This is a very easy faux type cheese danish to make. This recipe was from Aunt Louise. That woman had the most unique and different recipes. They are just wonderful. I tweaked the recipe to make it more flavorful. I believe this recipe was most likely developed during the depression. Perhaps even a Polish recipe.
A loaf of bread, cheese and sugar! I added a few additions to make them even yummier. This is also a fun recipe to make with kids. These are delicious. Enjoy!
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly grease a cookie sheet, or line with parchment paper.
Cut the crusts off the white bread. You can save the crust to make some breadcrumbs etc. or stuffing.
Roll each piece of bread with a rolling pin to flatten them out. I place all of them on a board and roll all at once.
Beat the cream cheese and add sugar to the cheese. Add the vanilla. Beat until it is really soft enough to spread. Spread cheese on one side of each slice of bread that's flattened. Aproimately 2 tsp of cheese each.
Mix sugars with cinnamon. Set aside. Roll each slice of bread ilike you would for a jellyroll.
Dip each piece into butter and then roll in the cinnamon and sugar. Place all of them on the cookie sheet seam side down. Bake for about 20 minutes. Serve warm or cool. They are especially good warm.
