Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes. I added another tag layer to the back of the rosette to write a little note on for my neighbors. To finish it off, I wrapped the bread with rumpled ribbon, added twine to the tag and it was done! I also used brown chalk ink to go around all of the corners and edges of the box.
Here is the recipe for the bread:
Cinnamon Slice Bread (originally from the Rhodes website)
1 loaf frozen bread dough, barely thawed
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
I just mixed milk and powdered sugar to get the consistency of glaze I wanted :)
Slice loaf into 24 thin pieces. Combine the sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Dip each dough piece in the melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar. Line them up in a sprayed 9x5-inch loaf pan, each piece on it's edge, to make a loaf shape (I staggered mine from side to side so there was enough room in the pan). Cover and let double in size. Remove cover and bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes and then place on cooling rack. Combine glaze ingredients and drizzle over warm cinnamon slices.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
