12 Days of Baking with World Market “9 Ladies Dancing” - Individual Cranberry Orange Ladyfinger Cakes www.pineappleandcoconut.com

Out of all the recipes I create for Cost Plus World Market all year long I look forward to the Christmas Baking recipes. I have so much fun creating and styling these recipes, mostly because I am a huge fan of their Christmas/Holiday entertaining items such as linens, serve, drinking and dining ware. I also love all the different Christmas items to use as props such as snowflake garlands, twinkle lights and snowflakes. As much as I love summer and all things hot, Cost Plus World Market has gotten me to embrace Christmas time more than I ever have before.

Caramel Apple Butter Cinnamon Rolls with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Icing

Caramel Apple Butter Cinnamon Rolls with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Icing www.pineappleandcoconut.com #AD #WorldmarketTribe #Discoverworldmarket

Cinnamon rolls and sweet rolls are most definitely my downfall. I LOVE them. They are so ooey gooey delicious. Perfect for a cold day with a hot cup of coffee. The sugar rush is so worth every last bite. When we lived in Portland, OR, the grocery store near our house, or more like mini mall it was so huge, had a Cinnabon INSIDE the store. Want to know what torture is? Running to the grocery store for a few items when hungry and the second you step into the store you get blasted in the face with the warm, sugary cinnamony aromas of the freshly baked rolls. Never in my life have I shown such restraint and willpower to not buy a Cinnabon roll every time I went grocery shopping. I was sad and happy at the same time when Cinnabon left the store and they replaced it with a photo center. Odd replacement, but my hips thanked me. Too bad I know how to make cinnamon rolls my to my hips dismay.
