Cream Cheese Spread

19 Aug

My kids just got a ‘Cooking for Kids’ cookbook. Some of the ‘recipes’ are things like a turkey sandwich (that’s not a recipe!), but there are some good ones in there too. My six year old and I made this cream cheese spread for a Sunday morning treat and I’m excited to stop buying all those expensive  schmear options and start getting creative with our own versions!

Ingredients:

4 oz cream cheese

3 Tbsp jam (I used strawberry)

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Spread on bagel, toast or crepe – enjoy!

Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

24 Jul

Beware: if you do not practice some serious self control, you will eat the entire pan of this in one sitting. You would never guess that it is made with refrigerated crescent rolls! I modified the original recipe and cut the filling in half – I love me some filling, but I felt like it was way too much and made it too rich. I’d rather have a piece that leaves me wanting more, although maybe that’s a bad thing! If you’re a cheesecake-a-holic (although this is a little more custard-esqe) then double it up and revel in the richness. These are best enjoyed warm, so use that as an excuse to have another :). Great for a sweet breakfast or as a dessert.
