Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups

My mom emailed me this recipe last week, so I made it for the kids this weekend while The Dad was gone. Did I mention holy lord? Wow. They were really good hot out of the oven, but they didn't suck even a little bit the next day at room temp. I should rename them, White Girl Churros. ...okay, I'm back. Go here for the recipe: Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups Here they are coming together at my house: Cream cheese and powdered sugar, aka, frosting. Cinnamon and sugar. White bread with the crust cut off and flattened with a rolling pin. Yep, white bread. Sweetened cream cheese spread on said bread. Rolled up and drowned in melted butter, then rolled in the cinnamon-sugar mix. Baked until they're crispy and browned. See all that crystallized butter and sugar around the outsides of all of them? Yeah, you're gonna wanna eat that. Here's breakfast: Did anyone notice the little face in the last picture?

Apple Pie Tacos. »Fritters WITH CARAMEL AND APPLE. Vi har været igang med hjemmelavede æbleskiver og hold nu op hvor smager det bare godt. Der findes ikke noget bedre end en god eftermiddagshygge med hjemmelavede æbleskiver, flormelis og god marmelade. Vi har været i gemmerne og fundet vores mormors opskrift, som vi helt bestemt vil mene er den bedste æbleskive opskrift vi har prøvet :) Det er så hyggeligt at finde gamle opskrifter, der har gået i “arv” i familien – det er som om at tingene kommer til at smage ekstra godt når man ved at ens oldemor/mormor også har brugt denne opskrift. Som en ekstra lille overraskelse blev nogle af dem fyldt med æble og karamel, hvilket bestemt ikke gjorde dem dårligere! Andet fyld som nougat, chokolade eller måske marmelade kan også sagtens være en mulighed – vi hører gerne forslag til fyld, vi tror nemlig at der skal laves en omgang mere her i denne skønne juletid :)

Rhubarb and strawberry empanada recipe

It’s probably pretty obvious that I like empanadas, and most of the time I make savory empanadas, but as a kid I obviously preferred the sweet empanadas stuffed with yummy fruit inside, so every now and then I want a sweet empanada either for dessert or breakfast or as an afternoon snack with some café con leche. I’m also trying to incorporate all the yummy things I get at the farmer’s market into my cooking, so while the original plan was to use strawberries as the filling when I saw the bright red stalks of rhubarb I had to add them, more out of curiosity because I have heard all about how strawberries and rhubarb make this great combination, but I have never tasted it before.

Voilà enfin la recette, (j'attendais de pouvoir charger les photos sur mon ordinateur, de retour à la maison). C'était pour l'anniversaire de ma soeur qui aime bien les fruits exotiques (elle est plus ou moins allergique à tous les autres fruits). On venait tout juste de fêter les 50 ans de mariage de mes grands parents et l'anniversaire de ma tante la veille, autant dire qu'il nous fallait quelque chose de plutôt léger après avoir passé quasiment toute une journée à table.

Du coup j'ai zappé le chocolat, les noisettes et autre sauce caramel et j'ai opté pour des fruits frais, c'est ma grand mère qui a fait les courses et elle m'a ramené de très beaux fruits, des fruits de la passion bien pleins et cabossés comme on les aime (eh non ce n'est pas un défaut, au contraire si ils sont lisses et brillants c'est plutôt qu'ils ne sont pas assez mûrs) avec de grosses mangues, bien molles au touché. 19 Tiny Desserts You Can Eat In One Bite.
