Cherry Morning Rolls





Happy Mothers Day!









So I keep calling these cherry cinnamon rolls. But there is no cinnamon in them so they are 'morning' rolls now. Cinnamon rolls are just a broad category to me, with many varieties but if there is no cinnamon but they pretty much are 'cinnamon rolls' what are they called. Oh well, morning rolls it is, I think it sounds nice. 

So I made these just a few hours ago, for my Mother, on this special day, and now I have to run off to work until 8:30 pm. So I will write more on my lunch break about these delicious little rolls. 

So I knew I wanted to make something special for my mom for mothers day. I would normally make a dessert but having to work all day I knew breakfast was my only doable option. So after looking at my different recipes and not finding anything that I fought would be perfect, I thought of cinnamon rolls. Bu a variation of them. Cinnamon rolls at my house are a item that my dad makes every Christmas morning and usually never anytime else. So I though of doing a new take on them, that would be nice for spring. So after much mind wondering I remembered I had read about Bonne Maman preserves and how amazing they were. So I saw the cherry jar and knew that was it. Cherry 'cinnamon' rolls. It was something that would resemble what we all already loved but something special for mothers day. 

I think these rolls turned out very well. I was a bit worried when I cut the log into pieces because it seemed like a lot of juice was running out, but it turned out to be only a little and I could easily just spoon it back in.

So hopefully everyone is having a relaxing Mothers Day and I will have to celebrate it, and my mothers birthday which is tomorrow but I have to work all day, on Wednesday when I can make her a proper feast for the two special occasions which always fall too close together.
Side note, all of these photos were taken with artificial light. And I am shocked my how well it worked out and by how much I kinda love the photos. By artificial light I don't mean some fancy, proper studio lighting. It's just lit by my old ceiling lights in the kitchen which I just diffused a bit. And the reason for the artificial lighting which I normally steer clear of, is that I started the recipe at 9:30 pm! I had just gotten home from work and it was the only time to do it. I knew o had to do the photos, because I could already picture what photos I could do from this recipe. So I tried to kitchen lights and I worked! I'm glad I did because I always feel like I'm totally missing an opportunity when I don't photograph a recipe, even if I do finish making it at nearly 1 am and start it up again at 6am.
