Strawberry Cream Cheese Croissants

Did you know that strawberries help lower sugar?
Strawberries also help our immune systems grow stronger,
it aids in the kidney and urinary tracts and they also work as
anti-inflammatory agents as well.

Hmm, what else might be interesting about the strawberry?
WELL, the strawberry is the only fruit to have the seeds on the outside
and an average strawberry is known to have about 200 seeds.
They are also the first fruit to ripen EVERY. SINGLE. Spring.

Strawberries are grown in every single state of the USA but California
grows the most... so many that they say if you lay them berry to berry
it would wrap around the earth 15 times...
I always wonder who estimates these silly facts.

Even though there are soooooooooo many ways to enjoy the favorite berry--
here's another quick way to enjoy strawberries.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Croissants

Take a handful of strawberries, wash them, cut them up and.... throw them into a sauce pan on
medium heat and let them sweeten up and breakdown a little bit from the heat of the pan.

After about 15 minutes on the stove- it will start to have a jam consistency.
Turn the stove off and after 5 minutes of cooling down in a bowl, add a dollup
of cream cheese. Take out some already made crescent rolls that you can easily
purchase from the refrigerator section of the supermarket and ----

fill, roll and lay them on a tray/sheet/pan. I like to use the non stick foil because there
is no washing or scrubbing required afterwards. You simply take the croissants off 
and throw away the foil.

 After about 20-25 minutes on 325-350 degrees ----------- they will come out golden brown.

These would probably be best for a brunch on....... a yacht, in a sundress with a huge,
wide-brimmed hat and a spritzer.... I mean 
they are good as a snack anytime or place!
