Roses are red, violets are blue, who forgot about Valentine’s Day? I hope not you! But, if you did, here’s a quick treat you can whip up for a lovely breakfast in bed or dessert for your sweetie tomorrow.
It only has three ingredients and is embarrassingly easy to make, but we can keep that between us!
Strawberry & Cream Cheese Turnovers
- 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls (like Pillsbury Crescents)
- 4 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
- 4 tablespoons strawberry preserves
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Pop open the crescent roll tube and roll dough out flat as shown below. Place 1/2 tablespoon cream cheese, then 1/2 tablespoon preserves in the center of the larger end of the dough. Gently fold in the two corners closest to the filling then roll up the dough until a small pocket is formed. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough. Transfer to oven and bake for to 10 to 13 minutes or until golden.
SWWU Tip 1: We used homemade preserves for our filling, but you can use anything you have on hand. Apricot, raspberry, blueberry, the list of delicious possibilities goes on and on.
SWWU Tip 2: We preferred to eat these when they were piping hot right out of the oven, but they were still quite tasty a few hours later. Try to eat them within a day or so for the best texture.
SWWU 3: Use as much or as little filling as you like. There’s no wrong way to do this one!
