I finished the whoopie pies yesterday.
I found the recipe here. Update: Thanks, Pea, for mentioning the frosting recipe on this page. I did not use that one. I found one that called for 8 oz. cream cheese and 1 7-oz jar of marshmallow creme. I just whipped it until fluffy (albeit very sticky!).
We had our first lightning/ thunderstorm last night. Our power got knocked out for over two hours. How did people ever live without electricity?
I think all that rain got rid of the last piles of snow in my yard. Now if it dries out, I can get to work in the gardens.
For dinner last night, I made these chicken crescent sandwiches:
Pillsbury Chicken Crescent Sandwiches
1package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
1tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
2cups cubed cooked chicken
1tablespoon chopped fresh chives or onion
1tablespoon chopped pimientos, if desired (I left out and put in cooked carrots instead)
1can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls or 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
1tablespoon LAND O LAKES® Butter, melted
3/4cup seasoned croutons, crushed
Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, mix cream cheese and 1 tablespoon softened butter; beat until smooth. Add chicken, chives, salt, pepper, milk and pimientos; mix well.
Separate or cut dough into 4 rectangles. If using crescent dough, firmly press perforations to seal. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture onto center of each rectangle. Pull 4 corners of dough to center of chicken mixture; twist firmly. Pinch edges to seal. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush tops of sandwiches with 1 tablespoon melted butter; sprinkle with crushed croutons.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Just before the power died, I finished this wonky house block.
I only need to make 4 or 5 more house blocks, so it won't take too long.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
