The Tour of Barns

We helped mom prepare gram's recipe for her Sour Cream Coffee Cake for yesterday's tour of barns.

And we helped mom bake a new recipe that she's never made before.  She found the recipe in our Big Y grocery store's health magazine.
This is the ingredients for Orange Chocolate Hazelnut Pinwheels~~
It's 4 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons chocolate hazelnut spread
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest - our mom also added a wee bit of orange extract because she likes intense orange
1 roll seamless crescent dough

Mix the above ingredients~

And then spread evenly on top of the crescent dough.
Tightly roll up  and wrap in plastic wrap and let chill in the frig for an hour.

 We got to lick the spatula's☺
 Remove roll from frig and discard plastic wrap.  Cut roll with serrated knife, using a back and forth motion, into twelve, 1/4 inch slices.  Lay flat on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 350 degrees for approx 16 minutes. 
 While still warm but not hot, sprinkle powdered sugar over the top. 

 Mom says that we can have that big puffy one with very little filling inside. 

It's Sunday afternoon and we're on our way out to clean up and see what goodies the students left us.
The AireTenacles on the wind sock are calm, Mitch.  They're not going to get you today!

Well, there wasn't a Dunkin Donut to be found, which was a real bummer, but we did find these yummy pretzel sticks~
Yes, please to the watermelon pieces! 
Gram's coffee cake was a huge hit - and the pinwheels, not so much.  

Timber frame class is behind us now and we're very happy to return to our normal routine and have our dad back~~

So until next time...............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

  14. Our Mm thought the pinwheel thingies looked good. None of us like pretzels. If someone gives us one, we take it politely and set it on the floor.

  15. All of those foods sound so GOOD! How do I sign up for class?!?
    Yours sincerely,
