Tasty Easter Fun with Great Value

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on March 14, 2013

Well it’s time for my final Great Value challenge!  I’ve had so much fun with these four projects–so far I’ve held a Thanksgiving Baking Party, did my Holiday Baking (Dressing Up Sugar Cookies) and enjoyed some Valentine’s Day Treats.  The theme for this final challenge was “Easter/Spring” and we were asked to create something using both Great Value Sugar Cookie Dough and Great Value Crescent Rolls.

I decided that I’ve done enough plain old cookie cutouts with royal icing, as fun and classic as they are.  Instead I’m going to attempt to use the sugar cookie dough to make cookie pops–and then do a quick glaze to dip them in coating (hopefully) the entire cookie.  For some color I’ll sprinkle with, well, sprinkles!

This cookie pop project has simple ingredients–the cookie dough and sticks, and then powdered sugar, corn syrup, and almond extract for the glaze.

For the crescent rolls I thought it would be fun to do a recipe to help use up all those hard boiled eggs we all are left with on Easter morning.  I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of  “Scotch Eggs”.  This is traditional “pub food” in the UK made by wrapping a peeled hard boiled egg in sausage, rolling it in bread crumbs and then deep frying it.  I figured I could come up with a twist on it using crescent rolls.

Talk about super simple–There are only 3 ingredients in this one–hard boiled eggs, bulk sausage, and crescent rolls!

Now off to the kitchen to cook–I’ll share my results (and the recipes) with you next week!

There was an article in the Allrecipe insert in my magazine for those Scotch Eggs! I await your pictures.
