| December 1, 2016 | 3 Comments

Whether made for the holidays, a special occasion or to brighten a loved one’s day, Canadians love baking fun and creative treats! We like to take chances and think outside of the box when coming up with fabulous ideas for baked dishes to put smiles on the faces of our loved ones. Pillsbury™ and Betty Crocker™ have teamed up to showcase how savvy Canadians can be in the kitchen by launching the first-ever Bake It Possible contest! They want to inspire Canadians to show off their baking best by sharing their new creations made with Pillsbury™ and Betty Crocker™ products. What’s in it for you? Does a chance at winning $10 000 (and gaining 15 minutes of fame) sound good to you? It is pretty amazing to me!

In the spirit of the Bake It Possible contest, I created a recipe using Pillsbury™ Original Crescent Dinner Rolls to help get your creative juices flowing! Since my family loves entertaining, I like to have fun and easy snackity snacks on hand to serve our guests. I have always wanted to experiment with making appetizer cups, and the Pillsbury Crescent Rolls dough gave me the opportunity to try it out!

Pillsbury Crescent Rolls would really come to rescue if there is little time to prepare for our loved ones’ arrival.  They would considerably cut down on my prep time in the kitchen because I would not have to put a pie crust together and are easy to use.

    That sounds like something I’d enjoy eating but I’d have to substitute something for the spinach, broccoli perhaps, but I’m not good at creating from scratch so I’ll just wish you luck 🙂
