Whats for Dinner: Crescent Pizza Pockets
One of my goals for the year is to involve the kids more when I cook. I have learned that if they help, they know what they are eating and are more likely to try new foods. So as I browsed the net to find something easy fix and something that is kid friendly. I came across a recipie for Cresent Pizza Pockets by Pilsbury. I didn’t follow the recipie exactly, but I stayed pretty close to it. Here is what I used:
1can (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1tbl sp pizza sauce (per pocket)
shredded mozzarella cheese
Shredded sharp chedder cheese
I took the cresent rolls one at a time and rolled them in a ball. I took one ball put a little flower on the counter and my little rolling pin and rolled it in a circle shape.
I placed the ingredients in the middle of the dough. Try to make sure you have enough dough on the edges to piece together.
I gently pulled the dough as I closed up the pocket and pinched it around the ends.
To make it look pretty I took a fork to give the edges the pleated look, and then with the chedder cheese I made the initials of the girls on the pockets they made. I let the pockets cook for 13 minutes (I let the pockets cool for a bit, because my girls are younger and I didn’t want them to burn themselves). Along with the pockets I severed a salad with a side of corn. I have to say that this was an easy meal to make and the girls loved to help out with it. If you have and simple recipies that you would like to share I would love to hear from you! Enjoy!
