I loved it in the sweet-smelling bakery in on the action and you as well, I was able to go to the Hand.

In the Revel of these beautiful childhood memories, to brood, I often squirrel recipes. Unfortunately, my grandpa can be a valuable counselor, because he died very suddenly almost 30 years ago, and has unfortunately taken its croissant recipes "".

To cushion the conceptual impetus for my Mini-cottage cheese-applesauce I had at Breakfast, because I eat in the morning, very much like cottage cheese with applesauce. My new discovery is the company Odenwald the "cold grated Apple sauce", it tastes nice and fruity apfelig and very fresh, also because it's different than regular applesauce, only after Grinding is heated.

So I sat on the bowl, so before my Breakfast and I was thinking, what you could do with Quark and delicious Apple puree from Odenwald, so everything...: "squirrel, maybe?" ? . Quark in doughs I've processed already several times, but applesauce? Then I found out that you can replace in pastries and cakes, a certain percentage of Fat (e.g., Butter) due to the applesauce. Isn't it great? Reduce fats is always good.

So I started to Potter around in my "squirrel-experimental bakery," and to experiment with the proportions of Butter and applesauce. The applesauce is not only a "fat-reducer", but gives the Mini-cottage cheese-applesauce squirrel is a wonderfully juicy texture and a fruity taste.

This fruity taste I couldn't get enough and that's why I had the idea to reach out to the Quark-applesauce croissant in front of the Roll up with applesauce the best. The applesauce pulls wonderfully in the dough and make the croissants still fruity and juicy. For the purpose of I've tried the delicious Odenwald "Apple &" -varieties. For one, Apple & pear, Apple & apricot or Apple & Mango. All three are so delicious that I couldn't decide. The reason I used all three plus the cold grated applesauce, of course. What are four dough portions ? !

If the Mini-cottage cheese-Apple sauce croissants come out of the oven, are my men of Europe, because of the lovely smell, which is not easy. I could not so far see so fast, so fast they were plastered, because they don't taste just so delicious and fruity but not too sweet.

The Mini-cottage cheese-applesauce ends fixed match from my point of view on each of the Brunch Buffet, for Breakfast, as a complement to the coffee table, as a gift for the Kindergarten or school or, or, or. You'll see, you go like nothing.
