Ok I went to make my cinnamon buns tongiht annnnnnd no milk!!! And the stores are all closed!! will it totally mess up my buns if i use a whole cup of water instead of 1/2 water 1/2 milk??
Do you have any canned milk, such as evaporated milk or powdered milk?
The rolls will be dry and crumbly. The milk gives the dough a softer feel. Sorry that happened. No gas stations or convience stores opened?
nope nothing.... craaaaaaaaap.... oh well.....
Try adding some extra butter if you use the water. It's the milk-fat that makes them tender, and real butter is all milk-fat.
You can purchase whole milk in "juice box" type containers, they have a very long shelf life. My supermarket carries the Borden brand in a red box. They are wonderful and I keep them on hand, you will never run out of milk, once opened they will also last in the fridge for a good long while.
