Petite little squirrels come out to play.

Imaginative children enjoy a walk with their friends.

No tree is left standing with out any leaves. So

Go ahead jump for joy because spring is here.

Egg Dying

Egg Salad Crescent Rolls Carrots

  • 1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet*
  • 1 egg (whisked with 1 teaspoon of water to make an egg wash)
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite egg or ham salad
  • 1 bunch of fresh dill or parsley

Special Equipment Needed:

  • pizza cutter or knife
  • 6 metal cream horn molds
  • pastry brush
  • non-stick aluminum foil-lined baking sheet*If you can’t find this product, you can use sheets of puff pastry, or use crescent rolls and pinch all the seams together.
  • Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Unroll the Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet onto a cutting board.  Use a pizza cutter or a knife to cut the dough lengthwise into 6 equal strips. Brush one strip with egg wash.
  • Roll the strip into a 17-18″ long log. I rolled the strip of dough up into a tube and pinched the seam shut. Then I rolled out the dough into a thinner, longer log by pushing and rolling  the log with both hands.
  • Repeat, brushing egg wash onto each dough strip before rolling each into logs.
  • Create 6 logs.
  • Wrap one dough log around each cream horn mold, trying to keep the seam side against the metal mold.
  • Repeat.
  • Be sure your dough does not hang over the open end of the cream horn mold, as it will make it difficult to remove once baked.
  • Bake for 6-8 minutes until golden brown.  I suggest rotating the pan half way through the baking cycle for even browning.
  • Allow carrot crescents to cool for about 5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the cream horn form by holding the carrot in one hand and using the other hand to twist the mold and gently pull it out.
  • Fill each Carrot Crescent with egg salad or ham salad.  Press a few sprigs of dill or parsley into the egg salad for a decorative effect. Your carrots will keep in an airtight container for up to 2 days, but are best served the day they are baked.
  • Fill your carrots just before serving.

Egg Dying

  • Wrapping an Easter egg in textured fabric before dyeing creates an intricate pattern that looks like hand-painting. To get the look, use fabrics such as lace, cheesecloth, or netting. Wrap a square of your chosen fabric tightly around the egg, twist to close, and secure with a rubber band. Dunk the egg in food-safe dye, using the fabric tail as a handle.Easter Egg Tip: For best results, use a new piece of cheesecloth for each egg. Other fabrics can be used multiple times.
