Usually, I try to post recipes before holidays to try to give ideas about what to make for the upcoming meals. But this recipe I didn’t learn about until Mother’s day, so better late than never. My daughter surprised me on Mother’s day by making this delicious dessert. Just like the rest of the recipes on our site, these are easy!
Cherry Mother’s Day Dessert
1 Package Thawed Puff Pastry
1 Can Cherry Pie Filling(Or any other flavor you like)
2 Tbs Melted Butter
Pre-heat the oven to 350. Carefully unfold the puff pastry dough and use a cookie cutter(my daughter used a heart-shaped cutter) and cut out as many as you can. Next, spoon the pie filling on half the puff pastry shapes and cover with your remaining shapes. The amount this recipe will make depends on the size of your cookie cutter. Now brush the top of the puff pastry with the melted butter. Place all the puff pastries on a cookies sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes until the tops are slightly brown.
I am always looking for easy dessert recipes that take minimal prep time and that are tasty. We(my kids and I) just happened to come up with this easy recipe one day while trying to decide what to make for dessert that we needed to take to a dinner party. We came up with Chocolate Raspberry Minis. I promise this is easy and delicious.
Chocolate Raspberry Minis
1 Box German Chocolate Cake Mix(mixed as directed on box)
1 Cup Frozen Raspberries(I think fresh would work as well)
2 Tbs Powdered Sugar
First, pre-heat the oven to 350. Next, coat mini cupcake tins(this recipe makes 24) with non-stick cooking spray. Next, fill each cupcake tin 3/4 full with cake mix. Now, have your kids place one or two frozen raspberries in the center of each cupcake and press into the batter slightly. Sprinkle the tops with as much powdered sugar as you want and put them in the oven for 15-17 minutes. Remove, let cool, and enjoy.
This really is a kid friendly recipe and my kids made them all by themselves!
