Quick and Easy Cheese Danish

I love cooking from scratch, but some mornings, I need a little help. I just can’t do it all or just don’t want to! Thank goodness for crescent rolls….. They can be used so many ways for a quick dessert, like the apple hand pies I make or for these oh so yummy Cheese Danish. These Danish are so good that Heidi the Homestead Hound stole not one, but two (at two different times!!!) right off the oldest country kid’s plate!!! Hope that taught him to pay a little more attention…..

Ingredients
2 tubes of crescent rolls
brown sugar

1 8 oz pack of cream cheese
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

¼ cup powder sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons milk


Start by pinching together two triangles along the seam to make a rectangle out of the crescent rolls. Next take brown sugar (around a tablespoon per rectangle ) and spread it around the area. Roll the rectangles up long ways to make a log. Grab one end of the log and start coiling it up to form the base of your Danish. Make sure to pinch the seams closed so you don’t loose all that brown sugar goodness when you bake them. Now press a dent with your fingers in the center of each Danish, big enough for about 2 tablespoons of filling.



In a bowl, mix your softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Make sure it is blended well. Put about 2 tablespoons of filling into each dent on your rolled up Danishes. Pop those bad boys in a 350 degree oven on a GREASED pan for about 18 minutes. When they are done, whip up a glaze with the powder sugar, vanilla and milk. Your could double the glaze ingredients if you want but my hubby doesn’t like overly sweet breakfast items. Drizzle the glaze over the warm Danishes and serve. Trust me, your family WILL thank you. And you will be the Queen of the Kitchen, well at least for the day!

  16. Absolutely delicious, rich. I only had 1 tube of croissants and followed amounts on filling. Piled the cream cheese filling into the indentures, it didn't run over and were wonderful. Totally recommend this recipe to anyone. Thank you so much for posting this.

  17. I love crescent rolls for quick meals, they're so versatile. I use them to make a home made version of the "souffles" a certain bakery chain sells (although they're more like a quiche). My son loves them! I'll be trying these two recipes soon!
