5 Delicious Fat Tuesday Delights
Cue the parades and floats, it’s almost time for New Orleans’ biggest celebration: Mardi Gras! However, you don’t have to live in the Big Easy to celebrate. If you’re throwing or hosting a party, consider making one of these festive dishes.
1. King cake
One of the most iconic dishes served during Mardi Gras is king cake. This recipe comes from Pillsbury and only requires four ingredients.
- 1 can (17.5 ounces) Pillsbury Grands cinnamon rolls with icing
- 2 tablespoons yellow colored sugar
- 2 tablespoons purple colored sugar
- 2 tablespoons green colored sugar
Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly grease the cookie sheet. Separate the dough into five rolls. To make mini king cakes, unroll one roll into a dough rope; fold rope in half lengthwise. Then, twist the dough in a spiral and shape into a circle. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat to use up rolls, placing 2 inches apart.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and decorate by spreading icing on the warm cakes and sprinkling with colored sugars.
