Slow Cooker Rolls

It was a little doughy in the middle and some were too done on the sides. Good flavor. I think next time I will make a well in the center and have the rolls be on the sides as much as possible. Then they might cook more evenly.

Slow Cooker Italian Dinner Rolls
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 can (11 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crusty French loaf
1 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon Italian herb blend

Sprinkle cornmeal in 2 quart slow cooker. Cut loaf of dough crosswise into 10 pieces to make rolls.
Arrange rolls in slow cooker. In small bowl, mix melted butter and herb blend. Brush over rolls.
Cover; cook on High heat setting 1 hour 40 minutes to 1 hour 50 minutes or until rolls are golden brown around edges and cooked through in center.

Eggnog Pound Cake

This was good, but a little dry. I think it could use 1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce. And more rum extract and nutmeg. The eggnog flavor wasn’t as strong as I would have liked.

Eggnog Pound Cake
1 16 ounce package pound cake mix
1 c. water
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp rum extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat all ingredients together at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Increase speed to medium and beat 2 minutes. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan to wire rack and cook completely (about 1 hour).
