Homemade Toaster Strudel

 Do you remember when the original Toaster Strudel came to a grocery store near you? I do. Oh how I loved them. We would beg my mom to buy them, and she would on occasion.

I reluctantly introduced my girls to the flaky goodness a few years ago. They loved them. Then I decided to go and get all ingredient conscious and decided to stop buying them. The girls keep begging me to buy them. No.

I knew there had to be a way to make them, I just didn't know how. So, off to Pinterest I went and discovered all sorts of different recipes, but they all consist of the same basic ingredients, Puff Pastry and Jam. That's it. Well, unless you count the egg you use to seal the little pockets of love. I wouldn't say this is a cheaper version, but I like that I can control the ingredients. I do eventually want to try my hand at homemade puff pastry, but for now I will buy it.

Homemade Toaster Strudel
Serves 8
Ingredients
2 Sheets (1pkg) Puff Pastry
8 Tbs Jelly
1 Egg - beaten
Glaze - recipe below

Directions
Preheat oven to  375 degrees.
Allow sheets of Puff Pastry to thaw on counter for 40 minutes, following package directions for thawing.
Once thawed, roll out pastry on a floured surface until thin (I am sorry, I did not measure the thickness, it was pretty thin, but not thin enough to see through).
Using a Pocket Pie Mold, or knife, cut 8 rectangles out of each sheet.
Place 8 rectangles on parchment lined cookie sheet.
Top each bottom piece with 1 Tbs Jelly.
Brush edges with egg-wash.
Place top piece on and seal with fork.
Poke a few holes in top of each pastry and brush with egg-wash.
Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
Allow to cool on wire rack and top with glaze.

Glaze
1 Cup Powdered Sugar - Sifted
1 tsp Lemon Juice
3-6 Tbs Vanilla flavored Coffee Creamer

Directions
Place all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until desired consistency. Adding more or less creamer as preferred.
Spoon glaze over each pastry and allow to set before storing.

These are great for the freezer! Just flash freeze once glaze has set, freezing on cookie sheet for about an hour (or overnight). Transfer to a zip-top bag and store in freezer for up to 3 months.

If you do not want to store in the freezer, place in air-tight container and store in fridge for up to a week.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
