Cream Cheese Danishes, Apple and Jelly Danishes

I spent the whole say yesterday excited about making these mashaAllah. Because this includes yeast and rise time ..I made them after midnight! It was so worth it too mashaAllah  

Ingredients for pastry:

  • 1 cup warm milk

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1.5 teaspoons salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast (equivalent to 1 packet of yeast)

  • 3.5 cups of bread flour (or all purpose if you can't find bread) 

    I mixed together the ingredients and kneaded until it was soft and not sticky, the I placed in a buttered bowl, flipped it over and put it back in so buttered side is up..after waiting for it to rise..which is about a hour and half I made the cream cheese frosting to go inside

    Cream Cheese Frosting-

  • 8oz cream cheese, softened

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Okay after dough had risen.I punched it down... and then rolled it out ..I don't have a rolling pin so I used my hands and stretched it as far as I can, I cut slices of it and molded it to the size I wanted for the danish, using my finger to dig a well in the center...I was moving so slow the dough in the center would rise again LOL ..thats because I was undecided on what to fill in the center besides cream cheese (I wanted a variety ...yeah I know that was so last minute LOL) so after digging the little well I placed the cream cheese frosting in the middle, I also used regular jelly

    For the apples, I put the apples in cinnamon on the stove cooked in water sugar and vanilla until it got tender drained it...let it cool completely and filled in one of the danishes that had cream cheese.

    Put it in the oven 350 for less than 20 mins

    After it came out and cooled I poured the glaze topping on it which is made with:

    • 1 cup confectioners sugar
    • 2 tablespoons milk
    • 1 tablespoon melted butter

    The Passing Of A Prince

    One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

    Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

    I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

    I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
    " I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

    As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

    As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....

    You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

    You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

    I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

    Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

    Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

    Remember Who Your Husband Is

    On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

    So who is he?

    Lets remember ..

    He is a gift from Allah.

    Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
    He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

    He is the leader of our home.

    Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
