HOW TO MAKE THESE Easter Egg DANISHES

THAW THE PUFF PASTRY

The first step is to thaw the puff pastry. Be sure to read to thawing instructions the day before you want to bake these danishes. Some say to thaw over night in the fridge and other say to thaw on the counter for 2 hours. So make sure you have your puff pastry thawed when you’re ready to bake.

CREAM CHEESE FILLING

Preheat your oven to 400 F and line a large baking pan with parchment paper.

The next step is to make the cream cheese filling. In a medium sized bowl mix cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until light and fluffy. I like to add in a few drops food colouring. Set aside.

CUTTING THE Easter Egg DANISHES

Unfold the thawed puff pastry. Using a 3 inch easter egg shaped cookie cutter cut out 9 eggs. Place them on the baking sheet 1 inch apart.

Using a sharp knife or smaller egg shaped cookie cutter score a border about 1/4 inch from the edge. Be careful not to cut all the way through, you just want to create a shallow cut.

ASSEMBLING THE DANISH

Spoon cream cheese mixture evenly on to all the eggs and spread it inside the border.

Decorate with berries of your choice. Push the berries gently into the cream cheese mixture and try to stay inside the border.

EGG WASH

In a small bowl mix egg and cold water together to create an egg wash. Using your finger or a small baking brush apply the egg wash on the outside border.

Bake for 15-17 minutes or until edges are starting to turn a golden brown. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes before enjoying these danishes warm.

STORING THE DANISHES

These danishes are best eaten the day the are made and do not keep well.

WHERE DO YOU BUY PUFF PASTRY DOUGH?

You’ll find puff pastry dough in the freezer section of the grocery store, usually beside the pre-made pie crusts. You want to make sure it’s puff pastry and not phyllo pastry (which if thinner and has a lower fat content).

CAN I DOUBLE THE RECIPE?

Yes you can! Store bought puff pastry dough usually comes with two sheets. Just double all the amounts in the cream cheese filling and cut 1 cup worth of berries. You will not need to double the egg wash.

Melting Moments Flower Cookies

Melting Moments Flower Cookies

Melting moments flower cookies have a light texture, pretty, and melt in your mouth! The taste is similar to shortbread. They’re perfect for spring and Easter themed desserts.

I have to say these cookies might just be the cutest thing I have ever baked! I make these cookies with the help of my two young children. This dough is super easy to make and uses only 5 ingredients.

Not going to lie, shaping the flowers can be tedious. Each cookie is made up of six 1/2 tsp balls of dough all individually scooped and rolled out by hand. However, all the work is worth it when you have the prettiest flower cookies to eat!

What is a Melting Moments Cookie?

This type of cookie is made with no egg and cornstarch. The flavour of these cookies is similar to shortbread. The cookie uses only five ingredients flour, butter, cornstarch, vanilla, and powdered sugar. The cornstarch and powdered sugar give this cookies a light and airy texture, causing the cookie literally melts in your mouth. This cookie type is an amazing option for people with egg allergies.

How to Make Melting Moments Flower Cookies

Making the Dough

Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium sized bowl whisk together flour and cornstarch. Set aside.

In a large bowl cream butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. I mix mine for about 3 minutes. Add in the vanilla, mix well.

dry and wet ingredients for the melting moments cookies

Then, add in the flour mixture and mix until well combined.

Take out 1/4 cup of the dough and set it aside (this will be for the centre of the flowers). In the large bowl add in your desired colour of food colouring. Start with a small amount and keep gradually adding in more colouring and mixing until you reach the colour you like.

Shaping the Flowers

Scoop out 1/2 tsp of the white dough and roll into a ball. Place them on the baking sheet 2 inches apart from one another. Do this until all the white dough is used up. You should get about 22 white dough balls. These balls will be the centre of the flowers.

shape the white dough and make into balls

Next, scoop out 1/2 tsp of the coloured dough roll into a ball. These will be the petals. Place the ball around the white dough ball, gently pressing it together. Make 5 dough petal balls for each flower. Continue adding all the dough petals onto the flowers until all the dough is used up.

Next, using a fork gently push it down onto each petal dough ball to create a pretty design.

Baking

Bake for 8 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown. Once baked, it is important to let them cool completely on the baking trays. The cookies are very delicate before cooling.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE COOKIES

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies stay good for up to four days if stored properly.
