Weight Watchers Strawberry Cheese Danish
We find the reduced calorie crescent rolls right next to the regular in our grocery store, but if you don't, you'll want to re-figure the points as it does make a difference in this recipe. These are easy enough to make that the kids can even whip them up if you are busy. If you don't see these at your store you can request that they order some in for you. Trust me they are delicious.
Tip: To slice the strawberries fast, use an egg slicer like this stainless steel metal egg slicer for perfect slices. Just slice one way, turn, and slice again. They will come out in great little pieces perfect for a recipe like the one below. This is a piece of kitchen equipment that I can't live without.
In just minutes you will be able to make this delicious breakfast treat that the whole family will enjoy! I love when we splurge a little on these sweet treats. What I love most is that I can enjoy them guilt free.
