Easy Cheese Danish (Guest Post)

Do you still have cream cheese that you got for FREE hangin' out in your fridge?  If so here's a great idea of what to do with it! - Audrey


This danish recipe is a result from finding crescent rolls and a miscellaneous package of cream cheese in my fridge. I usually never make plain crescent rolls. I always have to make something cooler than that! So, I made a danish of sorts. It’s technically not a danish, but it looks like one and tastes pretty close, so it’s a fake out recipe!
Did I mention it takes 10 minutes or less to make? With only 4 ingredients? Well, it does. :) My kind of treat.  I have a bunch of ‘how to’ photos on my site (www.laurenslatest.com) so you can see what little effort this takes! Happy baking!
Easy Cheese Danish
yield: 8 servings
Ingredients:
1 tube crescent rolls
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
—————
1 cup powdered sugar
4+ tablespoons heavy cream
splash vanilla extract
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Set aside. 
Pop open crescent roll dough and unroll, leaving crescents in rectangles. On an ungreased baking sheet, lay the crescent roll rectangles together, lining them up width wise. Dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan. 
Press edges together to even out edges and seal any holes. Carefully spread cream cheese filling down the center of the dough to be about 2-3 inches wide.
Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough.
Fold 1/2 inch dough pieces up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern. You may have excess dough once you reach the end of the danish, so fold them in as best as you can.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until filling is set and crescent dough is golden in color. Cool before removing from baking sheet.
Once danish has cooled, remove to serving platter. In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and cream to create icing. You may need to add more cream to get the desired consistency. Drizzle icing over danish
Cut into pieces and serve.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
