During the task of cleaning and organizing my refrigerator today,  I pulled out a pack of Pillsbury Crescent rolls.  I had been happy to find this in the grocery store, because it is the "seamless dough sheet" type.  And, since I had the two "little guys" in my care today, they helped me make some "strawberry cream cheese" creations.
 

I like that they are always up for anything I ask them to help with, in the kitchen.  They ask
questions as we work together.  And, the number one question ....... " can we try one when they
come out of the oven?" 

Personally, I like the seamless dough for my recipes.  It makes it easier than the dough
that is already divided into separate crescents.


Fresh from the oven, "strawberry cream cheese" Danish, drizzled with a bit of icing.


More of the red roses to add the needed color.  Actually, I wished that I would have had a
red strawberry half to place on top of each roll.


My happy, hard working helpers, who would have eaten every one of the Danish, if the
"baking police" would not have been in the kitchen with them:)


Labor Day weekend is almost here.  So quickly it has appeared.  Summer 2014 will soon
be only a memory for all of us.  For some, the summer has held special memories.  For others,
not so.  Some of you are facing huge hurts and difficulties in your lives and the lives of
your families.  On the news front, the world seems to be changing rapidly.   But, there is
still beauty to be found in God's creation.  Beauty that fills one with wonder, and with
thankfulness.  This collage I put together for you, as a gift from me, to direct your focus,
and to lift your spirits today.  You stop by "just a little something for you", you comment,
or you send emails.  Thank you!  I pray that you are blessed by beauty and wonder this
weekend.

I am taking a blogging break for a few weeks.  I will be back, and look forward to catching
up with all of you.  At that time, I hope to share a few highlights of my time away.

Happy Labor Day weekend!

Thank you for the beautiful collage, Judy. It is a lovely combination of photos depicting the best of summertime.
You sure do have the cutest little kitchen helpers. I laughed at the thought of you being the kitchen police. I do believe you would be the kindest police officer ever.
Have a great time on your blogging break. I will look forward to hearing about it when you return.

RECIPE???

Just a little something from Judy said...

Dear Nonnie,
The recipe seemed too simple to share, and that is why I didn't do it. The first layer...lightly spread with butter. Second layer...lightly spread with whipped cream cheese. Next...sprinkle with powdered sugar. Last layer...spread with the jelly of your choice. I used my own strawberry jelly. Fold dough in half, cut filled dough into squares and bake until brown on top, in a 350 degree oven, for 20 mins. Glaze...powdered sugar and water. Mix until glaze consistency, and then drizzle over cooled dough squares. A hit here. Hope you enjoy this homemade recipe that I make frequently.

Summer is the perfect time for easy peasy recipes like this. Delicious idea!

Sometimes I wish the "baking police" lived here!

Those look wonderful and I can just imagine those two little guys waiting patiently for them to come out of the overnight :)
Baking is a great past time for us grandmothers to do with our grandchildren, one of my granddaughters struggles a little with baking as the uncooked batter or dough so ermines turns her stomach when she looks at it so I need to be creative with how she can help, she loves to try and read the recipes and is happy to decorate the finished creations!
Your little grandsons are growing so fast and look such happy little chaps, I am sure they just love to spend time with their Grandma

I knew if I dropped by I'd be delighted with the sights & smells of life in or near your kitchen. I'm not disappointed.

I hope you're enjoying your blog break. I have a feeling you're snapping Fall photos furiously, and we'll be the delighted recipients as a result.

Hugs ...

I'm glad you said that you are taking a break, because I was starting to get a bit concerned, hoping that everything is fine.
Enjoy!
