Sweet filled buns

I did a quick search so as not to clutter this board with redundant posts but only found post about savory filled buns. Here are some pictures and instructions for Swedish-style filled buns. Wrapping the dough around the filling of these is a considerable hassle but the end result is worth the trouble! You'll need: about 2 1/2 cups of flour (you'll need to judge the exact amount by the dough's consistancy), 3/4 cup whole milk, an egg, 5 tablespoons butter, 25 grams cake yeast, 3 tablespoons sugar. (Not pictured, 1 tsp salt) If you've got a powerful mixer you can really just dump all of this in the bowl and mix for about 20 minutes (adding the salt after 10 minutes). After kneading, let the dough rest and rise until doubled in volume (about an hour). Next, assemble your fillings and dump out the dough onto a prepared work surface. I went ahead and did two fillings: applesauce and vanilla creme. Roll the dough out to roughly 1/4 inch thickness and stamp out 3.5 inch rounds. The vanilla creme:

Homemade Moon Pies Recipe While I was doing some research for the jambalaya that I made earlier this week, I also came to find out that Moon Pies are a very traditional part of Mardi Gras. Having never been in New Orleans for the celebration, I had no idea. As it turns out, Moon Pies are typically thrown from the parade floats out to the crowd. Believe it or not, I’ve never eaten a moon pie. I see them in the store all the time, but for some reason it has just never occurred to me to try one. Potatoes Romanoff – A Fancy Twice Baked Potato I’m totally ready for fall. I’m ready for super comforting meals that I get to eat while sitting at home, in my sweat pants, with my slippers on! And I’m ready for Thanksgiving. Too soon perhaps? Considering the fact that it’s still about 80 degrees here in LA, I guess this Potato Romanoff dish will have to do

cookie dough truffles « Oh baby. Oh yes. You can have your dough and eat it too. No raw eggs here. Coconut Chocolate Pudding I have a distinct memory from my childhood of my mother and I buying a coconut with the intention of eating the flesh and coconut milk inside. However, we got it home and sort of looked at each other to see who would make the first move to open it. I assumed that since she was my mother she of course knew all the secrets of the universe and was utterly shocked to discover that neither she nor my step-dad knew what to do. My stepfather, who flew jet planes in Vietnam and assembled my bike on Christmas day, was stumped by this little brown ball in our shopping bag. So, he went for the solution that is apparently obvious to every guy that is met with an obstacle: hit it really hard with a hammer. Which worked…sort of.

Homemade Pork Buns! « I made that! Dear Pork, We meet again. This time things got intense. As per usual I was dabbling in vegetarianism, reading books like “Animal Factory” and “Eating Animals” and having thoughts like “I just can’t keep eating meat”. Homemade Peanut Butter Cups There is absolutely no question about where my heart lies when it comes to candy. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces are it for me. (I know, huge shocker.) Reese’s cups were my favorite Halloween candy as a kid and they were what my Chief Culinary Consultant bought me to celebrate liberation from a quarter-life-peanut-allergy-crisis a couple of years ago.

Arborio Rice Pudding with Raisins If you want a bowl of comfort, simmer up this lush, creamy pudding. As the rice cooks, it absorbs the water from the milk, and the starches thicken the remaining rich milk to a creamy sauce. Raisins are classic for this, but you can also use other dried fruit, like dried blueberries, apricots, cherries, whatever you like best. Ingredients 1 cup arborio rice4 cups whole milk, approximately1/2 cup sugar3/4 teaspoon orange zest1 teaspoon vanilla1/2 cup raisins1/4 teaspoon salt Preparation

Cheesy Florentine Biscuit Cups March 22, 2011 1:37 pm · Posted by Lauren G I looove refrigerated Pillsbury biscuits, mostly because I like popping open the can, but they're also delicious and easy to make. I wanted something different than just your everyday biscuit, so I looked up some recipes on the Pillsbury website. I had most of the ingredients on hand (with a few substitutions) so I chose this one.

Twix Caramel Popcorn Recipe Twix Caramel Popcorn Every Fall we make caramel popcorn, it is a tradition in our house. Over the weekend we were hanging out at home with the baby and watching football. I thought it was the perfect day to bust out a batch of caramel corn, so I asked Josh if he could watch the baby while I went to work. Of course, he said yes:) I decided to surprise him by jazzing up our traditional caramel corn recipe. Healthy Peanut Butter Cups By Karielyn, on February 7th, 2013 Who would believe me if I told you these healthy, vegan peanut butter cups only had 4 ingredients? What, no show of hands? Well, my friends, it’s true. My favorite part about this chocolate and peanut butter combination (other than the fact that it only has 4 ingredients) is that it contains coconut oil and I feel like I almost ~have~ to eat these to get my daily intake of healthy coconut oil. These peanut butter cups are not considered a treat.

Baked Mashed Potatoes with a Creamy Gruyere Topping My friend Donna Natale Mason…what can I say other than that Texas is not nearly as colorful without her? She is a vibrant, loud, gorgeous bit of Texas stomping through the snow in Indiana in red cowboy boots. We were debutantes together in Wichita Falls and she keeps threatening to come back to Texas and have a get together where we all wear our (very small sized yet shockingly poufy) deb dresses and eat lots of food and tell raunchy jokes. Chuckwagon Apple Fritters I’ve been thinking about the Good Humor truck a lot lately. Like, a lot. This happens to me almost every summer. Watermelon Lime Sorbet Slices A sweet and tangy watermelon lime sorbet is a great way to cool off in the summer. As a bonus, this recipe is frozen back in the watermelon rind and cut off into slices. It’s hot. The type of heat where when you step outside the door and your skin is wet before the door swings shut behind you. It’s a hot that hangs in the air, letting you breathe it in, that is cured only by two things: being completely immersed in water or hiding indoors, the air conditioning cranked as far as it will go.I find that the heat makes me very unmotivated to do things like take a walk, water and weed the garden (though I have forced that one on myself) and prepare food and eat it. However, when the promise of cooking provides ice cold watermelon sorbet, I just may be convinced.
