CINNAMON BUNS - GRATITUDE IN A MINUTE EPISODE 56

Make dough night before:  Dissolve 1 TBS yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. then add 1/2 cup cold water.  Let sit for a few minutes.  Then add 5 TBS sugar, pinch salt, 1/2 stick melted margarine or butter and 1 egg.  Mix well.  Add 3 cups flour - mix and then knead  for a few minutes until it feels good - not sticky.  Put into a plastic, zip lock bag - and put in fridge overnight.


In the morning - take out dough, cut it in half.  On a floured surface - use rolling pin to roll out the dough into a circle.  Shmear dough with melted margarine or butter and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar. Cut the circle into 8 pieces - like a pizza. Then roll each section, starting with  the wider part and rolling towards the narrow part.  Put cinnamon bun on a pan with parchment paper - shmear again with melted margarine or butter and sprinkle tops of buns. Let sit for 30 minutes. Then bake at 325 degrees for approx. 25 minutes.  Eat warm and enjoy! 

Blintzes - Gratitude in a Minute Episode 60

Filling:  Mix  three packages of farmers cheese (usually farmer's cheese - but could use substitute ricotta and cream cheese blend), 2 egg yolks, 2 tsp vanilla; a bit of sugar - maybe 1 or 2 TBS.  set aside.  


Crepe:  1 cup milk; 4 eggs, 1 cup flour; 1 tsp salt. Mix all together - no lumps (my grandmother would say).


Fry crepes - thin - in pan.  Turn upside down on a towel or parchment paper.  Put glob of cheese mix in middle.  Fold into a rectangle.  Place back in fry pan and re-fry.  Eat warm with sour cream or strawberries or whatever you like on top

WORDS TO SONG

PSALMS 30

  


יְ-ה-וָ-ה--הֶעֱלִיתָ מִן-שְׁאוֹל נַפְשִׁי;   

חִיִּיתַנִי, מיורדי- (מִיָּרְדִי-) בוֹר.

זַמְּרוּ לַי-ה-וָ-ה חֲסִידָיו;

   וְהוֹדוּ, לְזֵכֶר קָדְשׁוֹ.

כִּי רֶגַע, בְּאַפּוֹ;

   חַיִּים בִּרְצוֹנוֹ:

בָּעֶרֶב, יָלִין בֶּכִי;

   וְלַבֹּקֶר רִנָּה.  


You, Lord, brought me up from hell;
    gave me life from the depths of the pit.

Sing to the Lord, you his righteous ones;
    and give thanks to his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
Weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.
