There’s a little something for everyone (including fruits & veggies), and you could definitely keep these recipes around all spring long for tea parties, brunch with friends and even Mother’s Day!

Easter Treats & Sweets

Cabbage Leaf MatVeggie Garden: The vegetable tray gets a makeover with this idea from Glitter and Goulash. You can even use our Cabbage Leaf Mats to line the basket for decorative appeal that won’t wilt like real cabbage or lettuce leaves.

Fruit Kabobs: Easter cookie cutters are needed for this yummy project, and the skewers are certainly optional. Cut up all of your melons, apples and other fruit selections in bunny or egg shapes, or just pick a couple to complement grapes, bananas and strawberries on your Easter table.

Italian Easter Bread: Just one look at this creation by Bake with Christina will have you adding it to your recipe book to make year after year. Don’t forget the Easter egg!

Easter Popcorn: Chocolate, popcorn and plenty of bright colors make this a festive and cheerful addition to your Easter and spring table.

These Carrot Cake Truffles from Inspired By Charm are almost too charming to eat; Easter Blossom Sugar Cookies put a colorful twist on an old favorite Blossom Cookie recipe; Mini Lemon Tarts in a decorative flower shape are perfect for showing off spring spirit and your baking talents; and these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Eggs put a fun twist on those irresistible peanut butter cup eggs found in the candy aisle.

Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread Recipe

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Pull-Apart Bread (before the cinnamon drizzle)

This Pull-Apart Bread is perfect for brunch, breakfast or even dessert. Pouring the cinnamon drizzle over the bread dough before placing into the oven will add more cinnamon flavor, but you can omit it if you want a muted sweetness. Enjoy!

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 (16 ounce) packages of refrigerated biscuit dough
    (we recommend using a buttermilk variation)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar, separated
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a Bundt pan.
  2. Mix together 3/4 cup of sugar and the cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Quarter each biscuit, dip into the cinnamon-sugar mixture (rolling into a ball if preferred) and place in the Bundt pan. Continue until the dough is used up.
  3. Add remaining sugar to unused cinnamon-sugar mixture if desired, and add butter; combine well. Drizzle over the top of the dough and put the pan into the oven.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes and serve hot.
