Last week, a friend of mine sent me a picture of a dessert she made. I immediately wanted to eat all of it, it looked so tasty! She graciously sent me the recipe from Pinterest and I whipped it up last night!

Nummy-looking, right?! Here’s what you need:

Try It Tuesday 2-23-16~Two packs of crescent rolls

~Pineapple tidbits

~Corn starch

~Cream cheese

~Any fruit you’d like to add! I used bananas, kiwis, and frozen blueberries/strawberries (mostly because that’s what I had on hand and thought I’d save some cash by using what I already had)

~Granulated sugar (not pictured)

First, light your oven to 350 (or 375, depending on what cookie sheet you use–i.e., non-stick, dark, light, etc.) Then, unroll your crescent rolls onto a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet and bake 9-12 minutes.

While the crust cools, strain and drain the pineapple tidbits and save the juice.

In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the pineapple juice, the cream cheese, and 1/2 cup of sugar.

Then, spread it onto the cooled crust.

Next, add your fruit! After you’ve added your fruit, take the remaining pineapple juice and pour it into a small pot. Add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until the mixture thickens up.

Then, drizzle it over your fruit pizza and voila!

OMG, y’all. I seriously could’ve eaten the entire thing! It was DELISH! I think next time we go to a family function where I have to bring food, I’m totally bringing this!

My Favorite Things {To Eat}

Merry Monday before Christmas!

With the big day only a tad over 48 hours away, you’re probably starting to think about what you’re going to take to your many family functions. If you don’t want to actually bring something, I’ve got some great suggestions for you! Every year I look forward to this season because its when the best of the best foods come around my house. And my family does not skimp when it comes to holiday eating!

Here’s my Top Four Favorite Holiday Treats!

 

#4. Jalapeno Poppers

Full disclosure: my dad makes these almost exclusively in the summertime. However, we are preparing for Ultra Feast on New Year’s Eve and he has already said that these are totes on the menu. I am SO excited! The poppers may seem a little extreme, given that they’re made with a crazy-hot pepper, but they’re actually not as spicy as you might think. The cream cheese really helps to mellow out the kick! Plus, the peppers are wrapped in bacon. And everything is better with bacon! Get the recipe here!

 

#3. Fruit Pizza

We haven’t had this dessert is sooooooo long! It used to be a staple for our New Year’s Eve partay’s, but sadly, its gone away. I’m hoping to revive it this year! Its a pretty simple recipe. All you need is sugar cookie dough (you can even use store bought!), cream cheese, powdered sugar, and your favorite fruits! Get the stats here!

 

#2. Chili Cheese Dip

I love this dip because its always a home run when there’s a lot of people and its super simple to make! Its perfect for the colder months and can be tailored to fit your tastes! You add or subtract just about anything from this recipe and its still awesome! Get some ideas for your own creation at this site!

 

#1. Peanut Butter Ball

My sister found this recipe on Pinterest and I have never before been so thankful for the internet. This sweet dip takes two of my favorite foods: peanut butter and chocolate and makes them edible with a spoon. (Well, I guess you could eat peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon, but this is SO much better!) Again, its a super simple recipe that looks like you’ve spent all day making, so you can totes impress your in-laws! This dip is good with sugar cookies, graham crackers, and apple slices!

 

 

Happy eating!
