Bread bowl

This isn't really a recipe, per se, but a method I love and use every Easter for our rolls.

I made our favorite potato rolls to put inside, and while you can definitely use your roll dough for the bread bowl, I knew we wouldn't eat that part and decided to keep all the yummy rolls for us to eat, and make the bread bowl out of a quick pizza crust recipe. I used my friens Mindy's, which can be found here. (I halved this recipe because I knew I didn't need bigger than that for my size of bowl)

Take a smaller glass bowl (Pyrex or another oven safe bowl) and place upside down on a cookie sheet. Spray bowl with non-stick spray, and then press your dough around the bowl, making sure it's pressed evenly around.

Bake according to recipe--(mine I baked for about 13 minutes at 450) Remove from oven and let cool. (while cooling, I suggest rubbing butter out the dough, because it will give it a nice golden tone)

Flip bowl back the right way, and use a knife to gently loosen the bread from the glass bowl. Slowly take the glass bowl out, and voila! You have yourself a bread bowl!

I love the look of green rim, because it looks springy! To achieve this, I dabbed corn syrup along the entire rim, and then sprinkled it with parsley.

Such a fun centerpiece!!
