Cherry Almond Breakfast Bites

I just love retro cherry anything!



1 can (8 oz) refrigerated crescent rounds (8 rounds) or (8 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

1/4 cup cherry preserves I prefer to use St Dalfour black cherry preserves

1/2 teaspoon finely chopped crystallized ginger

2 ounces cream cheese, softened (1/4 cup)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons All Purpose Flour

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1 tablespoon water

1/4 cup Sliced Almonds


Heat oven to 375°F.
If using crescent rounds, remove from package, separate into 8 rounds. If using crescent rolls, remove from package, but do not unroll. Using serrated knife, cut roll into 8 rounds; carefully separate rounds.
On ungreased, parchment lined large cookie sheet, place 2 rounds side by side; press joining edges together to form figure-eight shape. Press until each round is about 3 inches in diameter and about 1/4 inch thick. Press 1 1/2 inch indentation in center of each round. Repeat with remaining rounds to make 4 figure-eights, placing 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.              

In small bowl, mix preserves and ginger. In another small bowl, stir cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla until smooth.   
Fill 1 indentation on each figure-eight with 1 tablespoon preserves mixture. Fill other indentation on each figure-eight with 1 rounded tablespoon cheese mixture.   
In small bowl, beat egg and water with wire whisk or fork until well blended. Carefully brush edge of dough with egg mixture; sprinkle with almonds.
Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before serving.

In keeping with my retro cherry theme, I'm very excited that I ordered this book for one penny today! I will let you know when I get it and perhaps read you the story of Cherry the pig, which is what I feel like when I cannot stop eating the cherry cream cheese morsels I do hope you make!



Sweet Cuppin's Busy Baking Day Sugar Cookies


3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
Powdered sugar, for rolling out dough


Sift together all dry ingredients,
Set aside. Place butter and sugar in large bowl of your kitchen aid
and beat until light in color. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put
mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls
away from the side of the bowl. Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed
paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Chilling the dough is very important to the success of the cookie, please do not skip this.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Sprinkle surface where you will roll out dough with powdered sugar.
Working with one pack of chilled dough at a time, sprinkle
rolling pin with powdered sugar, and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Cut into desired shape, place at
least 1-inch apart on parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just
beginning to turn golden around the edges, rotating cookie sheet halfway
through baking time will ensure even baking. Let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes when out of oven to avoid breakage while moving to cooling wire rack. Serve as is
or ice as desired. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.
