So simple and literally nothing to do except buy and install. This idea uses two toilet paper roll hangers and a matching towel rack. The toilet paper roll hangers are face in opposite directions for design aesthetics. The towel rack has small s hooks added to rod to allow for necklace display. Very cool and super easy – we like that the best!
This is just such a great idea – and can be made small for personal servings or large to accommodate holding eggs or other special breads to serve with your Easter dinner…. and not as hard as you believe.
Start by covering a oven safe bowl with two layers of foil. With dough rolled out and cut into strips you will make a basket as shown on the outside of the bowl. Place a braided row at the top. Make an additional braided row for the handle. Bake following instruction for your bread recipe allowing some room to give and take.
You can cook regularly or wash the outside of basket with egg wash to give a deep golden color.
These are made from raw dinner roll dough that can be purchased frozen or made from scratch. Kneed into a dome shape and snip two ears with scissors as shown in our picture above. Poke two holes for eyes and a hole for the nose with tip of shape knife. Coat with egg wash and bake. Make sure to get egg coating around ears and into eye and nose sockets – this prevents them from filling in as the dough rises.
Creative and perfect for Easter – or anytime you want to make a child smile at the dinner table.
Unroll and spread 1 of the cans of crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish (or 8 x 8 if you want to cut the recipe in half). Combine softened cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Spread over crescent roll layer. Unroll and layer remaining crescent rolls over cream cheese layer. Melt your butter and spread over top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar.
Bake for 20-30 minutes in 350 degree oven until bubbly and slightly browned. Drizzle with a little honey if you like. Let cool a bit, slice and eat.
ADDITIONAL: Consider adding some fresh fruit puree like strawberries, raspberries etc. For the chocolate lover add chocolate syrup or cut up candy bars or chocolate chips. Think of crushed nuts and caramel? How about a drizzle of maple syrup with a sprinkle of brown sugar? Just add your favorite ingredient before adding the top layer of crescent and bake as directed. Also, the filling can have some food dye placed into it to add a festive design for a special holiday!
