Cut up the pepperoni and cheese. Spoon a spoonful of pizza sauce on one crescent roll. Put some pepperoni and cheese in the center and fold over and smash edges together with a fork. Cook 375 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes You can also use the 'same idea for peanut butter and jelly, pie filling etc.

Put sandwiches in rectangular pan and freeze uncovered about 1 hour or until firm. If you would like roll the edges of the sandwiches in candies or chopped dry roasted peanuts. Wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap. Store sandwiches in freezer in plastic freezer bag.


Saw this on TV. Most everyone likes pie. Here's a super easy pie that is not to sweet, and if you know how to stir you can make it. I really like this easy to do pie, since our Cubs typically are new to the kitchen, and this is a very easy pie which in my mind will boost confidence in a new area to them. If you think eating yogurt will *gross-out* your Cubs, make it for them first without telling them what is in it. Or just tell them some of the ingredients, whip cream, some fruit, and a cookie crust.

Ingredients: 1 container strawberry yogurt (the fruit on the bottom kind
1 container mixed berries yogurt (the fruit on the bottom kind
One-half of 8 oz. Container cool whip
ready made graham cracker crust (we used a chocolate cookie crumb pie crust)

Stir together well first three ingredients and pour into crust. Pop it into the freezer for approx. 3 hours.
