Start The Day Off Right With A Delicious Crescent Cheese Danish

Print Recipe

Who doesn't love a Danish? They are just so yummy and give those mornings the little extra something you need to help you get out of bed.

These ones are particularly easy to make and you are going to love them. They are perfect whether you are making them to start off a busy day at work, or just a lazy Sunday brunch.

Ingredients:

Danishes:

  • 2 tubes crescent rolls
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 8 tablespoons light brown sugar

Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 teaspoons milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the softened cream cheese in a bowl with the sugar and vanilla. Blend until creamy.

Roll out your crescents and separate them into rectangles. Pinch together the seams in the centers.

Brush melted butter over the entire crescent roll, and then sprinkle 1 tablespoon of brown sugar onto it.

Roll up the dough so you have a long tube.

Curl it into itself so it makes a little spiral.

Press into the center of it and make a nice little dent for your filling. Place on a greased cookie sheet.

Spoon the cream cheese mixture into the little hole.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

While it bakes, mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk until smooth. Drizzle over top of the danish while it is still warm.

Enjoy!
