Texas Bound

Had to post one last recipe before leaving for Texas where I will be celebrating my mom’s 90th birthday, in Corpus Christi, before going on to Dallas to get my fill of Tex-Mex, Pappadeux, Luby’s and Whataburger, oops, I mean get my fill of more grandkids, which are there…..Can you tell I am always thinking about food? I do love my grandchildren, but don’t make me choose between Whataburger and kids. Seriously, I am excited that I get to trick or treat with Sevy this year. Since he is like his dad, I will probably be the only one in costume. He will most likely wear a sport coat and tie. He is 8….guess he has grown up more than his grandmother!

The cookbook I am taking several recipes from is one that I have learned to leaf through and seem to always find something that I have never seen before. This one caught my eye and I will be making it during Thanksgiving when our house will come alive with family. It is easy and loving the flavor or oranges, this will be a winner.

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tables butter

1 table grated orange peel

3 tables orange juice

2 cans crescent rolls (see I told you this would be easy)

Spray a 12″ pizza pan with Pam. In small saucepan, combine brown sugar, butter, orange peel and juice. Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly and set aside.

Remove dough from each can; DO NOT unroll dough. cut each roll into 12 slices.

Arrange 24 slices evenly on prepared pizza pan. Spoon brown sugar mixture evenly over slices. Bake at 375 for 13-15 min or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Doesn’t this just make you want to get up right now and go make these? I can’t wait to get home to make these delicious little gems….will be back home Nov 1st…until then, enjoy the wonderful gift of Fall…Blessings, tkbakesalot
