valentine lurve: sugar buns
While I don't usually recommend always going to prepackaged something-or-others to satisfy the crafty-bakey-I'm-bored need, this quick fix it kinda too pretty and too yummy, not to. Plus, it is super duper easy. My five (and a half) year old assistant did all the prep-work. On her own.
You will need:
*2 oz cream cheese
*food color (optional)
*1 pack of crescent ROUNDS (breadstick dough would probably work as well)
*bowl, spoon, froster/dull knife
Wash hands! Plop 2 oz of cream cheese into a bowl and set to soften. Add a tablespoon or two powdered sugar and a drop of food color and stir.
Crack open your tin of dough and separate the pieces. Unwind one roll and let yer kidlet go to work.
Spread a layer of the cream cheese mixture on top of the dough.
Dot with chocolate chips. The more the merrier.
Reroll it up all purdy-like
Place on cookie sheet, repeat.
Bake according to package directions (lick the spoon).
Allow to cool and serve up with a cuppa tea, or milky beverage of choice. Don't fergit to lick them fingers. These sweet buns are the BESTEST!
After we finished chowing down, Miss Za had begun planning her next batch of sweet buns. She's thinking maybe some strawberry jam and happy edible flowers might a good combo. I think we have a new adventure ahead of us! How do you roll?
