The other day, I was sitting behind my desk when one of my seventh-grade boys walked in. With a very concerned look on his face, he says to me, “Mrs. Frey, I think you should know there’s a rumor going around that you’re pregnant.” I couldn’t do anything but just stare at him. I saw this kid last week?! Was he serious? I looked at my other student in the group sitting at his desk and he just rolled his eyes and said, “Yeah, I’m pretty sure she told us that a while ago.” Ha!! We’ll just say this particular student is in his own world sometimes. When I stood up and showed him my belly he yelled, “What?! When the heck did that happen?!” Oy. At least the gossip about me going around is actually true. And at least my students care enough to talk about me. ;)

Cookie Butter Rolls

Posted on

What is it about stress and eating crappy?! Why do they go hand in hand so darn well?

The other week we were going to a party where there would be food, but it was late enough that I needed to eat a snack. So, instead of going for a banana, yogurt or some other healthy choice, I decided to make these delicious goodies. Because sometimes…okay, every time you’re having a bad day, eating some buttery bready creation warm out of the oven always makes it better. ALWAYS.

(Recipe adapted from this recipe.)

INGREDIENTS

-1/2 cup white sugar

-1 teaspoon cinnamon

-1 can Pillsbury Grands Jr. Buttermilk Biscuits (10 biscuits)

-approximately 1 cup Cookie Butter (from Trader Joe’s) *could use cream cheese, peanut butter or any type of jam/jelly as an alternative

-1/4 cup of butter

DIRECTIONS

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a round 8-inch cake pan.

2. Stir the cinnamon and sugar together in a separate bowl. Melt the butter in another bowl.

3. Flatten and roll each biscuit into a 3-inch round. Put about a tablespoon full of cookie butter into the middle and fold each side up and pinch the edges to seal.

4. Dip each biscuit “ball” into the butter, then roll in the cinnamon and sugar. Place into the cake pan.

5. Pour any extra cinnamon sugar mixture over the uncooked biscuits. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

6. Take out of oven and let cool a little before you consume one or five. (I won’t judge you.) ;)

ENJOY!!!!
