Tips on Making This Dessert Even Easier to Prepare
While some people love baking, others like the idea of preparing tasty treats without having to do too much work. I get it! You may not have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. If you are busy and have so much going on, but you still want to make the perfect Halloween treat, I have some great tips to make this dessert so much easier to prepare.
- Instead of preparing your own dough from scratch, you can use crescent dough sheets.
- When you need to cut the sides of the dough sheet, use food scissors.
- The food scissors will cut right through the dough while allowing you to create even pieces that are all the same size.
- It is better to use food scissors than to use your hands or a knife because that would take up more of your time.
- When adding the filling to the center of the Mummy Dessert Calzone, consider using a pre-made option.
You can find cans of pie filling at any local grocery store. Your grocery store might have some great options, including cherry pie filling, apple pie filling, and blueberry pie filling. If you use a pre-made option, all you have to do is lay it down in the dough’s center, wrap the dough pieces on top of it, and pop it in the oven.
