Fountain Acre Foods is about an hour away from where I live, which means it’s the closest Amish bakery to me, which probably by geographic default makes it one of my favorite:) I had the good fortune of stopping by Fountain Acres the other day (bad fortune, if you’re my diet). Take a look at these gorgeous pies. The store, which is celebrating its sixth year in business, has really ramped up its bakery offerings. The store also has an expanded deli counter for sandwiches on the go. The business is run by Stevie and Mary Anne who moved to this new Amish settlement between Richmond and Fountain City, Indiana. Those pies look amazing and unfortunately I’ve never met a pie I didn’t like and even worse, I’ve never met a cinnamon roll I didn’t enjoy. And I enjoyed this one! This was a caramel frosted cinnamon roll – before I devoured it – which was about the size of a small melon. Here is Lovina’s recipe, by the way, for quick caramel frosting which you can use to make your own caramel cinnamon rolls.
QUICK CARAMEL FROSTING
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. milk
2 cups powdered sugar (or as needed)
In a saucepan combine the brown sugar, butter, and milk, heat over low heat till just boiling. Stir immediately and then remove from the heat. Let cool completely.
Thicken the frosting with powdered sugar to your desired consistency.
