The cookbook is Gooseberry Patch Quick & Easy Christmas. So, we're having some Christmas in May! I find that it is very hard to choose just 2 or 3 recipes. They all sound good! And easy!
My first recipe I decide was Cinnamon Biscuits. They are so easy to put together and make a wonderful treat!
2 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. cinnamon
2 C. sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 (8oz. ea.) tubes refrigerated biscuits
Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a medium bowl. Place melted butter in a seperate bowl. Seperate biscuits. Dip biscuits into butter, then into cinnamon mixture. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes, until golden. Makes 20.
I'm always a fan of soup. I like how easy soup is to put together, and it is filling. This soup is so creamy and is wonderful on a cool rainy day, which is the weather we've been dealing with here in Ohio!
Easy Cheesy Chicken & Dumpling Soup
4 (10-3/4 oz.) cans cream of chicken soup
4 (14-1/2 oz.) cans chicken broth
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
4 cups chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 (14-1/2 oz.) cans sliced carrots, drained
10-oz. tube refrigerated biscuits, quartered
In a large stockpot, over med.-low heat, combine soup, broth and milk; mix well. Add seasonings, chicken and cheese; stir until cheese melts, about 10 minutes. Mix in carrots; top with biscuit pieces. Cover and simmer on low until biscuits are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Serves 8.
The last recipe that I picked sounded wonderful, but I didn't realize how wonderful it would be until I took my first bite. This pizza is addicting!! I actually crave this pizza, and may have to make it again this weekend! It's easy to put together, and is perfect for company. That is, if you really feel you must share...personally, I could eat the entire pizza!
Chicken & Rosemary Pizza
2 cups shredded mozzerella cheese, divided
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
1 red onion, sliced
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
13.8 oz. tube refrigerated pizza dough
In a bowl, toss together 1-1/2 cups cheese and remaining ingredients, except pizza dough. Roll out dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Spread cheese mixture onto dough to within 1/2 inch of edge. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 18-22 minutes, until golden. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serves 4-6.
