Is it normal for teachers to get test anxiety?
This is what happened to me a couple of nights ago. I had a nightmare that I needed to give my students their exams, but I didn't have them! So when I went to photocopy them, I noticed that in order to access the photocopier you needed to spin this "Price is Right" wheel which had to land on "photocopier". When I finally got the photocopier to work, I was 50 minutes late for the exam, and needless to say, the principal was furious.
How is it that I'm getting test nightmares now? I never even got them when I was a student..
But yesterday was my last exam (that I am giving anyways, I am supervising an exam today which should be fun) so now I can relax, and...
Make breakfasts that are actually desserts that you have in the morning because it makes you feel goooood.
This my friends doesn't even need to be a weekend treat because it is so easy to make!
While I don't typically buy crescent rolls (actually this was my first time), having them on sale for 97 cents was pretty much the motivation I needed to make a quick and easy breakfast treat.
Now if you should trust me on anything, it's that these danishes won't last long in your house. For me, almost as soon as I lay them on the table for breakfast, they disappeared.
I think I might need another trip down to the store to get me some more crescent rolls!
Easy Strawberry Raspberry Cream Cheese Danishes
What you'll need:
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon raspberry jam
- 6-8 medium strawberries, cut into coins
- 1 (8-ounce) can crescent rolls
- 1 tablespoon milk
- Granulated or coarse sparkling sugar
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and strawberry jam until smooth and creamy.
- Unroll the crescent roll dough and line the triangles up in a way that you create 4 rectangles. Pinch the dough together along the edge of the triangles to create the rectangles.
- Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly between the four pieces of dough, spreading on one half of each rectangle and leaving a thin border around the edges. Arrange the strawberry slices on top of the cream cheese mixture.
- Fold the dough over the filling so that edges meet, and press along edges firmly with a fork to seal.
- Brush the top of each pastry with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Cut three diagonal slits on top of each pastry using a knife.
- Bake for 13 to 16 minutes, or until the pastries are a deep golden brown. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool for around 10 minutes.
