Bits & Pieces #4: Easter Food, etc.
Hi friends! It's been a while since I've done a Bits and Pieces post.
Can you believe it's Easter weekend?
I'm still not sure what I'm making for Easter dinner. Maybe we'll have our family yearly Easter picnic on Sunday instead of Saturday like we usually do. We usually eat these favorite foods every Easter.
I know I'll be making these bunny rolls sometime.
These bunny ear rolls (or bunny tails, depending on how you look at them) are really easy to make with my one hour roll dough. Just make a ball for the middle and stretch some dough around for the ears/tail.
Sometimes I wonder what I would do with my time if I didn't love to bake. Decorate? Garden? Shop? Clean my house? Finish the laundry? Read a book?
Since I enjoy baking, I've been making a lot of treats lately to share with others for refreshments or just a little treat. Here are a few of my favorites...
Glazed Lemon Cookies -- the perfect spring cookie, bursting with lemon. Love them!
Scotcharoos -- I like to make these when I need a treat for a crowd. Too dangerous to make a big pan of them just for my family. They disappear too fast.
I blogged about these in December, but since then I talked to my sister-in-law, Annelisa, and found that I'd been making them wrong. I'd been adding extra flour to make the dough more stiff. She told me that it's supposed to be kind of "brownie batter like". You chill the dough and then it scoops nicely with a spoon. No extra flour needed. I updated the recipe post.
All righty...I could go on about food all day. But I better get busy.
