Easy Homemade Biscuits

image

These biscuits were so easy and these are actually the first I have made from scratch! This recipe is good for freezing. They are vegan as well.

Homemade Biscuits

2 cups self rising flour
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup of milk

Preheat 375°. Mix all dry ingredients. Slowly pour in melted butter and milk while stirring. When a dough ball forms, put on a floured surface and roll it out with a rolling pin. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter or knife. Bake for 15-18 minutes.

If you are freezing them, stack them on top of eachother separating with wax paper. Then, roll them up in cling wrap and put in a freezer bag. When you are ready cook them, 450° for ten minutes.

Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

image

I made these this morning for breakfast and they were sooooo good! I like anything with cream cheese though. These were also inexpensive and easy (my fav). The kids have already asked me to make them again! At first I didn’t think it was going to be enough for all of us, but it was plenty. I even had 3 leftover.

Cream Cheese Crescent Rolls

2 cans of crescent rolls
16 oz cream cheese
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of butter (melted)
1 tbsp of vanilla
Cinnamon and sugar

Preheat oven for 350°. Mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spray baking sheet and unroll 1 can of crescents. Spread on cream cheese mixture. Top with the other can of crescents. Pinch the outer edges closed as best you can. Put the melted butter all over the top and sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

You could probably serve it as a dessert too. Yummy!  😛

Crock Pot Apple Crisp

image

I am not sure why they call this a crisp, it’s not crispy. It is delicious, and it smells so good cooking. This can be served as a breakfast, or as a dessert with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. I have done both.  😛

Crock Pot Apple Crisp

5 apples cored, peeled and cut up (any kind whatever you prefer)
1 cup rolled oats/old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon of salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup of flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of butter

Melt butter. Mix all ingredients except apples. Spray crock pot. Add layer of apple, then the mixture, repeat. Cook on high 2-3 hours. Stir about halfway through.

It’s very easy to make!

Peanut Butter Breakfast Bar

image

These are very easy to make and very inexpensive. With the recipe below I made 24 bars. The kids grab them for breakfast before school or as a snack. For about $6 I can make 2 batches (with a few ingredients left over).

Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup light corn syrup
6 cups of your choice cereal (I used rice krispies so I didn’t have to crush)
cooking spray

Put sugar, syrup, and peanut butter in saucepan on medium heat stirring frequently. Cereal goes in a separate (big) bowl, and spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. When you notice the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has a shiny look to it, it’s done. Pour mixture over cereal and mix until it’s well coated. While it’s still warm pour onto the cookie sheet and mash it down with wet hands. (it will stick to them if they are dry)
Once it is cool cut up and store in an air tight container at room temperature. They stay good for a couple of weeks.

I have added things like chocolate chips and nuts. I just wait until I pour the mixture onto the cookie sheet and mash them in. The one pictured has chocolate chips.

French Toast Casserole

I like to make this on the weekends sometimes the whole thing is gone everytime! Whenever I have bread that I think is fixing to go bad I throw it in the freezer and save it for this recipe. You can eat it plain, with syrup, or a frosting (which I make with powdered sugar). It is also very cheap to make.

French Toast Casserole

5 eggs
1 1/2 cup of milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup of sugar
bread cut into cubes
butter
cinnamon
cooking spray

Spray 8×8 casserole dish with cooking spray. Fill about 2/3 high bread cubes. Mix eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt in a separate bowl. Then pour mixture over bread cubes, cover, and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning preheat oven at 350°. Dot butter on top just randomly, sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar, and bake for 45-50 minutes. Done!

Frosting

1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
dash of vanilla

Mix altogether until smooth.

This recipe is very easy and it is kind of nice to just get up and throw something in the oven and it’s done.
