Peanut Butter Yeast Rolls

My family requested chili at 4 o'clock in the afternoon!  I usually like to cook chili all day.  Either simmering on the back burner of the stove or in a crock pot.   I always have some sort of bread when I cook chili.  It's not a stable at suppertime in our home but with chili, yeah, it is.  Cornbread, garlic bread, white bread even.  Surprisingly, this is great with a big bowl of chili!  It's hearty with a peanut butter taste that isn't overwhelming.  These make a great school lunch or snack after school.  Just warm up and you have the taste of a peanut butter sandwich without the gooey mess.


Peanut Butter Yeast Rolls

4 to 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons dry active yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup peanut butter

Stir together 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 3 Tablespoons yeast and 1 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
Heat milk and water to 110 degrees and pour into flour mixture.
Add peanut butter and stir, adding enough flour to make a soft dough.
Put dough on a well floured surface and knead, adding more flour as needed, for 4-6 minutes or until it is smooth and elastic.  I used just shy of 4 cups.
Pat into a rectangle and cut into equal squares. Although, mine weren't and usually never are.  It's just something that everyone tells you to do.  ~wink~
Now, run over and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and then..
Grease a 9x13 pan.
Put uneven, I mean, even pieces of cut dough on in pan.  Let rise in a warm, draft free place until double in size, 30 - 45 minutes.  I waited 30 and they were at the top of the pan.  I had to get them in the oven before the storm came.
Once doubled in size, cook for 10 minutes, turn pan and cook another 7-10 until done and lightly brown on top.  I can never really tell about bread being done.  I took mine out when they were light brown and they were done at 18 minutes.
Eat them right away if you want the taste of a warm peanut butter sandwich.  Oh, the microwave chili recipe will be posted soon.

PB&J on toasted Peanut Butter Yeast Roll...Yeah, It's Good!
Enjoy!
Love and Hugs!

Stuffed Soft Pretzel Bites

I love soft pretzels and thought I would try my hand at making them from frozen dough.  Super easy and fun!  I stuffed them with everything!  Chocolate chips, colby/jack cheese, hot dogs, rolos, broccoli and cheese,  and even chocolate chip cookie dough.  Yes, I did!  ~smiles~  Only thing was....they got mixed up and I didn't know what was in each one!  LOL  We had fun guessing and biting into each one.  It was like a box of chocolates.  You just don't know what you are getting until you dive in and take a bite out of it.  And, just like chocolates...you have to eat what you get.  ~smile~  Mix yours up too, for a little added fun!  Enjoy!

Sausage Rolls

An easy make ahead breakfast or after school snack.  Two ingredients and you are set!  Great for appetizers while watching football with spicy or honey mustard.

Sausage Rolls

1 bag frozen yeast rolls
1 package, 10-12 brown n serve sausage links
(double the sausage if you are leaving the sausage whole)

Thaw rolls as directed.
Thaw sausage and cut in half.

Once thawed, stretch dough to make a circle.
Place sausage half inside. 
You can also leave sausage whole, stretch and wrap around.

Roll up and tuck ends over top, flip over and place in greased 13x9 pan. 

If cooking at a later time, spray tops, cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator.  Get out in the morning and let them set, and come to room temperature, while your oven is preheating.  Cook as below. 

If cooking now...let double in size. Then place in preheated 350 degree oven and cook for 7 minutes, turn around.  Cook another 5 minutes and check.  These need to be a little dark to cook throughout.  15-18 minutes should be good.
As always, My oven cooks different than yours.  Check before earliest time and adjust time accordingly.

Top with butter and serve.  <3 and Hugs!

Cinnamon Roll Flower

My Boys wanted Cinnamon Rolls the other day and I wanted to try something different.  So...I got out a tube of grand size biscuits, made icing and cinnamon sugar.  Fixed up the the pieces for My Boys and this is what the result was.  Very good!  A crispy outside and yummy delight inside.  A bit of icing and cinnamon sugar in every bite!  Hope you like it and have fun making them!  ~hugs~

Cinnamon Roll Flower

1 tube of grand size biscuits
2 cups powdered sugar
(I used 2 cups powdered sugar for the ones pictured on the bottom.  The pieces were fatter,  easier, and stickier,  for My Boys to handle.  ~smiles~
I used 1/2 cup powdered sugar for thinner icing....1st photo)
2 Tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Grease muffin pan

Make Powdered Icing by mixing the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla (optional).  It will be thick...to thin, just add a drop of milk at a time.  Set aside

Make Cinnamon Sugar by mixing the cinnamon and brown sugar together.  Any left over keeps well in a zipper type plastic bag.

Stretch the biscuits out, not to thin. 
Spread icing on one biscuit, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. 
Top with another biscuit that is also topped with icing.  Seal edges. 
Cut into strips, then into shapes, sealing edges. 
Grease hands a tad.  Start with a piece to fill the bottom of the cup. 
Put strips around the sides and work you way up.  Use triangle shapes to resemble a flower or other fun shapes.

Makes 5 so you may want to double the recipe.

Bake for  12-16 minutes

First picture was made using thinner icing.  Either use less powdered sugar or more milk.   

Enjoy!

*I'm thinking easy here....Why not use a tube of cinnamon rolls, stretch, put icing  on, fold over, seal, and create!* 

I'd Love to see pictures of the ones you and your children make!  ~hugs~

This one was made with thin icing,



Boys made these...sticky fun!
