Today is Joni's birthday.
Most of you know Joni,
she is my sister from Red Couch Recipes that got me
Joni and I have always had a lot of fun. She is 3 years younger
than I am. I am the 2nd from the left and she is the third from
the left in the above picture. We are at a park sliding down
a slide shaped like a shoe - like the Little Old Woman
Who Lived In A Shoe. The other two are cousins.
Joni and I are still playing together!
Hop on over to Red Couch Recipes and wish Joni a
big happy birthday!
I am going to start Joni's day out right by making her a
Chocolate and Raspberry Croissant.
Thaw and roll out 1 sheet of puff pastry. Cut the sheet into
4 triangles. On the triangle place a few (about 20)
semi-sweet chocolate chips and 2-3 fresh raspberries.
Moisten the edges of the pastry and roll up from wide end
to pointed end, stretching over the filling. Curve the ends
in toward the center.
Brush with butter or spray with butter flavored Pam.
Place in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or
until the pastry is puffed and golden.
Enjoy as the French would do for breakfast. When
we were in Paris last time we would have these
for breakfast and dip them in hot chocolate.
Each bite is so flaky,
and filled with a burst of chocolate and raspberry flavor.
Joni, hope you enjoyed your birthday breakfast!
