Layered Happiness

Here's another original recipe!

On Wednesday night, I was eating up the last of my Tofu-Veggie Melt. For dessert, I wanted to make something out of more fridge ingredients needing to be used up. Here's what I pulled together:

There are eight croissant pieces, so put two in the bottom of a greased bread pan.

Slice up strawberries. I used about 2/3 of the container total.

Add Nutella. I wanted to mix this all together, but it didn't work well.

Smush it all in a layer.

More croissant dough. Spreading Nutella on these layers worked better for me.

The strawberries will get coated when this cooks anyway.

Finish with a layer of dough.

Top with honey. I wanted to get a carmelized top. This worked out all right.

Bake at 350 until the top layer of croissant dough looks done. I left it in about 20 minutes, but in the future I'll probably bake it longer to get the middle layers more done.
