How about warm, fresh from the oven
upside down pecan rolls?
These are from Father's Day at our house.
Alycia was the Adventurous chef
who got up and started at 5:30 am.
The recipe is from a cookbook I received
for a wedding shower gift (30 years ago)-
(My well used and loved copy)
I have never been brave enough to make them-
(there are ALOT of steps) but our friend Patti,
has been making them for years (has same book).
The whole process is quite an undertaking,
bowls, mixing, rising, kneading, rolling and of course
waiting and watching while they bake. The smell
alone is worth it, but the flavors, the texture and the richness
without being sugary sweet is incomparable
to any I've ever had.
(Tartine, eat your heart out)
I have found a recipe to use as a step by step
general guide and I offer this photo of the
ingredients form the book ...
Bottom line, this weekend,
be adventurous, make a mess, enjoy the process...
and fill your kitchen with the smell of something
from the oven.
