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.

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

Directions:

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.
