Good afternoon, TAYanaters! During a mad science experiment gone horribly right, I made some tasty banana turnovers! So, being the kind, generous bear-man that I am, I have returned to the laboratory to craft my unholy treats of the evening, though with a little help from the coastal demon of Chiquita.
Behold the mere ingredients to deign my laboratory!
- 1 (9-sheet, 5-inch x 5-inch) package frozen Puff pastry dough squares
- 2/3 cup Cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup Brown sugar or granulated sugar*
- 2 ripe Chiquita Bananas
- 2 large Egg yolks, beaten. _thank you Ms. Chiquita. _
Now, for the first step, you should preheat your oven to 400 degrees, or you shall face DOOM...._or boredom while waiting for it heat up after preparation. _Next, you must take your 2 bananas, and dice them, large or small is up to you.
WARNING: some devouring may occur.
Next, you must take your cream cheese, and mix it with the brown sugar, for it will be the blood that courses through your creation's veins. white sugar is can be substituted, but you will miss out on a caramelish flavor.
its not supposed to look tasty yet, be patient!
Be sure to prepare your egg yolks, they will be important soon. If you have trouble removing the yolk from the rest, just pass it back and forth between the shells while letting the yummy white stuff drip down into the sink.
Now, you must prepare...**_the_ dough.**
be sure not to scream and drop it when it pops open....not that I did.
Now, you must take out 2 pieces (keep em connected) and place them flat. Then fill one side with both the cheese/sugar concoction, and some bananas, about a spoonful each.
Now, fold it over, and close the edges.
Note the stitched look, these are FRANKENSTEIN-esque pastries, its not that I accidentally grabby crescent roll dough, nope._
_Repeat this process till you run out of dough, I was able to make 4. Take a brush (or your finger), and spread some of that egg yolk over the tops, to help them get crispy. Finally, powder a little cinnamon on top, for flavor. Put extra on the biggest one, because that one is yours, and you deserve more, as you're more important.
Now toss those bad motha's in the oven for about 20 minutes, till they're nice and brown.
And BEHOLD the children you have made as they come out! Then eat them when they cool.
Now, if you want to know if they were tasty or not, you'll have to show up for the TAY movie night tonight, which is YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. You'll also get a free pass to the live eat log of me devouring my children.
