Caramel rolls and Christmas

I realized that I never post about food or cooking and it's probably what I love the most and where I get the most feedback. I can please more people with my cooking than I can with my mosaics or drawing on glass, no one ever feels afraid or intimidated commenting on my cooking and I can tell if they like it even if they don't tell me because they get seconds and thirds. Most of the time no comment is made about my art I am sure this is due to a feeling of not understand rather than displeasure....

 Last night I started some lovely brioche dough, I always forget how long this process takes. I had to get up once during the night to gently punch it down (before santa arrived!)
And roll it between layers of butter this morning (luckily for me my kids woke me up at 6:30!) so I had plenty of time to work on it while they were absorbed in their new toys. It took all of 20 minutes for the children to finish off the pan after only 15 hours of minor labor... They liked them! I was very pleased with their beauty and the multiple layers of very thin dough, teaming with butter and caramel and yes they were tasty. Thank you Julia Child!
