My girl pal at work, Crazy Cat Lady Carol, had brought this in on one of our weekends to work and it was to die for. Hers was made with blueberry preserves, I bought cheapie strawberry preserves and it was every bit as good. Here is the recipe:
large croissants (I squished 11 little ones into the pan)
½ cup Smuckers Blueberry Preserves
(any flavor preserves would be delish)
3 large eggs
1-14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
(if you're worried about calories, use non-fat sweetened condensed)
water (I used milk)
1 teaspoonful vanilla
your oven to 350°. Coat a 9" square baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
croissants lengthwise and spread each half with about 1 Tablespoonful of
preserves. Replace tops and cut into strips. Place in your prepared baking
dish. Using small spoonfuls, daub remaining preserves on top (I did this
eggs and then whisking as you add your sweetened condensed milk, water/milk,
butter, vanilla and cinnamon until blended, pour over cut-up croissants. Press
larger pieces down into the liquid and let stand 5 minutes.
Bake 45-50 minutes or until an
inserted knife in the center comes out clean. Cool 15
I made a
glaze of powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to pour over the pudding while it was
still warm. Oh my, get ready for a party in your mouth!
