Sunday was Mother’s Day, and if your weather was anything like New Jersey’s gorgeous 80 degrees, I bet you enjoyed it by staying outside and playing with your family.
I stayed inside, out of the sun, so my pale self could stay that way. Oh yeah, and I made these delicious croissants for my friend (who’s like a second mother to me) because she’s awesome. And I’ve been spending way too much time on Pinterest. Did you know that Pillsbury has its own Pinterest boards?
Strawberry Chocolate Chip Croissants
1 can of Crescent rolls (I used reduced fat)
1/4 C strawberry preserves
1/4 C semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I used a non-stick cookie sheet lined with foil, so if you use something different, make sure to note the temperature changes on the can’s package.
2. Unroll the crescent rolls into the eight triangles.
3. Spread about one to two teaspoons of the preserves on the short end opposite of the triangle point (crescent rolls are usually isosceles), and then sprinkle with some chocolate chips (however many you want).
4. Roll the dough up, tucking in the sides and the point to ensure that the filling doesn’t leak out.
5. Spread the bundles evenly on the tray.
6. Bake for 12 minutes, until golden brown on top. Serve while warm.
