Pizza Rolls

Another recipe to use up some leftover bread dough. My sister told me about these. She said that she had a friend that would use Rhodes rolls, make pizza rolls, freeze them and then she would have a quick and easy snack for later. I thought that sounded like a great idea! I got these made and was going to freeze them, but didn't have anything else planned for we ate them for dinner instead. They were a huge hit. I served them with some homemade marinara. MMM!!

Pizza Rolls
  • leftover bread dough
  • string cheese
  • pepperoni (optional)
  • dipping sauce

Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Wrap a piece of bread dough around a piece of string cheese(cut into half or thirds) and pepperoni. Pinch closed. Place on greased baking sheet. I brushed mine with an egg wash(egg white + 1 teaspoon water) and then sprinkled with garlic sauce. Bake at 350 until lightly brown. Eat, or cool then freeze.

Snakmaster Apple Pie Turnover

I LOVE my Snakmaster. It was my Grandma's. I always loved it and when she passed away I got it. I use it a lot to make hot sandwiches. My kids really like pizza sandwiches from the Snakmaster. The other day...when I was canning apple pie filling I made my kids a quick, yummy treat!! They LOVED it and so did I! If you don't have a Snakmaster I would definitely recommend getting one.

Snakmaster Apple Pie Turnover
  • 2 slices bread (I used whole wheat)
  • apple pie filling
  • powdered sugar
  • milk

Directions: Using a rolling pin(or your hands) flatten you bread. Butter one side of each piece of bread. Place butter side down in the snakmaster. Place a spoonful of apple pie filling in each side of the bread(each triangle section). Top with the other piece of bread, butter side up. Mix some powdered sugar with a little milk to make a glaze. When the 'turnover' is finished cooking place on a plate and drizzle with the powdered sugar glaze.

Does any of this make sense? I hope so:)

Monkey Muffins - with apple pie filling

This WONDERFUL recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman. These are SO yummy!! I used the white bread recipe that I posted last. The last time I made these I added some apple pie filling in with the balls of dough before I let them rise. I was canning apple pie filling and applesauce a couple of weeks ago and decided to try some of the apple pie filling in these and it was so good!! I got the apple pie filling recipe here. Yum!! If you like apple pie filling...try this!!

Monkey Muffins

Leftover Bread Dough (or Refrigerated Biscuit Dough, Cut Into Thirds)
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Sweetened, Condensed Milk

Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add 1/2 teaspoon butter to muffin tins. Sprinkle in sugar and cinnamon.
Roll dough into walnut sized balls (or cut refrigerated biscuit dough into thirds). Place three into each muffin tin.
Top with 1/2 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle on more sugar and cinnamon. Allow dough to rise, if applicable, or just go ahead and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle plenty of sweetened condensed milk over the top of each one. Be generous! Allow rolls to sit for a little while to absorb the sweet, sticky milk.

If you want to add the apple pie filling, chop the pie filling and add in with the rolls of dough. Repeat the other steps as described above.

The pictures above are not made in muffin tins, but little ceramic Christmas ornament dishes that I bought from Micheal's last Christmas season. I thought I had taken pictures the the 'muffins' I had made, but...guess not.

White Bread

This white bread recipe is from one of my wonderful MILs (Ava). This makes super light and super yummy bread!! I almost forgot to take a picture again last time I made bread. This loaf is actually one that had been in the freezer. I should have gotten a picture of a fresh loaf, it probably would have been prettier:)

White Bread

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 T. salt
  • 6 cups hot water
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 1/2 T. yeast + 1t. sugar (dissolved in 1/2 c. warm water)
  • 20 or more cups flour

Directions: Dissolve sugar and salt in hot water. Add oil and evaporated milk to cool. Add yeast(sugar added to dry yeast helps it work). Add eggs. Add about 10 cups of flour, mix well and let rest ~10 minutes. Add flour until the right consistency, a soft dough...not too sticky. Knead very well or mix in bread mixer for several minutes. Let rise in large bowl until about double(only once). Put in pans or make rolls or cinnamon rolls. Raise until double. Bake at 350 until golden brown. Butter tops of bread or rolls. Frost cinnamon rolls. When I make this bread, it makes 7 loaves.
