Diet Killers...

I know, I really hate to do this to you the first weekend of June...the beginning of bikini tankini skirtini (in my case) season.
CCT
It has to be done, though. If you're hosting a brunch or a shower, you really need this recipe...and yes, it will kill your diet. Resisting is futile.

What are they? Cream Cheese Triangles. Very glamorous name. (Recipe at the end of this post.)

My mom used to make these and the recipe is written out in her handwriting with a boy's name out to the side. Why? Because my high school homecoming date loved these.

{Here we are....pre-cream cheese triangles! Yes, it was the 80's!}

Homecoming was a big deal with after parties, trips to the beach, etc. But, I'll be honest, I was a nerd. I wasn't interested in after parties (and most likely wasn't invited anyway). So, my mom made "breakfast" for my friend Natalie & I and our dates.

These were the hit with my date. I'm so glad she made that little note on the recipe card. I'm sure I would have forgotten it by now. My date was a really sweet guy....we went to church and school together. {He took me to my first opera....I still remember what I wore....a pale pink knit sweater and long skirt ensemble, pale pink pantyhose, pale pink flats (he was shorter than me) and a pale pink grosgrain bow in my hair. Yes, I was a fashion plate!}

Anyway...it all comes back just seeing the recipe.

It's easy, it's a make-ahead and it's one for which I always get asked the recipe. I think you'll like it. :)

Cream Cheese Triangles

2 pkg. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
2 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 tsp. vanilla (I used vanilla bean paste to jazz it up a bit) :)
2 egg yolks
8 TBSP sugar

Preheat oven to 350.

Place one pkg of rolls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Push seams together.

Beat other ingredients until smooth. Spread on top of crescent rolls on sheet. (An off-set spreader works great for this.)
CCT filling

Place second pkg of rolls on top. Pinch together to seal sides. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes.
CCT baked
Let cool, then cut into triangles (I use a pizza cutter). Wrap in foil and chill in the refrigerator. Serve cold. DO NOT test before your guests arrive...there may not be any left! :)

  7. I can't wait to try these!

    My 17 year old is always accusing me of beng too "matching". Your described opera outfit reminds me of why. We teenagers of the 80's matched everything! Ah....good times. Good times.

  9. I've made something very similar but in an 9x13 with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on it. Very good. Adding the vanilla bean paste I'm sure kicks it way up!

  10. That dress is awesome for an 80's prom dress!

    And though you might call it "skirtini" season I call it "hide in the shade with a very large towel" season...which also means I can eat these without guilt!

  11. These look absolutely delicious! I love your comment about skirtini season.

  12. That dress is great! I can't wait to try these!

  13. My "most famous" recipe is very similar to that, but with a cinammon/sugar/butter mixture on top... and I always serve it WARM! It's SO delicious! Now I'm curious to try yours cold.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ah, yes. I remember the 80's. I graduated in 81, though, so I just barely made it.

    And I don't know who invented cream cheese, but they deserve some sort of award. Those look delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ditto the comments about having a similar recipe. The recipe my mom used was exactly the same except for the additional step of beating the egg whites and paint the top of the crescent roll sheet. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon mixture as well as some chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans). We always had those bars around Christmas. Delicious!

  16. They look yummy, but do you serve them chilled?

  17. love the picture :) I remember going to the mall and watching you pick out some dress for some big occasion! Maybe this was it haha!

  21. I made these last night, and they are fantastic!! Yum! Have you ever tried them with a little fruit in the filling? I'm thinking some kind of strawberry or cherry mixed in would be wonderful.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wahoo ... I'm all for rockin' the skirtini!!! I love that you shared the homecoming photo - what fun. Seriously, I'm printing this recipe right now before I forget ... it is drool worthy!

  23. I just want you to know that my hair was bigger than yours (quite a bit bigger) in my prom picture. Just gorgeous. Gotta love the 80's.

  28. Do you cut these into triangles by using the perforated lines or into smaller triangles? How many do you get from one recipe?

    I definitely want to try something this yummy sounding!ph

  29. Lady Dorothy...

    I just kind of cut them free form. I've never counted...I don't want to know how many I've eaten...but my guess is more than 2 dozen. Enjoy! :)
