Whether you are team PEEPS or not, you have to admit they are a sweet staple for Easter. Here is a clever way to enjoy these sweet marshmallow treats.
-Refrigerated pie crust
-1/2 tbs of butter
-Strawberry preserve (or you can do Nutella)
-Royal icing for decorating
Cut out 5X3 rectangles out of the pie crust dough. I created a rectangle template with a piece of paper. You can also roll out the scraps. It is two rectangles per pop tart. I was able to make 5 pop tarts with one box of pie crusts.
In a bowl place a handful of PEEPS with a little bit of butter and microwave for 20-30 seconds.
Of the rectangles that you made place half of them on a parchment line baking sheet and preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Spread strawberry preserve on the pop tarts and if you want you can also do Nutella instead to make S'mores pop tarts. Then place the melted PEEPS on top of the spread. Lastly place another rectangle piece of dough on top and then pinch all four sides closed with a fork.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and turn the pan half way through.
Once the pop tarts are cool completely decorate with some royal icing and even sprinkles if you want.
I actually really enjoy making homemade bagels. It is really quite simple and they come out very delicious. I have made rainbow bagels and even pumpkin spice bagels(recipes on my blog). I wanted to make some green bagels for St. Patrick's Day, This is such a fun breakfast that you can make for the kids.
-1 1/2 cups of water
-green food coloring
-4 cups of bread flour
-1 tbs of instant yeast
-tbs of brown sugar
-2 tsp of salt
In measuring cup mix the water and green food coloring. In a large bowl mix all of your dry ingredients and then add your green water. Mix well and add flour as you knead the dough until it forms into a large ball. Grab another bowl and coat the inside with non-stick cooking spray and then place the dough in that bowl, cover and allow the dough to rise for an hour.
Pull apart about 8 pieces of dough and roll into balls. Cut a hole through the center of the dough ball and spread it out so that it looks like a ring. Next preheat your oven to 425 degrees. While the oven is warming up, boil the bagels in water for just 1 minute or so. Then place the bagels on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake the bagels for about 20-25 minutes in the oven.
