Show Your Stuff #26

It is time for another edition of Show Your Stuff. So go ahead and show off what you are proud to show off. Over the Memorial day weekend I made up some rolls and chocolate chip cookies. The Nutty Sticky Rolls came out of the Better Homes "not-so-new-anymore" New Cook Book. My book is from 1989 and has seen better days, but this means it is a favorite cook book. I also made some really moist and chewy chocolate chip cookies. The secret? I use the Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe for the cookies, and I substituted a box of instant vanilla pudding for the white sugar. Yum!

Show Your Stuff #25 - Butterfinger Cake

It is hard to believe I have doing this for 25 weeks already, thanks to everyone who is participating so far. I am showing off this week a Butterfinger Cake. It is similar to the Butterfinger Dessert, but is a yellow cake on the bottom (box yellow cake) a layer of vanilla pudding (instant box), and crushed Butterfinger on top. I preffered the original Butterfinger dessert, but this was good too.

So link up what you are proud to show off, and make sure you visit other links too.

Lazy Cake Cookies and Never Fail Cookies

 I found two great recipes I wanted to try out, first is the Lazy cake cookies. It just has four ingredients, you can find the recipe here.
I found that the dough was a little dry so I did add a little bit of milk. This turned out good and I might make it again.

The next cookie also uses only four ingredients, I found the recipe here. 
With this recipe the ingredients are giving in grams. It is a good thing I had a scale. If you don't own a scale here is the approximate measurements I used.

Butter - 1 stick
Sugar - 1 cup
Flour - 2 cups
pinch of salt
 I also used an oven temperature of 325 degrees and cooked them for about 12 minutes.

After mixing all the ingredients, I found the dough still a little sticky to roll out so I added a little more flour. I also found this cookie mildly sweet, but still good.

Show Your Stuff # 24 - Bread Machine Banana Bread

It is time for another edition of Show Your Stuff. I am sharing Bread Machine Banana Bread. So I had these very ripe banana and decided to make banana bread. My son them mentions "Why not make it in the bread machine." So I Google for a recipe and found this recipe here.
Of course what goes better with banana bread than Nutella!
So link up your recipes, photo, DIY, family, crafts, or anything you are proud to show off.

Nutella Rolls

 I made up some Nutella rolls, This turn out really well, it has an intense chocolate flavor. Nutella is not only in the filling, but in the icing also.

So for the roll, this is based on an egg bread recipe from my Better Crocker Cook Book:

About 4 -6 cups of flour
1 package of yeast ( I used 3 t of bread machine yeast because that is all I had)
3 T sugar
3 T butter
1/2 t salt

1 egg (original recipe calls for 2 eggs)

 Heat milk, sugar, butter and salt until it is warm (about 105 - 115 degrees Fahrenheit) stir in the yeast.  Let is sit about 5 minutes until it gets frothy.

Add in 1 cup of flour and the egg. mix until it is well blended. On a well floured surface,  kneed in more flour until until it is a moderately stiff and is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a bowl of about 1 T vegetable oil and ensure the dough is well cover with the oil. let the dough double in size in a warm spot. ( about 1 hour)

To make the filling I used:
1 cups sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup Nutella
1 t vanilla

Thoroughly heat all the ingredients. Let cool slightly.

After the dough has doubled, punch it down.

I rolled the dough to form a rectangle (about 9 x 13), spread your filling on the dough, roll up from the long end and seal the end. Cut about 1 inch rolls and place in greased 9x13 backing pan. Let the rolls double in size before baking ( about 30 minutes). Bake in 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

To make Nutella frosting:

1T Nutella
1/4 t vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar.

Combine first 3 ingredients, with a mixer, blend in enough milk to make the frosting the consistency you want.  (usually not a lot, only a few tablespoons) Spread frosting on finished rolls while still warm.

Show Your Stuff #22

It is time for another edition of Show Your Stuff. I am showing off bologna and cheese wrapped in a biscuit. My husband made these. Using canned biscuits, he rolled it out, rolled in cheese and bologna (he used ham in some of them), topped it off with some Parmesan cheese, and baked according to package directions. Of course you can stuff with any kind of cheese or cold cuts of your choice.
So share your recipe, DIY, craft projects, photos, family related stories, or anything you are proud to show off. Please visit other participates, there is a lot of great stuff out there.
