The *only* bad thing about these tasty rolls is…each one has THREE. HUNDRED. CALORIES.

Happy Tuesday, Tryers! This weekend was Easter and let me tell ya, so many tasty treats were demolished. I’m talking mountains of Reese’s Eggs and handfuls of Peeps. Along with the candy, I made a sweet–and super easy–dessert that is sure to please any crowd! (Shout out to theblondcook.com and Pinterest for helpin’ a sistah out!) I made these delicious morsels:

Here’s what you need:

IMG_2842

¼ cup packed light brown sugar

1 teaspoon apple pie spice, and additional apple pie spice (about ¼ teaspoon) for sprinkling on top of crescent rolls

3 tablespoons butter, melted

⅓ cup chopped pecans (I didn’t use these because we have folks with nut allergies)

2 small Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 8 (1/2-inch) slices

2 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Original crescent rolls (I thought I had bought original crescent rolls. Turns out I bought crescent rounds. Ugh. But I was able to make them work!)

 

First, preheat your oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, melt your butter and toss the apple slices around in it.

After that, lay out the crescent rolls on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the brown sugar and spice mixture evenly onto each roll. Then, if you’re using nuts, add those to each roll as well. Next, place apple slices on each roll, starting at the widest end, and roll up.

Brush the crescent rolls with the remaining butter, sprinkle with sugar and spices, and pop them in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

When they’re done, let them cool and dig in!

These were soooooo good, y’all! They would’ve been even better with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on them! I think I’ll be making these A LOT from now on!

Try It Tuesday Cooking Badge 2

Last week, we celebrated January/February birthdays with my entire fam damily. When  I asked Huff the Hubs what he wanted as his “cake” his eyes got really big and he said: “MONKEY BREAD. Like the kind your sister made!”*

I bought all the stuff to make it like my sister, but Huff the Babe ended sleeping 0 hours the night before and unbeknownst to us had a DOUBLE ear infection, so the “monkey bread like Bridget’s” had to be put on hold and the “monkey bread from Pillsbury” stepped in!

Here’s what you need:

IMG_0073

½ cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

2 cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

1 cup packed brown sugar

¾ cup butter or margarine, melted

 

First, preheat the oven to 350. Spray a bundt pan with cooking spray and set to the side. In a gallon size storage bag, pour in the cinnamon and sugar. Then, pop open those biscuit cans and get the biscuits out. Cut them into quarters and toss them into the bag. After that, shake it, girl!

Next arrange the biscuit pieces in the bundt pan.

Then, in a small bowl, mix the melted butter and brown sugar.

Pour it over the biscuits in the pan, pop it in the oven and let it bake for about 28-32 minutes.

Cool it in the pan for about 10 minutes, flip it over, and serve!

The bottom and very top pieces of this were SO good! So nummy! The middle/inner pieces? Not so much. They were super gooey. And I’m a gal that likes gooey cinnamon rolls but this was too gooey.  I didn’t want to burn the other parts, but I wanted the gooey-ness to go away. Anyone have any suggestions for that?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*Yes, I realize this is the second time I’ve posted about monkey bread on this blog. And, it was almost one year to the day of the past post! But, I wanted to add this one because it was a quicker fix than the Rhodes Rolls recipe.

I’m always looking for easy and fun recipes on Pinterest (keyword: easy). Basically if a recipe has less than 5 ingredients and 5 steps, I’m totally on board. And, thankfully, Pinterest delivered!

Here’s what you need:

photo 1

~1 can Pillsbury biscuits

~mozzarella cheese

~pepperoni

 

~a waffle iron

 

First, plug in your waffle iron to pre-heat. Then, pop open the can of biscuits (and try not to scream in terror like I did when the can literally pops) and separate the biscuits. Split the biscuits in the middle, but leave a little “biscuit hinge” like so (It’ll be a lot easier to close up the biscuits and not have all of the stuffing’s fall out):

Sprinkle your cheese and pepperoni (I also put a dash of oregano and garlic powder in there, just so it wouldn’t be so bland). After you’ve place your fixin’s, close up the biscuit and place in your pre-heated waffle iron.

A minute (or so) later, your waffle pizza will be ready to eat!

These things were SOOO tasty! Huff the Hubs said, “Uh, these need to be in the permanent dinner rotation!” Homeboy ate FOUR (and a half)! These would be great for a kid’s sleepover or movie night with the family!
