|My daughter's list of goodies for last weekend's baking extravaganza.|
All sweet, like her :)
I haven't decided if that's a good side effect, or a bad one. I'll let you decide.
BUT, when I do find myself craving goodies, I'm likely to choose something savory, and sinfully delicious, like these Ham Puffs.
The great thing about these things is that they don't have to be made with ham. You can use chicken. Or mushrooms. Or ham and mushrooms. Or whatever.
You can even turn them into a sweet treat by adding in some sugar and chocolate. For coffee lovers, add some coffee to the mix, and stir some chocolate chips into the cream cheese. Or - wait for it - add some strawberry jam! Or whatever :) Just be sure to leave out the onion and hot sauce if you're going to make them sweet!
So, here we go.
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1 can deviled ham (or deli ham, chopped fine)
1 Tablespoon minced onion
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 tube crescent roll dough
|Notice supper cooking in the crock-pot...chicken for chicken tacos!|
And I was going to add the mushrooms to the ham puffs, but they were voted down
by my mushroom-hating family :(
Mix the cream cheese and other ingredients (except crescent roll dough) together. You can do it by hand (that's what I did), or you can use a blender or food processor.
Don't forget the hot pepper sauce. We have several varieties around our house, but this is the one I used:
Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into four rectangles.
Spread 1/4 of the cream cheese mixture on each rectangle and roll up jelly-roll style, from the long edge.
Cut each roll into five slices...
...and place them on an un-greased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 8-10 minutes or until puffed and golden brown.
Let them cool slightly before serving.
Thatcher wanted to try one. Or twenty. But we said "no."

a seven-month-old puppy to sit still?
Wynter didn't even ask. She knew better. What a wise dog she is. She's turning nine years old this week!
What does your Christmas-goodie-baking list look like? If your house is like mine, things get eaten almost as quickly as they're made!
Have a good week!
