Trick or Treat!

Looking for some ideas to make Hallowe'en extra-special?  I have just the suggestion for you!  Here's what you do: wake up stupid-early, and think “Hey! Instead of going back to sleep on my day off, I’m going to jump out of bed and make cinnamon buns!” Take your fave cinnamon bun recipe and go to town - feeling very clever that you remembered, pre-coffee, to proof the yeast!

Decide that you want to experiment with a few mods, as follows. Substitute maple sugar for a bit of the white sugar (about 1/4-1/3 of the total amount.) Toast some walnut pieces and let cool. When spreading the usual filling on the rolled out dough, add the walnuts, and sprinkle a bit more maple sugar on, for good measure. Bake, let cool slightly, drizzle with maple cream. (I got a jar at Rhinebeck, just for this purpose!) Enjoy, again and again!
