from Robyn Long via Kathy Shust De Meyer. Love cheese danish...and especially when you can make them at home and they are fresh and warm just out of the oven!

Ingredients

2 can(s)
refrigerated crescent rolls
8 oz pkg
cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 c
sugar
1 tsp
lemon juice
3/4 tsp
vanilla extract
1 tsp
sour cream

ICING

1 c
confectioners' sugar
1 Tbsp
milk
1 Tbsp
butter, softened

Step-By-Step

1Preheat the oven to 350. Place a sheet of parchment paper on cookie sheet or baking pan.
2Open the crescent rolls carefully so as not to tear the dough. Do not unroll...you will need to leave it in it's cylindrical shape.
3Slice the dough into pieces about 1/4 inch thick (as though you're slicing cookie dough). Place the slices on a cookie sheet.
4Now press the center in to make an indentation for the cream cheese filling.
5In a large mixing bowl, mix together the cream cheese, regular sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and sour cream.
6Add a dollop (about 1 tbsp) of the mixture to the indentation you made in each circle of dough.
7Bake for 15 - 20 minutes.
8Prepare Icing:
Mix together the confectioner's sugar, milk and butter in a small bowl.
9Use a spoon to drizzle it over the tops of the danish, or you can put it into a small zip-top bag and snip of the corner for an easy "piping bag."
10Take the danish out of the oven and allow them to cool for 10-15 minutes before icing.
