AMAZING EASY CHEESE DANISH






  • two cans of crescent rolls
  • 1 x 8 oz package of cream cheese at room temperature
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • one tsp lemon juice
  • ¾ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sour cream


How to Make It

  • Preheat the oven to 350. Place a sheet of parchment paper on cookie sheet or baking pan.
  • Open the crescent rolls carefully so as not to tear the dough. Do not unroll…you will need to leave it in it’s cylindrical shape. Slice the dough into pieces about 1/4 inch thick (as though you’re slicing cookie dough). Place the slices on a cookie sheet. Now press the center in to make an indentation for the cream cheese filling.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese, regular sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and sour cream. Add a dollop of the mixture to the indentation you made in each circle of dough. I find that about a tbsp works well, but you can use as little or as much as you like.
  • Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. While the danish are baking, you can make a quick royal icing to drizzle over the tops.
  • Drizzle for top:

  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp softened butter
  • Mix together the confectioner’s sugar, milk and butter in a small bowl. Use a spoon to drizzle it over the tops of the danish, or you can put it into a small zip-top bag and snip of the corner for an easy “piping bag.”
  • Take the danish out of the oven and allow them to cool for 10-15 minutes before icing.
