Nutella love


Well I'm back and in the mood to bake! My latest flapper project is sitting next to my chair, and I am enjoying the fruits of my latest baking project...NUTELLA CHEESECAKE CROISSANTS!! Yes, you read that right.

I had seen a recipe for Nutella Croissants, but I thought...hmmm, I wonder how it would taste if you combined a cheesecake filling with the nutella. so, I played with some ingredients for a while and WALLAA!! This is what I ended up with. We decided that it's a keeper, so I thought I'd share the ingredients with you.

Nutella Cheesecake Croissants:

4 oz. cream cheese (room temperature)
1-1/2 Tablespoon Sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup Nutella
1 Tablespoon flour
2 packages Big Buttery Crescent Rolls (I used Pillsbury)

Combine all ingredients except the crescent rolls and mix until well blended.

Unroll the crescent rolls and place 1 tablespoon of mixture on the wide end of the dough. Roll up and place on prepared cooking sheet. I used parchment paper. If you don't have any, just follow the directions on the crescent package.

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes at 350 degrees. You can sprinkle some powdered sugar over them after they are cooked if you like for an extra little sweetness.
