Lil' Berry Handpies.....

Hi, Folks...
I've been off line since last Friday
as our server just can't seem to get it all together.
It has to be the way this lovely pool/guest house is built
as David has no trouble at the big house.

The service man came out on Friday,
which, at the time, all tv's and my computer were working fine..
not sure what he did 
but instead of asking if every thing was working good before he left...
he just left.
All 3 tv's are getting no signals

Well, he will be coming back on Monday (I hope)
and in the meantime, I will use David's internet.
make my heart sing and my tummy SOOO happy.

I had strawberries and blackberries....

together into a red pot...

a little sugar to taste...

a little cornstarch to thicken..

a bit of flour...
a cap full of ALMOND flavoring...

dash of cinnamon

and gently boiling until mixture begins to thicken...

 Now, I'm not sure EVERYone loves
Crescent Rolls
Puff Pastry 
as much as I do....

I unrolled the crescents, brushed with melted butter,
and put a spoonful of the berries into each little roll...

a bit more butter, sugar and cinnamon
and into a 350 oven until nice and brown.

....I could barely get the oven door open to take these morsels 
out of the oven...
Mr. Sweet was hanging tight to his spot right beside the stove,
with a glass of cold milk in hand.

 After slapping his hand away,
I made a little glaze icing to dribble over the warm pies...

just powdered sugar,
a little Vanilla
and a little milk....


 the next time you are at the market, buy a can or two of these delicious canned Crescent Rolls...

a basket or two of your favorite berries......

I think you will be glad you did....

 ...and be SURE to HIDE tuck one or two back
because one, with either cold milk, hot tea or a cup of Dunkin Donut coffee,
makes an AWESOME bed-time snack........


  1. I know I would love these for sure!

  2. Don't think they could look any better and trust they are as good as they look.

  3. I hope they can figure out what's wrong. I made homemade cinnamon rolls today...soooo good! I'll trade you one for one of yours! Hugs, Diane

  4. No matter what or how you prepare shimmering, I would eat it. I understand about the computer issues. Mine was in the shop about a week. I did not like the way it was doing when I got it home. I simply restored it to another date and so far works fine. Holding my breath. Glad you are feeling better.

  5. Hope you internet problems have been solved. The crescent rolls dessert Look delicious. Have a blessed evening. Madeline

  7. Looks so yummy! You always take the most gorgeous photos of your food!! Makes me hungry!


  8. "Is it the blue wire or the yellow? What could go wrong?"

    The guy who set up my internet at the new house was a big jerk.

  9. BJ You are baaaad! You make me hungry in the evening after the kitchen is all cleaned up and there is nothing, but nothing yummy to have with my tea. *sigh* Maybe next time you could just box up a few of those and send them express up here!

  10. Wow, looks cool, tempting to eat :)

    Hope your Internet become alright soon.

  11. Oh my goodness,Bj, who doesn't like, love crescent rolls! These look so yummy,(need one now with my tea) I love strawberries and I think I could make these yummy treats.

  12. Oh dear B.J. We LOVE crescent rolls but I haven't made these yummy hand pies:) I will be making these, perhaps today! Have a blessed Sunday, HUGS!

  13. Look yummy BJ. You come up with very neat food ideas. No crescent rolls here, but I am sure going to remember this the next time I have some.

    God bless.

  14. I would never have thought to combine fruit and crescent rolls! Great idea!

  15. That is a great idea! And now I am hungry. . .must be off to the kitchen to forage. . .Happy Sunday, BJ.

  16. Cantankerous electronics, sigh. But oh my those fruit crescent rolls look tasty.

  17. Those look so delicious! I will be trying these for sure! Pam @ Everyday Living

  18. Technology can be so aggravating!

  19. Hmmmm...not likely that I will be baking, but if I were... I noticed that there are raspberries and blackberries at The Ponderosa. Course there were a lot of bees hanging around, too. Hope that the internet woes get fixed tomorrow!

  20. Yummy! Love crescents and with the berries oh my. Yummo!

  21. Great photos and SO delicious!!!

  22. Yum! These look so good ... quick and easy, too ... I might even be able to "bake"!

  28. I'd be waiting with my glass of milk in hand for those little hand pies too. Looks so yummy!

  29. I'm a big fan of crescent rolls and always have a few tube sin my refrigerator. Your mini cherry pie crescents idea is fabulous, bj. They are just the right size to serve as a treat!

  30. Oh my those look good! I had to laugh at the mental picture of Mr. Sweet standing ready to devour those pies :)

  31. Yumm...Yummm these look delicious! I have my mother's cake stand too. Mine is quite different than yours, but it must have been the thing back in the day..

  32. BJ, you are so creative in the kitchen! I never would have thought to do that with crescent rolls, but I can't wait to try them next time I have quilting friends over, for sure!! Thanks for the lesson!
    I hope your dentist visit went smoothly & that your internet issues get solved soon. We certainly rely on being connected now & miss it so much when we're out of service.
