Peanut Butter Danishes and Nutella Danishes

Want a quick, easy, delicious breakfast that the whole family will love?  That's a silly question.  Of course you do!  Well, for my husband's birthday, that's exactly what I needed, and with a baby in the house, I obviously needed something easy.  Cresent Rolls to the rescue with a little help of peanut butter and Nutella.  You see where this is going, right?  I created something similar to my Easy Cheese Danishes recipe but instead of cream cheese I used peanut butter and Nutella.  Here's the quick and easy recipe so you can treat your family (and yourself).

Peanut Butter Danishes and Nutella Danishes

1 tube Pillsbury Cresent Rolls
2 tbsp of your favorite peanut butter (I like Jif Natural Creamy)
2 tbsp Nutella
1 packet Truvia (or 1 tbsp sugar or your favorite sweetener)
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray (or melted butter)

Use the cresent roll directions for baking.  Go ahead and preheat your oven.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and open up the tube of cresent rolls.  Separate them into 4 pieces so you have 4 rectangles (instead of 8 triangles).  Press the lines together to get rid of the triangle shape and cut each rectangle in half so you now have 8 squares.

Put 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter in the middle of 4 of the squares, and put 1/2 tbsp of Nutella in the middle of the remaining 4 squares.  Spread the peanut butter and nutella to fill the center, but leave room around the edges (kind of like a pizza crust).

Fold up the edges of the dough to hold in the filling.  Spray butter on the edges of the dough, and sprinkle Truvia on the edges of the dough and on top of the peanut butter (but not on the Nutella...that's sweet enough).

Bake according to the cresent roll directions.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  You can keep leftovers on the counter, but I doubt they'll last very long!

Happy eating!
