It’s been a really, really long winter. For everybody, not just here, we know. After the grueling marathon of holiday baking we put ourselves through every year, come January, we need a hiatus from the oven for the sake of our sanity and waistlines. However, by February, we start getting enough spring-like days to break up the winter weather, which means enough time has passed to forget about the holidays and we let the mixers come out of retirement. But not this year, no – winter has been cruel, which has prolonged the absence of baking.
But no longer! We’ve had 3 glorious days of sun and temps touching the 70s, so it’s officially baking season again, and inspiration is everywhere. Sunshine, Sunday, rhyming… cinnamon buns were calling out. Specifically, Christina Tosi’s amazingly tasty recipe from her Milk Bar Life cookbook.
There are some fantastic photos on the camera of these beauties right when they came out of the oven and had the icing melting oh so perfectly over them, but apparently the long, cold winter is making the camera not cooperate, and the photos are going to stay locked up there for now. So, in true Crying and Baking fasion, we’ve taken a crummy phone photo of the now cold and missing-two-because-we-thought-we-had-already-documented-them-perfectly-and-went-ahead-and-ate-some buns. There was yelling at the camera and eating yet another cinnamon bun to get over it, but we moved on. Promise.
