The Davis family headed up to the Appalachian Trail a few weeks ago for a day hike. It was a great day. This was the only picture that we have of the 4 of us from that day. It was our attempt at a selfie. (he, he, he)
These are some better pictures of our day on the trail.
What do I need before I head out for a hike on the Appalachian Trail? A backpack? A great pair of hiking boots? A water bottle? No. No. No. This girl needs a great - energy boosting - breakfast of course and a camera.
Cream Cheese Frosted Cinnamon Rolls
1 (7 g) package dry yeast
1 cup (237 ml) whole milk, warm
1/2 cup (100 g) granulated sugar
1/3 cup (75 g) margarine (or 80% margarine 20% butter spread)
1 teaspoon (8 g) salt
2 large eggs
3-1/4 cups (410 g) all-purpose flour
3/4 cup (105 g) bread flour
For the Filling:
1 cup (220 g) packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons (36 g) ground cinnamon
1/3 cup (75 g) butter, melted
For the Frosting:
1/2 cup (114 g) cream cheese, softened 30 mins
1/2 cup (114 g) margarine, softened 30 mins
1-3/4 cups (220 g) powdered sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla flavor
Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size, about 1 hour.
For the Filling: In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Bake in 400°F on rack just above center, for about 10 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool on cooling rack and gently place into airtight container when cool.
These rolls didn't last long in this house.
So after we fueled our bodies with cinnamon rolls, we headed out for our hike. Not your average pre-hike meal but I think the extra sugar helped carry me through the last few miles.
