I used a butterhorn recipe(recipe below) to make several different options.
lb taco meat
1 3/4 c shredded cheddar cheese
Roll out butterhorn dough to form a thin rectangle. Mix the meat and cheese and spread over the dough. Roll up and fold the ends underneath. Slice into 1 1/2 to 2 inch pieces. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 15 to 20 minutes on 350.
I also made Pizza Bites
To make these, you roll out the butterhorn dough and cut into squares. On one of the squares place 1 or 2 pepperonis and a piece cut from a cheese stick( you can get 5 or 6 pieces out of 1 cheese stick).
Next, you will fold the 2 sides over to cover the cheese.
Then take the ends and fold underneath.
Place on a baking sheet and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes on 350.
You could put the pizza sauce in before you bake but my girls love to have the sauce on the side. I think it is so much cooler to have it on the side at school. Laney came home the first day after having these and said the whole class was drooling.
* After baking, I did add a little parmesan to the top for extra flavor.
I also made pigs in the blanket using the dough. Sorry I do not have any pictures for these. I took lil wieners, wrapped them up in a snugly warm blanket of dough and baked them for 15 - 20 minutes on 350.
2 tbl dry yeast
1/3 c warm water
9 c flour (I used whole white wheat)
2 c warm milk
1 c butter melted
1 c sugar
2 tsp salt
In large bowl dissolve yeast in water. Add 4 c flour, milk, butter, sugar, eggs and salt. Beat 2 minutes or until smooth. Add remaining flour to form soft dough. Turn onto floured surface and knead lightly. Place in a grease bowl, turn dough once to grease top. Cover and let rise(1-3 hours). Punch down and use in the recipes above.
They are also great to bake up plain for a meal or freeze. To do it this way you will want to divide the dough into fourths. Roll each out to 12 in circles and brush with melted butter. Cut into 8 wedges. Roll up each( like a crescent roll) and pinch to seal. You can freeze them now by placing them on baking sheet to flash freeze overnight. Then the next day place them into freezer bags. When you are ready to use them just thaw(until doubled in size) and bake at 375 until browned. Brush with melted butter.
I love this recipe!
