Remember this post? I said I bought packs of the Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough Sheet for 2/1.00 at the local discount grocery store. Last time I made 15 Minute Garlic Cheese Twists and I said I would share another recipe using these dough sheets.
This isn't exactly a danish, but close enough. If you need a quick and easy dessert or something special for a breakfast or brunch, this fits the bill.
I've based my recipe on this one at Pillsbury.
Mix softened cream cheese, vanilla and sugar together.
Roll out one package of crescent roll dough.
Place cream cheese filling mixture in the middle of crescent roll dough and fold in sides to cover up the edge of the cream cheese mixture.
NOTE: Next time I make this, I would double the cream cheese mixture ingredients amounts to make a thicker layer of cream cheese.
Mix together some sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on crust.
I made a raspberry sauce using this recipe, but it was a little too thin for this recipe, so I would just use your favorite seedless jam.
Bake according to package directions, or until dough is golden brown.
Make a quick icing with powdered sugar and milk and drizzle over the top after the danish has slightly cooled.
Serve immediately, and enjoy!
Easy Crescent Roll Danish
(I've adjusted these measurements to be the doubled amount for the cream cheese recipe. As I said above, This needed a thicker cream cheese filling layer.)
1 package of cream cheese softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 package crescent roll dough sheet
2 TB Sugar
1 TB Cinnamon
Seedless Jam or sauce of your choice (I used raspberry)
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 TB milk
Mix together cream cheese, 1/4 cup sugar, and vanilla. Spread out crescent roll dough sheet and spread cream cheese filling in middle of dough. Fold sides of dough in to just cover the edges of the cream cheese.
Mix together sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on crust.
Spread sauce and jam on top of cream cheese.
Bake according to package directions on back of crescent roll dough sheet.
Mix together confectioners sugar and milk and drizzle over top of danish, and serve immediately.
