So, on the PW recipe she suggested letting the dough rest overnight, which I did. I woke up still kidless on Sunday morning and finished up the recipe. Here's the play by play...
Melt some butta n stuff!
Waiting for a scald... it's like waiting for water to boil... but worse... you have to actually watch it.
The "rested" dough
Roll that puppy out!!
Uh forgot to take a pick of my lemon sugar... but there it is on the dough!!!
Add some blue berries! I had to add less otherwise Jasmine wouldn't eat any...
Make a log and seal it up
Cut and smash it in a pan..then cut and smash again...
While it's in the oven, make the glaze. This is where I failed.
Mine was WAY to thin because I added to much milk
O - M - G... Amazingness.
And then add some glaze... and obviously I couldn't wait to eat it...
Overall... easy recipe. And amazing taste. Ultimately - Jasmine wouldn't eat any because of the blueberries but that's OK. My butt will just get bigger - and I'm OK with that for now.
Go try this recipe. You won't be disappointed. PLUS she has alternatives including a marmalade one that may be my next attempt on sweet rolls.
So if that wasn't enough. After I picked up Jasmine, We watched Food network all day and I search Pinterest for crafty things to do. I came across this gem:
Jasmine has A TON of broken crayons - so i figured... why not. And here's my version:
This was by far the most tedious part... removal of the paper. Be prepared for wax under your nails that will take forever to get out.
We decided to sort by color type - but you could mix it up for some cool efects
Put it in the oven on your lowest temp and let them melt!
After it cools, pop them out of your mold and enjoy the amazingness!
Happy New Years to you all!!! Be safe!
