Hooray for the 4th of July!!! I absolutely LOVE celebrating the 4th! This year we are hanging out with my younger sister, her hubs, and my delicious little niece! I caught a "holiday baking bug" today and came home and started playing around in the kitchen . . . leading to the consumption of naughty goodies! (D-lish!) I came out of the kitchen telling my husband that "thank heavens we have family, friends, and neighbors to share with!" I boxed up a load for my Mutti to take with them up the mountain and hopefully they will be shared and eaten! So some of you may know what Schneke are . . . they are snails . . . well Schneke is the German word for snails . . . so whenever we made/make anything "swirly" I remember them being called Schneke from my Mission . . . kinda cute I think!

1 Package Puff Pastry Dough, (2 sheets) thawed according to package instructions
2 cups Coconut Pecan Frosting, you can use "canned" for a short cut
1/2 cup Mini Chocolate chips
Unfold the puff pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface, spread evenly with coconut pecan frosting, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and roll up into a log. Cut the log into 1/2 inch pieces and place on a lined baking sheet. Bake in a 375 degree preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until pastry is lightly browned. Allow to cool and serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
I have a weakness(!!!) for cheese danishes!!! I hate to say it but croissants and danishes are the two tempters for me at bakeries! I am not a doughnut girl by any means so they never worry me . . . but seeing cheese danishes is a struggle sometimes! Love' em! (Mensch!) These are great finger foods that are super fast, easy and d-lish to make!Cheese Danish Cups
