I was sent some goodies to create my own recipe for the bake-off contest.
Every entry must include at least 1 Pillsbury product as an ingredient. Since Pillsbury has a huge selection of products, coming up with an idea was simple. I would share mine here, but since it's going into the contest, I think it's best to remain a secret for now. I did enjoy looking through the Bake-Off book that has 100 recipes from past winners. This PB&J breakfast danish looked too good not to try!
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Jif Peanut Butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg, separated
1 can Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers refrigerated Butter Tastin' Biscuits
1/3 cup Smucker's Seedless Strawberry Jam
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 15x10 inch pan with sides with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and egg yolk with electric mixer on medium speed 1 minutes, or until fluffy, scraping sides of bowl if necessary. Set aside.
Arrange biscuits in 2 rows of 4 biscuits in center of pan, with sides of biscuits just touching. Press or roll biscuits to 14x9 inch rectangle. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges. Using parchment paper, bring long sides of dough over filling, overlapping slightly in center. With fork, lightly beat egg white. Brush over top and sides of dough.
Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Spoon and spread ham down center of pastry. Carefully remove to serving plate. Serve warm.
My kids gobbled the loaf right up. Thankfully, I was able to grab a slice for myself to have with my morning cup of tea!
This recipe was so simple to put together! If this sounds like something you could whip up in the kitchen, make sure to stop by www.BakeOff.com to get your recipe submitted for the $1 million grand prize, or any of the many other prizes available!
