The most wonderful time of the year is almost here!!! It is so hard to pick one thing we love about the holidays. We truly love everything about the holidays including: decorating, family time, special holiday events and especially cooking and baking together. B is becoming a really good chef and baker. It is so fun to have seen her style develop.
Since B's favorite thing to do is bake we wanted to make a yummy treat that could double as a dessert and a breakfast, Raspberry Cream Cheese Danish Crescent Rolls. These flaky and delicious raspberry cream cheese danishes are easy to make in your own kitchen, using Pillsbury™ crescent rolls and a handful of pantry staples. I found the recipe on the Sam’s Club site, and they have plenty of other yummy recipes for the holidays!
We love crescent rolls because they are so versatile. One of our go to recipes when we are entertaining is this Ham and Cheese Ring. You could make these danishes into a ring too. I recently saw them in the shape of a candy cane. How perfect is that for the holidays!!!
