Introduction: Cream Cheese (square) Pastry
This is basically an easy breakfast for those who don't have a lot of time for bacon and eggs in the morning. It consists of the crescent things in those cans that explode when you open them, some cream cheese and jelly.They're really good if I do say so myself :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingrediants
First of all, you'll need Crescent Rolls, the ones that come in a cylinder thing. Then you'll need Cream Cheese and last, some sort of jelly. I personally like apricot the best, but whatever floats your boat i guess.
All right, so now that you got everything, the cooking begins!
Step 2: Making the Squares
To begin, its very important to flour your work surface. Ok, so you got your crescent rolls which you would obviously open. Once you got it opened, there is a spot that allows you to tear the dough in half, if not just cut it in half. Then you can roll it out so its flat. However when you roll it out it will become two triangles. With the two triangles ready, take the edges and squeeze them together so you get a rectangle (i hope that made sense). Also, when you begin to roll out the dough, there is a spot that will almost fall apart,causing it to split in half. You want this to happen. You would do this to each half. Now, you should have four big rectangles. Now, simply cut the rectangles in half. You got your squares! If this made no sense to you (which it barely did to me!) i hope the pictures help.
Step 3: The Filling
Using a spoon of some sort, scoop out some cream cheese and place it in the middle of your square. Once thats done, grab some jelly and dollop it on the cream cheese! Any type of jelly would work, but like i mentioned earlier, i like apricot, raspberry is also good. Grape's just plain nasty, personally. And dont forget to preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
Step 4: The Four Corners
Now that the guts of your pastry are inside, grab the four corners, twist them together, so the jelly wont fall out. Now place them on to a ungreased cookie sheet. Put them in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
And now your done! Its REALLY hot coming out of the oven! careful.
