so i think i’ve created a new recipe! …at least as far as i know. with so many talented people out there, and outlets to share those talent,s it’s becoming harder to create something that is truly original. this recipe came about from a mash up of two other recipes i’ve used in the past. the result is a really simple and delicious breakfast pastry, dessert or coffee-sipping-snack. i call them berry danish minis.
aren’t they cute? for what they lack in size they make up for in flavor! do you immediately want to make some of your own? good, let’s get started.
here’s what you’ll need….
1 package pillsbury crescent rolls (or one of those new fancy crescent sheet things)
4 oz softened cream cheese
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tbs sugar
1/2 cup jam OR 1/2 cup fresh berries (mashed and mixed with 1 tbs sugar)
[for this recipe i used 1/4 cup cherry jam and 1/4 cup blueberrie/blackberries. i wanted to try both]
step one: preheat oven to 350. open your crescent rolls and split at the seam into two sections. unroll unto a lightly floured surface.
step two: seal the seams with your fingers. roll out dough until about 1/4 inch thick.
step three: combined softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. spread evenly onto both pieces of dough.
step four: spread jam OR mashed berry/sugar mixture on top of cream cheese.
step five: roll up dough lengthwise.
step six: sliced rolled dough into eight even sections.
step seven: place cut sections into a lightly greased mini muffin tin.
step eight: bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown on top. then, allow to cool in pan for about five minutes.
step nine: remove from pan and lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar.
step ten: devour
talk about yumminess! and super easy, right? told ya!
so what do you think? will you be giving my berry danish minis a try? i sure hope!
