Peanut Butter and Jelly Krispie Treats and more


Peanut Butter and Jelly Krispie Treats

What comes to mind when you think of the two most popular foods for children? For me it’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich and Rice Krispie Treats. So I’ve combined the two and came up with Peanut Butter and Jelly Krispie Treats for you!

Many, many years ago, I began making Rice Krispie Treats with Sugar, Corn Syrup and Peanut Butter. They are soft and taste a whole lot better than the treats made with marshmallows. And they are super easy and go together in about 5 minutes.

Our middle son who is 20, plays college baseball, and during the Summer months, he is on a travel team. So far this Summer, he has played – and we have watched – about 60 games, averaging about 8 per week. On the weekends, they host double header games, having 2 games back-to-back, so the coach began grilling hot dogs for them to eat between games and a couple of the Moms would bring food for the players to go along with the hot dogs. We always took Watermelon and Rice Krispie Treats. The boys loved them, and even though they are older, they all seemed to love the Peanut Butter in them.

Adding the Jelly in the center and making a sandwich with the treats was a no-brainer, because of course, what goes better with Peanut Butter than Jelly.

This time around though, I used the new line of Organic Products at Walmart, Wild Oats. Wild Oats Marketplace has been in the food industry over 25 years, making great food to those that care about what food they eat and where it comes from. Wild Oats recently launched a new line of Organic products at Walmart – and you guessed it, they are affordable. The 16 ounce container of Peanut Butter is priced just under $3, making it comparable to non-organic brands. We recently used the Wild Oats Beans and Pasta in our Healthy Three Bean Pasta Salad and loved it!

I haven’t really used organic products much in the past, because frankly they were expensive. But with this new line of Wild Oats products, they will definitely be on my grocery list now.

Blueberry Pie with Lemon and Thyme

Inspired from a favorite quick bread, this Blueberry Pie is not your normal pie, it has Fresh Thyme, Lemon Zest and Goat Cheese along with Blueberries in a Cornmeal Crust.

I’m super excited to introduce you to Anita from Hungry Couple! She is joining our Hoosier Homemade Team and will be sharing a delicious recipe with you each month! You can find more of her recipes on Hungry Couple and A Cocktail Life, follow her on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and Google+.

Blueberry Pie with Thyme and Lemon | Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com

Let’s talk about pie. Sweet fruit baked into tender, flaky pastry, served warm with maybe a scoop of ice cream on top. It’s been way too long and I needed some pie. The only question was which kind.

All winter I mourn the slim fruit pickings and long for the bounty of summer. Now I couldn’t decide. I mentally ran through the list of fruit options and almost everything appealed to me. But I’m the kind of cook that let’s the market selection dictate my choices so, I took myself shopping at my local farmer’s market. No lack of options there but a basket of beautiful, glistening blueberries called my name.

Back home I decided to borrow some ideas from one of my favorite quick breads and include lemon zest, fresh thyme, cornmeal and goat cheese. I honestly wasn’t completely sure what to expect but my first taste of the pie made me think I’d never want any other kind again. Check out this post from The Kitchn for a great tutorial on making a lattice crust.

I served this with a scoop of my Homemade No Churn Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream. Enjoy!

Blueberry Pie with Lemon and Thyme

Blueberry Pie packed with flavor from Lemons, Thyme and Goat Cheese. Recipe on HoosierHomemade.com from Hungry Couple

Ingredients

    Crust
  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup cornmeal
  • 2 Sticks unsalted butter, well chilled and cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Cup ice water
  • Filling
  • 3 Cups blueberries
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 Cup crumbled goat cheese
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon all purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

    Crust
  1. To make the crust, combine the flour, cornmeal, butter, baking powder, sugar and salt in a food processor with a steel blade and pulse just until it resembles course crumbs. Slowly pour in the ice water and pulse until a dough ball forms. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  2. When ready, cut the dough in half and return one half to the refrigerator. Roll out the other half on a well floured surface until you have about a 10" round. Place the dough round into a 9" pie dish and crimp the edges slightly.
  3. Filling
  4. To make the filling, in a large bowl combine the blueberries, sugar, goat cheese, lemon zest, thyme, flour and salt. Pour into the prepared bottom crust.
  5. Roll out the second half of the dough and cut into strips (I used a pizza cutter). Weave the strips into a lattice top and crimp the edges.
  6. Bake the pie in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 30 - 40 minutes or until the crust is a light golden brown.

The Macaroni and Cheese Bar does require some supervision, depending on the age of your child, but what kid doesn’t love Kraft Macaroni and Cheese? Kids also love having choices, so why not add some steamed broccoli or bacon bits for them to add in if they want. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is available at Walmart in a 5 count package.

Kids love popsicles and these fun Peel-A-Pops from Nestle Wonka are sure to be a hit. The dessert pops look and peel them just like a banana, but the peels are edible. They come in two flavors – Vanilla Banana or Vanilla Grape. We have had these in a our freezer for several days, and every day our youngest, who is 17, has asked if I was done taking pictures of them. He was so excited to try them, and he was not disappointed, he loved them.
