Tender pastry made with Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour, then filled with raspberry jam and chocolate.
So this week I made cupcakes with my 5 year old. They were carefully chosen from his very own Elmo cookbook. He has gone through each page and laboriously marked every recipe he wants to make with a piece of paper. Which was all of them 🙂 It may take us a while.
The cupcakes we made were called “surprise cupcakes”. The surprise was raspberry jam inside the chocolate cupcakes. He insisted on making the cupcakes secretly. He was so very excited to “surprise” everyone when they bit into the cupcake! Using the raspberry and chocolate together made me think of all the wonderful things I could bake with these flavors.
These pastries are very similar to rugelach, except in place of cream cheese I used Greek yogurt. Mainly because I didn’t have any cream cheese available. I’m all about baking with what you have on hand! After I played with the amount of Greek yogurt a bit, I had a beautiful pastry that really mimicked the cream cheese version….
