cinnabon + auntie anne's pretzels (MoFo 8)

Today we are hitting the sweet spots. Not only is the cookbook giveaway Sinfully Vegan by Lois Dieterly, but to kick it off we are making Cinnabon's HUGE cinnamon roll and Auntie Anne's Pretzel.

Both are made with a sweet dough and both are gigantic. Here are two more reasons that getting a bread maker is smart, it is not just for whole wheat bread and seitan! So if ever you see a great buy on a bread machine, do yourself a favor.

The Cinnabon bakes up at three and a half inches on each side and three inches tall. Oh, yeah! Filled with brown sugar and cinnamon, this is one of those treats that is a pain to walk past in malls, but walk we must since they contain eggs and dairy. Now put your boots on because we are walking all over Cinnabon - right up to the oven to grab one of these delectable, gooey sweets. Pop the dough in your bread machine and when it has risen, roll out, sprinkle with the filling, roll up and cut large. 

Auntie Anne's Pretzels dough is just as easy: throw the ingredients in your machine, when it has risen, roll the dough into 8 - three feet long ropes. Dip in baking soda water, spray with oil and bake for 10 minutes. These beauties bake up to be almost six inches wide. Couldn't be easier. Or tastier. At least I think they were since they were all gone by the time I was done in the kitchen.
