Dinner and a Movie Friday

He is just not that into you

A few years ago when I was single I read the book and had a light bulb moment. Wasted time and energy. I believe allot of single women fall into this situation. The movie makes women look like they are stupid when it comes to dating most are, me included. A few big stars Jennifer Aniston, Ben Afflec, and Drew Barrymore. Some what entertaining and true about the dating life. All single women should see this movie and take it to heart.
My mom always makes this pull apart on Christmas morning I missed Christmas this year and the craving was building. The cream cheese mixture add tons of flavor.

Cranberry Cream Cheese Pull Aparts

24 frozen bread rolls, thawed but cold ( Rhodes brand recommended)
1 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup butter melted
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon each, grated orange rind and lemon rind
1 cup powdered sugar
5 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Press about 1 teaspoon cranberries into each thawed roll. Place the rolls in a 9 by 13 inch pan coated with non- stick cooking spray. Combine the butter, 1/2 cup sugar, cream cheese and orange juice. Blend well and pour over rolls. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in size.

Heat oven to 350. Combine the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, the rind and any remaining cranberries. Sprinkle this
mixture over the risen rolls. Bake immediately for 25 minutes or until rolls in the center are cooked through. Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice. Drizzle over rolls. I believe this recipe came from Rhodes Bake-N-Serv but I am not sure.

It's very similar to a recipe from Cooking Light that my family loves. The citrus flavored sugar adds so much flavor! I always have my husband make these for me for my birthday breakfast.
