I thought if I entitled this post, "Thoughts Today."
It might help me have some thoughts. I wonder where
your brain goes when it refuses to think? Mine is rebelling
right now and refusing to pay attention to my fingers. The cursor
is blinking off and on waiting for some kind of thought to appear
on the horizon. Wow, nothing happening, I do have a recipe with a
picture but the picture isn't the greatest. I am not very good
at taking pictures of food.
I like to cook, kinda like to eat, but when it come to food and me
I am not a gourmet eater. I like easy food. Just like my cookies
I like cheap cookies. I like to cook great food, just eating well,
it is just necessary. I think I could eat pizza, three meals a day.
I could eat hamburgers and french fries three meals a day. Lets
see what else, I think someday I would like to sit down with a fork
and eat a whole red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.
Can you tell I have been on Weight Watchers now for one solid week.
I lost three pounds. I am keeping a list of foods I think I would like to eat
in three months. Panda Express in on that list. With the above list as well.
Oh my recipe well here it is:
Cherry Danish Dessert
Prep 15 minutes
Bake 25 minutes
2 cans crescent dinner rolls divided
2 pkg (8 ounces each) Cream Cheese softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar divided
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla
1 can cherry pie filling
3 Tablespoons milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, use one can of dough for bottom layer*( See note at bottom.)
sealing perforations. Place in a 13x9 pan sprayed with not stick spray.
2. Beat cream cheese 3/4 cup of powdered sugar egg white and vanilla, until smooth, pour over crust. pour pie filling over this part and then press the other can of dough into a rectangle and put it over crust.
Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown.
3. Cool a little, mix the rest of the powdered sugar with milk. Stir until smooth and drizzle over dessert.
I don't use crescent rolls but make my own bread. I just use the same recipe I use to make
my cinnamon rolls. I don't use pie filling because I don't like pie filling unless it is homemade. Then if I was making home made pie filling I would just be making a pie and not danish. I also only use one 8 ounce package of cream cheese because I thought two packages is overpowering and I like a taste of all of it together not the over powering of cream cheese. I love cream cheese and can't ever get enough but it seems like to much in this recipe. Oh the picture I almost forgot.
I should have photo shopped it and made it look all brown
and nice but I sat here and for the life of me couldn't remember
how to get my picture over to photo shop so this is the real deal tonight.
I heard the kids in there getting into it so this is maybe that last
picture of it because they love it.
I guess maybe I am ready for a weekend. I hope you have a lovely
