Happy Strawberry Week!
Monday, June 21, 2010
Wohoo it's time to kick off our berry filled week of recipes, and the first one is what I made yesterday for Fathers Day Breakfast. I found a recipe for Meyer Lemon Cream Cheese Danishes on Cheeky Kitchen's blog (which I LOVE) and modified it to make Lemon Curd & Strawberry Cream Cheese Danishes.
I had made the lemon curd last week for some Lemon Debutante Cupcakes that I delivered to a baby shower and I had a ton leftover so these danishes were the perfect place to add some Lemony goodness and some red delicious strawberries. I found the recipe for the lemon curd on another one of my favorite food blogs, Smitten Kitchen and it was the best thing ever. I think I need to whip up a batch every week and just have it on hand. It would make pretty little gifts too all bottled up in little mason jars and tied with some cute ribbon. Anyway, this recipe makes 3 big Danishes that you can do whatever you want with. I added just lemon curd to one, kept one plain cream cheese, and the last one was the Strawberry Lemon Curd Cream Cheese Danish and it was by far my favorite so now I'm sharing it with you! Happy Strawberry Monday!
