4th of July Bread
Did you see me post a teaser about this on Instagram? Our 4th of July Bread is incredibly sweet and ridiculously easy to make. Yet, it is so festive and patriotic looking. Don’t you just LOVE that? As you may or may not know, if I’m going to cook- it’s going to be an easy recipe. So, have no fear, this 4th of July Bread will take you 10 minutes to make and only requires 2 ingredients (true story!).
Are you ready to learn how to make the world’s easiest 4th of July Bread? It’s actually made from Crescent dough and covered in red and blue sugar. The result is ultimately fluffy, buttery, and sweet! This is the perfect creation for your patriotic party!
You will need:
- 2 Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheets (found by their crescent rolls)
- Wilton’s red and blue sugar sprinkles (found in the baking isle)
- Pizza cutter
- Wax paper
- 2 plates
- Baking Dish
- Non-stick spray
- Start by removing the dough sheet onto wax paper.
- Cut the dough into strips. Roll the strips to the length of your baking dish.
- Cover the rolled dough pieces in sugar.
- Gently place the rolled and sugared dough strips in a red and blue alternating pattern into your baking dish (spray with non-cook spray first!).
- Use the pizza cutter again and make the pieces the same length in your baking dish.
- Bake at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes or until the bread is cooked through. This all depends on the size and type of baking dish you use, so just keep an eye on it! Crescent rolls are extremely easy to cook:) When you see them turn slightly golden on top, they are done!
If you have toddlers or preschoolers, have them tell you the red and blue order as you are making the 4th of July Bread. Say to them, “Which color comes next?” Let them do some problem solving. You can even let them help with putting the sugar on– kids love activities like that! We had leftover dough, so I let the kids develop their own creations. I gave them some extra sprinkles and they got to work while our red and blue bred was cooking.
The cooked bread is unbelievably addicting!! Everybody knows that crescent rolls are mouth wateringly tasty, but trust me, when you add a little sugar to the buttery fabulousness- you’ll be in bread heaven! We love to eat it warm and right out of the oven. I personally use my pizza cutter to separate the 4th of July Bread in long sticks, but you can be as creative as you want about that part! Cut them into smaller pieces if you’re serving several people (the cute options are endless!). Just be aware that they won’t last long. Your friends and family will gobble them up in the blink of an eye…
