Gingerbread Sweet Rolls with Cranberry Compote

This is a special post and it’s the start of something new here. Now that my food blog is out of retirement, it basically means I need to start playing catch up. There are several recipes we need to enjoy from many of the Man Card Series.

We’ll enjoy them soon. I promise. For now, we need to celebrate Man Card Book 13 with Aiden’s special sweet roll recipe that won over Cora’s heart in My Gingerbread Man.

When I started writing the short story, I did what I’ve always done and mentioned a recipe. The difference between this book and the recipe- when I would write gingerbread sweet rolls, I wanted one. Then I realized if I wanted one of those delicious rolls, someone else would want one, too.

Guess what I did? I pulled my special pumpkin sweet roll recipe out of the vault and changed it up. Instead of pumpkin and a few other ingredients, we would enjoy gingerbread additions in each element of the new recipe. It took a full day prepping but y’all, it worked. Look!

Better yet, my hubby loved the recipe.
