gluten free / dairy free / soy free / kid friendly / nut free
Are you in a breakfast or tea time rut? We were. I was also in this place where for the past couple of years I was craving the Cheese Danish of my child hood.
Except one without all the gluten, dairy, preservatives and other things I didn't know was baked inside that fluffy, scrumptious, cheesy pastry.
Recreating one that would be just as cravable felt like a herculean task, and while it wasn't a "quick and easy" meal, the labor of love and sourced ingredients that went into these made them worth it.
I made a big batch, just in case they came out good, and so glad I did! They freeze amazingly well, my kids LOVE them and we've been going back for them time and time again.
The recipe is below and I do want to give one tip: If you are able to have dairy (and are just here because you're gluten free) I would highly recommend using REAL cream cheese to those that can tolerate it. While the dairy-free brand I used worked just fine, I feel like having that TRUE cream cheese flavor would have made these a 12/10!

Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.

All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
