Body Part Cupcakes
Now about those varieties I mentioned. One batch had pears, pecans, and chocolate. The second batch had pears, walnuts, almonds, and apple butter. Before I put on the streusel topping I spooned some apple butter and another dollop of batter.
Now go rescue that fruit rotting away in your fruit bowl. This is a great recipe to play with.
After Saturday's UFC night, I had some extra bierock dough left over. Those things have been very popular lately so I have had a lot of scrap dough to play around with.
This time I made pig in the blankets for my son's school lunches. It is pretty straight forward. I rolled out the dough and used a pizza roller to cut out strips about an inch wide.
Since everything is better with cheese, I cut a slit in the dogs and added a few small strips of muenster cheese.
Aren't I creative? I managed to get the strips of dough and dogs in one shot. It was getting late and I was getting tired.
Gently wrap the dough around the dogs. Make sure the dough is wrapped tight but don't force it. Seal the dough by wetting the end of the strip with water and pressing it against the bottom.
Let proof and bake at 375 F for about 15 minutes or until golden.My son came home today and told me that all the kids at his table thought I should sell them to the cafeteria. How funny!
Beat the egg yolks. Add lime juice and condensed milk. Cover and chill until slightly thickened. Mix in whipped cream. I normally make my own but was in a time pinch. So this time I used a carton of extra creamy whipped cream. Put mixture in fridge until you are ready to use.
Cool the baked cupcakes completely.
Prepare them for filling by using a paring knife to cut a cone out of the top. Slice off the majority of the cone, leaving a flat plug.Frost with your favorite icing. I had some left over Bailey's and cream cheese frosting in the freezer. Yes, I keep frosting in the freezer.
