*Sweet Rolls-O-Rama* - May Linky Party & Philly Friendship Braided Bread

Let's review April's link ups - what a great turn out - we've almost doubled the link ups - we had 9 in March and 16 in April. Thanks to everyone that joined. They all look fabulous.


Every month, I'm going to try one linked up recipe... from March, I tried the Philly Friendship Braided Bread... yum yum... what a perfect Easter-morning breakfast treat :)

I gotta tell ya, they tasted like Toaster Strudels - but like better! Here are mine... and I had some leftover dough from another project - we made two kinds of rolls Easter weekend - and so I did the braided bun thing together with my daughter to make sort of like an Amish girl - check it out:

Before baking, see the difference in the doughs - the Philly Friendship Braided Bread is some of the "wettest" dough I've every worked with - it was different but the taste is sensational!

I filled them with Bonne cream cheese and raspberry jam - and I brushed them with a simple glaze from the Bunny Buns - so yummy together - they probably don't need that but I just happen to have some leftover and a little extra sugar never hurt anyone (I hope not).

So, it's kind of like a little Amish girl from the backside, I love the braid - and it just shows that you can do just about anything with dough - mostly I roll everything up very traditionally, it was fun to break out of the box and just make something totally different.

This month... May, I will be on vacation in America - yippee!
I'm so happy :)

I will leave the linkytool up for anyone to join but I won't personally invite anyone until I return from vacation.
