"Butterbraid"

Is a frozen packaged item being sold by my daughter's school. It looks good, but is expensive. It is for a good cause. It is a frozen pasty that you thaw, let rise and then bake. Is it any good? I'll buy one anyway, but should I be getting more?

    I think they're great for occasions such a Thanksgiving when you might have guests/extended family overnight. They're a nice treat in the morning with coffee. All generations of my family seem to enjoy the butter braid. Is it on par with my mother's homemade caramel pecan rolls? No. But at age 77, she deserves a break from pastry making now and again.

    I'd order at least two if I were you.

    Butterbraids are fantastic! They are made near me, but you can only buy them through fundraisers. Years ago they were like $5-6.00, I just ordered one the other day and it was $9.00! But they are worth it as a treat for a holiday breakfast. I like the cream cheese one, but the fruits are good too as toppings. So definitely order a couple, because you will love them!

    Just bought three from a local Church group, 2 cheese and one apple, and never had them before. We made one of the cheese ones yesterday AM and it was fantastic! The pastry was perfect and the cheese filling (cream cheese) was great.

    While frozen they appear to be small but when you let them sit out overnight they rise and get quite large. Agree, great with a hot cup of coffee.

    As someone else said, they are not cheap but remember a good portion goes to whatever charity is selling them so you not only get a great snack but you are helping some people out.

    My promised report................
    So far we have had one of the 2 we bought. It was good but not worth the carbs. My daughter said that the sale went poorly, and that the class is going back to candy bars for fundraising.

    tmiles - "good but not worth the carbs". I'd have to agree. I don't follow a strict low carb diet. But if I’m going to eat something with carbs it’s going to be real cheese cake or a good pizza. I buy them as my employees sell them for their kids and grandkids. I always end up giving the stuff to other people. Boy, I got hit hard this year with kids selling stuff. The employees kids, my three nephews and about 4 neighbor kids. I need to start turning people down.
