Your Kitchen Friends
Our guests often ask for recipes from the Latigo Ranch kitchen.  We plan to post a new recipe here regularly. 

Lisa searches for recipe ideas and often finds new recipes to try, and if we like them, Randy experiments to figure out how to make them work when preparing them for 30+ guests.  Sometimes what we end up with is quite different from the original  and other times we make little change.  

Since most of you don't live at 9,000 ft. above sea level like we do, we have adjusted the recipes for baked goods for low altitude.  If you do need to correct for higher altitudes, please feel free to email us for suggestions.

Enjoy your cooking, eating, and friendship around the table.

Recipe of the Week

Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns

Sunday, October 12, 2008

2 T yeast
½ C warm water  

4 eggs
1 C canola oil
1 C pumpkin
1 C warm milk
½ C sugar
½ C brown sugar
1/3 C instant vanilla pudding mix
1/3 C instant butterscotch pudding mix

1 t salt
7-8 C flour

Filling:  1 T butter melted, 1 C brown sugar, 2 t cinnamon

Icing:  3 T water, 2 T butter, 1 t cinnamon, 2 C powdered sugar, 1 ½ t vanilla

Let the yeast and warm water proof until bubbly. Then mix the eggs, oil, pumpkin, milk, sugars, and pudding mixes together with the yeast until smooth. Add the salt and flour gradually until dough is elastic. Let the entire mixture rise until doubled, then roll it out into a long rectangle. Spread with filling, roll up, cut into rolls, and place in a pan or on a baking sheet. Spray, cover, and let it rise again. Bake them until they are done. Then drizzle the icing on them when they’ve cooled.  This recipe should yield at least two dozed big rolls.
