When I was in middle school, I took skating lessons with my best friend and her brother. They were legit good skaters, whereas I was just happy to learn the basics, but I loved being at the rink with other skaters, trying out new skills and feeling a little magical as I swished over the ice.
So of course I’m super psyched to share the relaunched cover of Any Way You Slice It by Kristine Carlson Asselin, which not only features life at the rink, but also family struggles, a new crush, and yep, pizza. Plus the book has a gorgeous new cover, which I get to share with you:
If you live in the MA area, you can help celebrate the relaunch of Any Way You Slice It on Saturday, November 18. In the meantime, you should pretend you work with Penelope at Slice Pizza and make her dessert pizza:
ANY WAY YOU SLICE IT – Penelope’s Dessert Pizza
*1 can(s) crescent rolls
1/4 c butter, cold
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c flour
pinch of salt
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 Tbsp butter, soft
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
1-1 1/2 Tbsp milk
1. Preheat oven to 400.2. First things first, roll out the crescent rolls into 8 triangles—be sure to use an ungreased cookie sheet. These babies are pre-greased so you don’t need anything else.
3. Cut in the butter to the mixture of sugar, cinnamon, salt and flour to form crumbles. Use a fork or a pastry blender or your fingers! Be sure the butter is COLD for best results. Try not to eat too much of the crumble, but it will be tempting. (Licking fingers is excusable.)
4. Sprinkle the dough with crumbs and throw those bad boys into the oven for 8 to 12 minutes.
5. After it all cools, cut into smaller triangles and drizzle with glaze.
6. And now the fun part: EAT and Enjoy!
If you make these, take a picture and post with #AnyWayYouSliceIt and don’t forget to tag
@KristineAsselin w/ all your pizza photos.
Thanks to Kris for letting me share the Any Way You Slice It goodness. Can’t wait to snag a copy of my own!
*Penelope would have you know that using a pre-made dough is cheating; I am super with you, Penelope. But whatever way gets you pizza is a win in my book.
