Easter Recipes

 Hello lovelies! So Guess what!?! Hubby is staining the floor this weekend (pictures will soon follow) and we are on official spring break this week! Can I get a WOOT WOOT!! I love homeschooling, but this Momma needs a break. I am beyond excited for a little time off. I plan to craft everyday and read a few good books. I have a mental checklist, which Hubby thinks is very dorky. I totally embrace my dorkiness:) Infact I pretty much rock out to it. So while I head off to read Catching Fire (I heart Hunger Games Now), here are two simple Easter recipes to make with your family.

Peanut Butter Crunchies (Nests)
from In Between Laundry

I decided to posts the recipe here, since I changed it just a smidge.

1 c. corn syrup
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. peanut butter
3 cups puffed rice cereal
Peanut M&M's

Bring syrup and sugar to a boil. Stir in peanut butter. Remove from heat. Add cereal. Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Push the candies into the center to create little nests.

My littles loved this. Keagan even said he would love it without the candies.
I think next time we make these I will add raisins or craisins. They were so yummy!

Hot Cross Buns

I got this recipe from HERE.

This recipe is for the bread maker.

Dough
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
4 cups Gold Medal® Better for Bread™ flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons bread machine or quick active dry yeast
1/2  cup dark raisins
Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk or water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla, if desired

Break 2 eggs into 2-cup measuring cup. Add enough water to measure 1 1/3 cups. Measure carefully. Place egg mixture and remaining bun ingredients, except raisins, in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Add raisins at the Raisin/Nut signal or 5 to 10 minutes before last kneading cycle ends.

Select Dough/Manual cycle. Do not use delay cycle. (Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)

Remove dough from pan, using lightly floured hands.

Grease cookie sheet. Divide dough in half. Divide each half into 8 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Snip a cross shape in top of each ball, using scissors. Top with a bad of butter on each roll. Let rise in warm place about 20 minutes. 
 
Heat oven to 375°F. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool slightly.


For Icing 

In medium bowl, mix all icing ingredients until well blended. Stir in additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until smooth and spreadable. Make a cross on top of each bun with icing. I had a little trouble with this, but it absolutely did not affect the taste. They were very yummy! Serve them warm  and Enjoy!
There you have it. Two simple recipes for this lovely holiday fast approaching. So gbet in that kitchen and whip up some yumminess. WE all deserve a break and sugar is a great way to fill that break:)
Have a fabulous day!
