Forgotten Goods

I'm not really sure how one could forget such yummy tasty treats, but hey it happens. No reason to get butt hurt, just pull up your big girl panties you cheese danishes and get over it! Dang.. Alright, these things are good. I got the recipe while searching a vegan pastry recipe. How I found this one I do not know, but I forget where I found it. So I apologize for that one. The nutella part I added at my own free will, How could I not? Nutella sure is tasty.

Cheese Danish and Nutella Cheesecake Cups

2 cans crescent rolls
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 C sugar
1/2 TS lemon juice
1 TS pure vanilla
2 egg yolks, room temperature
1/2 C Nutella

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar, egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and vanilla. Until thoroughly combined. Divide batter in half. In one bowl beat in the nutella, if needed add 1 TB milk at a time to thin out the batter. Unroll the crescents, and flatten with a rolling pin. Press bottoms into muffin tins, being sure to not press the sides. Once you have done this, carefully spoon batter into each cup, and then pinching together the sides of the crescents together to form a triangle shape. It's okay if some of the batter leaks to the sides, It'll all cook up anyways, so no worries. Bake at 400 degrees until puffed and golden. About 12 minutes, keep an eye on the time! Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve warm

There might be some remaining batter, so what i did was mine was make little bitty heart nutella cheesecakes. Paul and Travis ate the crap out of these. Don't blame 'em. Next time however, I will use puff pastry, I have made something very similar with puff pastry and nutella, I personally like it better, but these are still really good.

For dinner that night we had chicken and black bean enchiladas. Really one of my favorite dishes. So good! That night i added some pepper jack, really an excellent choice. Pepper jack is probably my favorite cheese, or ONE of them anyways ;)

Now for the applesauce, I didn't take any photos. I really didn't think about it until after the whole process. But it's really simple, and when I make it again, which I plan on. I will share the photos with you all! I will no longer buy applesauce. Making my own I know what's going in it and I really like that.

Homemade Applesauce

4 large apples, peeled and diced ( I used 2 large granny smith and 2 large gala)
1 TS cinnamon
1 lemon, juiced
3/4 C water
1 TB brown sugar, if desired

Add all into 4 quart pan, using only HALF of the lemon juice. Boil 15 to 20 minutes or until apples start to get tender. You will notice the apples turning into a saucy consistency. If needed you may have to drain some of the water using a strainer, I did this because I wanted a thick applesauce. Jason doesn't like that, so maybe next time I won't do it, hahaha. Use an electric mixer and blend the apples together until you reach desired consistency. Stir in remaining lemon juice, and if desired a tablespoon of brown sugar.
