Crescent Cheese Danishes


Crescent Cheese Danishes!

From the first sniff of Easy Cream Cheese Danish baking, you’ll have an audience in the kitchen, waiting for the treats to be cool enough to sink their teeth into.

So easy, right!? Easy (Like, Really Easy)? Easy like treat with store-bought crescent rolls dough.

No, I’m also not one to encourage using store-bought pastry dough, but flaky, buttery pastry dough isn’t exactly the easiest or the fastest recipe is known to man.

So if you’re anything like me and looking for a quick and easy dessert – store-bought crescent roll dough it is.

Also, once you taste these, you will not need to run into a bakery and buying one, and you won’t care if they’re authentic cream cheese danishes or not.

They’re good, amazing, awesome, beautiful, great, incredible, really nice, and unbelievable, so that’s all that matters.

So I tried my hand at a yummy cream cheese filling and butter my butt and call me a biscuit – I was surprised at how good these turned out.

I mean, I shouldn’t have been surprised. But I was surprised I didn’t start with the cream cheese ones, to begin with. So this one is for all you cheese danish lovers!

Ingredients:

2 crescent roll tubes

1- 8 oz. package of Philly cream cheese (softened)

2 tbs butter (fully melted)

1/2 cup of regular white sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Glaze:

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

4 teaspoons of milk

Preheat over to 350f.

In a medium bowl, use a mixer to combine the softened cream cheese, lemon juice, pure vanilla extract, and the white sugar until well combined.set aside.

Open your crescent roll tubes but do not unroll them.

Use a sharp knife to cut through them- slicing them. make thick slices.

Lay each slice on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Use your fingers or a small measuring cup to create a small wall around the edge (to hold the filling).
using a brush, take the melted butter and add in the 1/4 cup of light brown sugar and mix.

Drush the mixture over each danish.

Dollop even amounts of the filling into each of the danishes.

Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

Let cool and add a drizzle of glaze.

Glaze:

In a small bowl combine all 3 ingredients and stir until smooth, then drizzle over each warm danish
