We have a lot of fun holiday functions this year and I always need a quick and easy appetizer to take somewhere. This holiday season I’m warming up our oven and our kitchen with Butter Braid. Right from my freezer i have a delicious frozen pastry dough that’s easy to make.

Butter Braid Pastry flavors include:

  • Apple
  • Blueberry Cream Cheese
  • Cherry
  • Cinnamon
  • Cream Cheese
  • Double Chocolate
  • Raspberry
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese
  • 4 Cheese & Herb

With flavors for all tastes its not hard to find something perfect for the whole family. We plan to use one for morning breakfast, let it rise over night and bake it fresh for the family Christmas morning.  Nothing like fresh fluffy pastry, my husband loves his pastries!

I found it incredibly easy to make and after rising they only takes a little time to bake. It comes frozen with everything you need from fruit or falvored filling to the icing to top it off perfectly. Rising times take about 8-12 hours at room temp and around 30 minutes to bake.

After it’s cooked we just allowed it to cool and little and then sliced. Simply cover with plastic wrap then bake when ready. Super easy and fresh.

It’s nice to find something that’s delicious and easy to make. It feels homemade without having to make the dough yourself. My husband and many in my family love fresh baking, so this is great for a big gathering or just at home.

    These breads look so delicious and easy to make for a nice Holiday dessert or any occasion. I would love to try the Raspberry Pastry. Sounds so interesting.

    That bread looks too fancy to eat. It is a shame to cut into something that looks so picture perfect.
