A pepperminty treat, just in time for the holidays.
Preheat oven to 325F.
Spray two jelly roll pans with baking spray, and line pan with parchment. Spray again and sprinkle on some flour, tapping off excess.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, prepare boxed mix according to directions (using the amounts of water, eggs and oil specified by your package instructions – the above amounts were what my mix called for), beating an extra two minutes at high speed to incorporate as much air as possible. Split batter between the two lined and floured pans. Spread batter thinly and evenly in the pans.
Place both pans into heated oven for 7 1/2 minutes, then rotate pans so the side previously in the back of the oven is now in the front. This will ensure even baking. Bake for another 7 1/2 minutes.
Pull out two lint free towels (or pillow cases work well) and lay them out on a large flat surface. Dust the towels with powdered sugar. Once cake is done, turn out cake – one onto each towel or pillow case. Remove parchment from back of cakes. Promptly roll up the cakes in a cylindrical fashion (roll it towel and all) and allow rolls to cool (keep them rolled up while cooling).
Beat together the cream cheese, butter, sugar, vanilla and peppermint in the bowl of a stand mixer. Unroll cake, spread cream cheese mixture evenly over cake and re-roll the cake (without the towel this time). Chill the roll for 1 hour, slice and serve.
Epiphany is celebrated on January 6, and commemorates the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child. Growing up, our church would celebrate with Epiphany Cakes, which were filled with trinkets signifying different things. A fun way to celebrate the twelve day of Christmas with your kids! (Note: Be careful with small objects; make sure kids know they’re in the cake.)
These would be the perfect cookies to make with kids on Christmas eve to set out for Santa! Not only are they cute and fun, but they’re absolutely delicious. A soft and chewy sugar cookie base with cream cheese frosting, white chocolate, chocolate chips, marshmallows and sprinkles!
The main thing to remember about peppernuts is that they are tiny, about a third to a half inch, no larger. Peppernuts are a tradition in many German families. They came to our area with the Mennonite immigration in the 1870′s. Imagine generations of people grabbing a handful or two of peppernuts and munching away and you have a tradition worth continuing.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
