Potluck Recipe for You

I am late getting this on here but yesterday I got a call from my grandmother's sister, my Aunt Lilly that the oldest of the sisters, my Aunt Eva, had had a massive stroke and was not expected to pull thru. I rushed to their house, abt. 45 min. away and was there when she died. She lived 94 years which I know is a rich full life, outliving her husband and only son. I could see in her eyes when she was seeing family long gone and not us anymore and I know that our Lord was there to greet her with open arms but it is so hard for us here mourning her.
I had bought all of the ingredients for this recipe yesterday to share with you and with my family but now it will go to the house for the family members coming to pay their respects. In Georgia, or at least in our part, everyone is family and all are welcome. I am sure that hundreds will pass thru and while it is a depressing note for this blog, I want to share the pic from the cookbook and the recipe. I will try to take a pic of what mine comes out like. I have made this numerous times at my Pampered Chef shows and it is always a big hit. Hope you all enjoy!!!

Peachy Cheese Coffee Cake

2 pkgs(8 oz. each) refrigerated crescent rolls

1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese,softened

1/4 c. powdered sugar

1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 can (21 oz.) peach pie filling(you can also use cherry, blueberry or apple)

Glaze: 1/2 c. powdered sugar and 2-3 tsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350. Unroll crescent dough. Separate into 16 triangles, reserving 4. On a large round stone, arrange 12 triangles in a circle with wide ends toward outside edge of baking stone and pts toward the center. Using lightly floured roller, roll dough to a 14 inch circle, pressing seams together to seal. Leave a 3 inch circle open in center. Form a slightly raised rim along inner and outer edges of dough. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, egg yolk and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Spread evenly over dough. Spoon pie filling over cream cheese mix. Cut each remaining triangle lengthwise into 3 pieces. Arrange them evenly over pie filling creating spoke like top. Press ends together to seal. Bake 25-30 min or until golden brown. For glaze, combine milk and powdered sugar and drizzle over top of coffee cake.

Yield: 12 servings

I'm so sorry for your familie's loss. My parents were both from GA, so I understand about everyone being family. Funerals were always sad, but the food was always incredible, and in such abundance one could hardly handle it all. Your cake recipe sounds awesome. Thanks so much for sharing it.

My sincere condolences on the passing of your aunt. My grandmother's sister, my beloved Great Aunt Audrey passed away just a couple of weeks ago and it feels like the end of an era.
Thank you for this delicious sounding recipe. I've posted a candy recipe using Washington state apples on my site. The potluck's been a lot of fun.

see you there! said...

Sorry for your loss, it is hard to see the generations pass isn't it?

Thank you for taking the time to potluck with the rest of us. I'll try your recipe soon.

Angela, I'm so sorry for your loss. Yes, you are right, the open arms of the Lord welcomes His child. And here our arms are empty- so may you find comfort in the arms of the family and friends gathered about you. May you laugh and cherish the memories of the one who's gone Home. Bless you and His peace be yours.(hugs)
