, why I don't like it much!?!
The Buns look delicious!
