I am so forgetful sometimes … let me tell you what I did this morning. I wash and dry my jeans wrong side out … I heard that it helps with fading. I usually turn them right side out when I put the laundry away … but I didn’t this past time … no big deal … right? This morning when I got dressed, I put my jeans on … two legs in … pulled up … and I tried to button and zip, which didn’t work … then I looked down … I forgot to turn them right side out! I could be loosing it … if I ever had it!
Anyway … the point of my story is … while checking out other blogs this morning … I remembered that I wanted to make these Puff Pastry Rose Pops … I almost forgot! Check out Nifty Thrifty Things … it is because of her that I remembered!
Puff pastry is my friend … a truly wonderful invention … that is so conveniently available in the freezer section at the grocery store! Just let it thaw and use it for making appetizers, main dishes, desserts or … rose pops … just in time for Mother’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day or just to say Thank You.
This is all that you will need … puff pastry, cinnamon, colored sugar, parchment paper and lollipop sticks …
Let a sheet of puff pastry thaw on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, sprinkle with cinnamon and colored sugar …
Roll it up …
Slice into 1-inch pieces …
Insert lollipop sticks and bake …
Make some paper leaves with messages on them and tie them on the sticks …
Easy peasy … now how about making some with different colors of sugar?
