I decided to take a break from making more curtains and do a little cooking. I need the break. When you are 87 years old and crawling around on a cold, hard concrete floor to tape and paint the back and knees will really start to scream! Ok, so maybe I'm not quite 87 but I feel like it.
Anyways, onto some yummy goodness. Lynne @ Happier Than A Pig In Mud is having a party on the 15th. It 's a cookoff featuring recipes using Pillsbury products. One of our favorites is this super yummy creamy cheesy danish.
Cream Cheese Danish
1 can Pillsbury breadsticks
1-8oz pkg cream cheese softened
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 egg seperated
Preheat oven to 375. Cream the cheese until smooth. Add egg yolk and sugar. Mix til smooth.
Carefully open the can and spread out the dough on a piece of parchment paper. You will notice that the dough is in two pieces. Position one piece over the other. Press with your fingers down the center third of the dough.
Spread your cheese mixture on the center third. Separate the edges and fold each one, right over left, to the end of the dough. Seal ends.
Beat the remaining egg white and lightly beat with a fork. Brush over top of dough and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
You will have to beat everyone off of this yummy treat! You may as well make 2 cause they do tend to go fast!
It is also good with a hot cup of coffee while you catch....
....the blue hour! I finally got it! Love the look of the house at the blue hour. It looks like it is resting. Or getting ready to make more work for me!
I guess it is back to curtain making for me....
