Sugar Crumb Crispies

This is the recipe for the new, delicious breakfast item we had on Saturday morning. Of course we found this on Pinterest, but credit goes to:


Thanks to her we have an awesome new goody on our menu :)

Sugar Crumb Crispies

1/4 cup butter *make sure butter is cold*

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

dash of salt

1/2 cup flour

1 can Pillsbury Cresent Rolls

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Cut in butter to sugars, cinnamon, and salt and flour to form crumbs.

On an ungreased cookie sheet, separate crescent roll dough into 8 triangles. Sprinkle crumbs on top.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 8-12 minutes.

After they were cooked and cooled I cut them into smaller triangles but you can leave them big too!


1/2 cup powdered sugar *I like my glaze thicker, so if the glaze is too runny, just add more powdered sugar to get yours to the desired consistency.*

1 Tbsp. softened butter

1-1/4 tsp. vanilla

1 to 1-1/2 Tbsp. milk

Blend together and drizzle over Sugar Crumb Crispies



Another Successful Retreat :)

Sorry it's been so long between posts!!! We still need to recap ScrapPINK 2011!!! We had another successful retreat this weekend :) Thanks so much to all of you who have supported us over the years. If if wasn't for sweet ladies like you who attend our retreats, we would have give this up long ago. We've had some new recipes that we've tried at the last few retreats and we'll post those soon.


Corn Dip

Well it seems that my friend & coworker's Corn Dip has become an SSR staple. Several of you have asked for the recipe, so here it is.

2 cans shoe peg corn
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 sm can chopped green chiles

Drain all of these ingredients really well. Mix with 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream & 1/2 cup mayonnaise. Refrigerate until serving. Serve with fritos or tortilla chips. Tastes good for several days.
