FHE in a jar!


We made these cute jars for our Relief Society Activity in January. All you do is print up the sheets of paper cut them up fold them and place them in a jar and then on the nights you need a quick Family Home Evening all you have to do is pull out a slip, sing the song, read the scripture and discuss the topic that is printed on the paper! USe the links below to make your own!

The original source of FHE in a Jar on JennySmith.net.
I did have my husband do a little work on the document so that it did not use so may sheets of paper and put it in black and white. If you are interested in it just leave me a comment with your email!

I found some cute tags here or you can just click on the link below.

Breakfast Cheese Pie!

This is a Family Tradition in my husband's family. They like to have it for breakfast Christmas morning! And whenever they have the craving for it! After marring into the family I have to admit I did not like it at first, but now I love it! I am hoping my kids will eventually like it too!



8 ounces dinner rolls
1/2 cup sugar
2 egg
1 pound low fat ricotta cheese
2 teaspoons orange peel, grated
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
INGREDIENTS FOR STREUSEL TOPPING
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup butter

Separate rolls into triangles. Place two triangles in a glass pie pan so that their bases meet at the center and their pointed ends drape over opposite edges. Place two more triangles at right angles to the first pieces. Their bases should meet the first pieces at the seam and pointed ends should drape over pan edges. The dough will look like a four-pointed star. Fit remaining triangles of dough along pan sides and bottom, letting pointed tips drape over sides. Press edges together to seal.

(I can't figure out why some of my pictures turned?)

Beat together sugar, and eggs until well blended. Stir in ricotta cheese, orange peel, and vanilla; mix until blended. Pour into dough-lined pan.



STREUSEL TOPPING: With a wooden spoon stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon and butter until blended and coarse crumbs form.

Squeeze premixed streusel topping together with hands to form chunky nuggets; crumble over top of pie filling. Fold pointed tips of dough over filling.




Bake in a 350ยบ oven until filling juggles only slightly in center when gently shaken, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. If made ahead cool thoroughly, cover, and chill. Serve at room temperature. Serves 8.
