Baking Joy

This is my youngest granddaughter touching bread dough for the first time.  
"Grandma, I love you!  It is so soft!"
She was absolutely enthralled with the feel of the dough
and I was the lucky recipient of all that enthusiasm. 

Take no notice of the chocolate face


"I get to paint egg on dough?"

Sprinkling cinnamon, sugar and pecans. Raisins nixed.

Roly poly.  

She found cutting the dough with dental floss quite fun.

And then her mom came.  I quickly threw the buns in a pan and sent them to be baked at their house.  I never dreamed she would enjoy making cinnamon rolls so much.   She's baked many things with me but I have never seen this reaction before. 


  1. She's adorable! I can see now that the pink rolling pin is hers! :)

  2. I love your baking-with-grandma posts. And the pink rolling pin is such a great find!

  3. She's adorable. What a lovely baking memory the two of you created :)
    Btw, I responded to your question on my blog.

  4. That first photo is precious. I love what your granddaughter said to you. You have a baking genius in the works I think :).
