Who says cinnamon rolls have to take all day to make?  You will be in and out of the kitchen in about 30 minutes with my Itty Bitty Bites.  I’ve used Pillsbury’s “Simply” biscuits to create these adorable bite size cinnamon rolls.

No kidding, I made these for an afternoon snack for the kids and their friends last week and by the end of the night all 60 bites were gone.  They are a fun snack and sweet dessert for any party.

Treat yourself to my Springtime White Chocolate Lemon Pudding Cookies! You’ll be glad you did 🙂

My oldest son is a lemon dessert kind of boy.  We were in the mood to make cookies a few nights ago and he said, “Mom, let’s make some lemon cookies!”  He didn’t have to twist my arm 🙂  We created these perfectly delicious lemon chip cookies with lemon curd as the secret ingredient.  Just enough tart and just enough sweet with the white chocolate chips.
The pudding adds such a great texture.  Give these babies a try, you won’t be disappointed!
