Longaberger Dessert Bowls … a “bowl” lot of uses!

(c) 2015 The Longaberger Company
Well, today is the first day of October, and it is time to start thinking about the holidays.  Starting today, I am going to highlight different products to help you during the holidays (NewHallowthankmas-there are many names of this hybrid of holidays).
Today’s product is not a new product, but a returning product.   It is part of the product line, and I love using this product because it is so versatile for everything.  They are called Little Dessert Bowls.  When Longaberger first came out with these little bowls, I immediately fell madly in love with them.  You will see in a moment why.
What I personally use them for?
First of all, I have been quite a connoisseur of all things sushi…well almost, but when I sushi at home, the soy sauce goes right the bowls.  They are deep enough to dip the sushi roll right in, without overflowing the bowl.  Next, I am also a crafter, who often craft with small items, like beads, pins, and small pieces of paper. I have seen them also used in workshops, nurseries, and bathrooms.  The list goes on...

-Great for controlled portions when dieting.
-A small amount of leftovers always tastes better if stored and served in a Longaberger Dessert Bowl!
-A prettier way to serve pats of butter and jam with your morning toast or muffin.
-Great for baby food.
-Fill with sprinkles and colored sugars and decorate your cookies in style.
-Perfect for dips and salsa.
-A great way to serve ice cream toppings in a dessert buffet.
-Bake brownies or chocolate chip cookie dough in your Dessert Bowl. Top with a scoop of ice cream and hot fudge … the perfect sundae.
-Put your Dessert Bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes before scooping ice cream. A great way to prevent “ice cream soup,” especially on hot summer days.
-Serve condiments at a BBQ
These versatile bowls are not just for food:
-Perfect for coloring Easter eggs.
-Place one by the kitchen sink and safely store your rings and watch while doing the dishes.
-Scatter several around the dinner table, fill with a little water, trim the stem off of a flower and “float” it in the dessert bowl. Imagine a white gardenia in a Paprika red bowl, a bright red gerbera daisy in a butternut Pewter bowl or Daisies in sage green bowls! So pretty!!!
-Looks fabulous with a votive candle as well!

Recipe

Pineapple Upside Down Cake in the Dessert Bowls
1 box of yellow or pineapple cake mix
2 cans of pineapple ring slices (drain, saving juice as your water)
Maraschino Cherries drained
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-Spray dessert bowls with nonstick cooking spray and place on baking sheet. (Recipe makes 12 dessert bowl servings)
-Mix boxed yellow or pineapple cake mix according to direction except substitute the water with pineapple juice.
-Melt butter over heat in sauce pan & add brown sugar. Cook until well blended-- about 2 minutes
-Place 1 heaping Tbsp of butter mixture in the bottom of each dessert bowls. Any remaining brown sugar mix can be divided amongst the dessert bowls.
-Place one pineapple ring in each Longaberger Dessert Bowl and press down lightly, place one maraschino cherry in the center of each pineapple ring pressing down into the brown sugar mixture!
-Place a heaping 1/4 cup of the cake batter on top of each pineapple ring. Making sure the Pineapple ring is completely covered. Place any extra mix evenly amongst all the Dessert bowls, Bowls should be about 1/2 inch from the top rim.
-Place the Longaberger Dessert Bowls on a baking sheet in the oven and bake at 350 for about 30 - 35 minutes.
-Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes then with a oven mitt or wash rag folded carefully turn over all the dessert bowls onto a Longaberger Cake Plate or each cake onto a Longaberger Bread Plate. If you turn over all the dishes allowing each one to set about a minute the mini cakes will come out easily.

Remember:

October through December only! Set of 2 Small Dessert Bowls--only $20
Each dessert bowl has a capacity of 8 ounces. Sets are available in Paprika (red), Sage (green), Ivory, Eggplant (purple), Ebony (black) or NEW!  Pewter (gray)

Longaberger Pottery is vitrified … fired hot enough and long enough so that parts of the clay compound melt into glass, binding the entire piece together. Safe for use in the over, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. Food stays hotter longer when it is baked and served in   Longaberger pottery.

They are almost too pretty to eat! Serve Warm or Cold! Enjoy!
