Miss Doodle 2 wants to Prepare the Fat Tuesday Dinner…
FAT BURRITOS are on the MENU. Her Special Recipe.
While we eat the meal, the ICE KING CAKE will Melt revealing the BABES.
A BABE for Each of Us for Good Luck for the Year!
And as a Secret…I’m making a Tiny King Cake from my last package of Crescent Rolls and leftover ready-made pie crust…
Here goes…6 Simple Ingredients that You Hopefully have on hand:
Cream Cheese. Brown Sugar. Cinnamon. Raisins. Apple Pie Filling. Crescent Rolls (2 packages). Pie dough (to fill in if you don’t have enough crescents).
Mix Together – cream cheese, sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and apple pie filling.
Unroll the crescent roll triangles. And/or cut the pie dough into triangles.
Arrange the triangles in a ring in the center of the baking sheet – like the sun. Large side of the triangle overlapping each other, with points spreading out from the center.
Spread filling around in the ring center.
Pull pointed ends of the triangles towards the center. Tuck in the triangle points to enclose the filling.
BAKE 20 to 25 minutes or until Golden Brown.
Remove from oven. Sprinkle with sugar or icing. Add Colored Sugar – Purple (for justice), Green (for faith) and Gold (for power). Slip in the baby (Baby Jesus) just before serving.
Last Year’s King Cake was Store-bought…and honestly, not very good.
Not Sure this is Going to Work…But I’m ready for a Go!
Happy Fat Tuesday 2021!
Whoops…I Said FAT TUESDAY….NOT CAT TUESDAY! 🙂
We All Need Some Silly. Right?!
