Full Moon Rolls
I used to think that dinner food was my favorite...and I still love it, but I'm really getting into breakfast foods lately. Or maybe it's just breakfast time and that's skewing my opinion right this moment. Either way, this morning's Pinstrosity looks DELISH!
The Original Pin
Simple Cream Cheese Danishes. Oh heavens, I love cream cheese danishes. SOOO good. Grace "saw this recipe and thought, 'Hey, crescent rolls turned into my favorite breakfast food? That sounds amazing!' I mean, come on, I love me some danishes! Ummmm, well, maybe not so much."
"The cream cheese filling and cherry glaze just slid right off the tops of the rolls as it was baking, and the picture shows the result of my trying to salvage the filling by spooning it back over the top of the crescent rolls. Not nearly as pretty as I had hoped! The recipe itself was still edible, and actually very tasty. Actually, the whole pan was eaten in about 15 minutes. Did I mention I love danishes?"
Grace...you and I could be breakfast buddies. Oh man I love danishes.
So now let's dissect these scrumptious puppies. I don't know if it's the difference in angles that the photo were taken, but the danishes in the original picture don't look quite as tall as Grace's; Grace's rolls look more round and full (like a full moon...get my corny title now? hahahaha). The difference in shape could have easily contributed to the filling staying in vs. the filling sliding off. If there is a place to slide off on the danish, it probably isn't quite flat enough and/or the indentation in the middle wasn't quite deep/wide enough. I'd start by making sure I had a good sized indentation (and then it'll hold more filling, which is the whole point, right?).
Honestly, I think that's pretty much it. Again...when I'm done with this sugar free and low carb deal, these are on the list of "I must have these" recipes.
