You got this, be creative in your baking. This is your time to shine with half the dishes and mess.

Pizza dough becomes garlic or cinnamon knots, roll out the proofed cinnamon rolls to become crispy elephant ears, cut up the brownies for easy fudgy mini cupcakes!

There are so many things you can do with our take and bake items, although they are pretty darn good just the way we suggest.

CINNAMON ROLLS

Remove from package and place in a greased pan and cover with plastic wrap. Keep frosting refrigerated. Let rise at room temperature 8 to 12 hours. They should be twice the original size. In the morning… Remove plastic wrap, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake cinnamon rolls 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown. After baking, don’t forget the frosting!

MINI CROISSANTS

Remove from package and place on a sheet pan and cover with lightly greased plastic wrap. Let rise at room temperature 8 to 12 hours. They should be twice the original size. When ready… Remove plastic wrap, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake croissants 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown. These are great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Proof them overnight for breakfast or during the day for dinner!

PIE DOUGH, Shape and bake

Cut dough in to equal parts and roll to desired thickness. Shape into pie tin and bake as recipe directs. This dough can make 2-9″ pie shells. Because there is no sugar in this dough it pairs great with sweet and savory fillings…pot pie anyone???

PIZZA DOUGH BALLS

Our pizza dough is versatile and can be made into a deep dish pan pizza or a thin crust hearth baked pizza. It’s up to you and what equipment you have at home. For best results, make sure the dough is fully thawed and THEN let it rise at room temperature for at least two hours and no more than six hours. Shape as desired, top, then let rise again before baking at 475 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. 

PAR BAKED PIZZA DOUGH

Remove from package and let thaw. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add whatever toppings. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until cheese is bubbling and heated thru.

TAKE AND BAKE COOKIES

Cut into desired thickness. This makes 12- 1.3 ounce cookies, baking instructions are based on this amount and size for a chewy, gooey cookie. Bake at 300 degrees 12 to 15 minutes. Adjust baking temperature and time for different sizes or a crunchy cookie. 

TAKE AND BAKE BROWNIES

Remove lid before baking. Bake at 300 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. For fudgy brownies your batter tester should have a little crumb when ready. Unbaked brownie can be frozen up to three months and baked from frozen. 

SOME GENERAL TAKE & BAKE INFORMATION

With hundreds of models of home ovens in various states of repair, it’s hard to give exact times and temperatures. We encourage you to try slight variations on the guidelines above to find what works best for your home! This is part of the fun of baking; even when the first twenty steps are the same, you can achieve very different results with the last few steps.

In general, a higher baking temperature will give more rise and produce a darker but thinner crust. Higher baking temperatures are well suited for low sugar products (such as our croissants and biscuits).

In general a lower baking temperature will give less rise and produce a thicker but lighter crust. Lower baking temperatures allow more time for the heat to reach the center of the product, and so prevent the “too dark but still raw” syndrome; if you are experiencing this it is a sure sign to try a lower baking temperature.
